• Men and women who drank a daily glass of the fruit’s juice had a surge in testosterone
• As a side effect the acclaimed superfood can help raise mood and memory



Men and women who drank a daily glass of the fruit’s juice for a fortnight experienced a surge in the hormone testosterone, which increases sexual desire in both genders.

The study, by researchers from Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh, involved 58 volunteers aged between 21 and 64.

By the end of the fortnight both sexes had seen ‘significantly increased’ testosterone levels.

For men this affects traits such as facial hair, a deep voice and greater sexual urges.

It is also produced in female adrenal glands and ovaries, raising a woman’s sex drive and strengthening bones and muscles.

As a side effect, increased testosterone can help raise mood and memory and even relieve stress such as ‘pre-match nerves’ or stage fright, said the study.

The Edinburgh research measured testosterone levels, blood pressure and, using a scientific scale, levels of 11 emotions including fear, sadness, guilt, shyness and self-assurance.

Testosterone levels increased between 16 per cent and 30 per cent among the subjects, while blood pressure plummeted.

Positive emotions rose and negative feelings fell.

Being a man I'm going to make pomegranate juice a regular part of my diet.

Pomegranite is soooo good, hate the work to eat the fresh fruit but love the taste. The fruit itself is actually a rather sexy fruit, ever cut one open? I knew it was good for you before but not this aspect of it's goodness.

About a week after I started making my incredible fruit smoothies (started a year ago) I noticed a difference! I used to use Cran-Cherry in my smoothies, then I switched to Pomagranate because the grocery store had run out of Cran-Cherry!

Wow! Talk about a boost!!! After I noticed this change, I started researching the ingredients I was using - sure enough, Pomagranate was the suspect!

Pretty cool to know innit?

Not only do my Philthy Smoothies taste incredible - but they're beneficial in areas that I would have never thought they'd be beneficial to me!

Pomagranate juice - not only is it good for you - it's also good for your girl!

Then again... prostate cancer thrives on testosterone! In advanced (terminal) cases you can buy a little time by giving up the family jewels!

Please, elaborate!


Maybe some of you who are in relationships can pursue this and let us know if there's any truth to it. I don't want to try this now, as I'm single and don't want to be stuck in my room all day

Prostate cancer thrives on DHT, not testosterone. Testosterone aromatizes into DHT so there is a correlation.

Back on topic, This is fantastic news. I'm sure many people will save a lot of $ considering the price of erectile drugs is outrageous.

How about sharing your recipe for the Philthy Smoothies?

Absolutely!
I eyeball everything - but I'm sure they're all within a cups worth.
Here ya go...

• Fat Free Mountain High Vanilla Yogurt
• Pineapple chunks (I chop into 1 inch cubes)
• Strawberries (if they're small, I use 'em whole - if large, I chop in half)
• Blueberries
• 1 Banana (broken into small chunks)
• 1 huge Kiwi (I use a potato peeler to remove the skin, but dayum these things are slippery!)
• Pomegranate Juice (the more you use, the thinner the smoothie gets)
• Cran-Cherry (if you can't find Pomegranate or vice/versa)

I chop and freeze all my fruit (except the bananas) so I won't have to worry about using ice, which waters down the flavor in my opinion. That option is entirely up to you. I get my fruit from my local Farmers Market. Come to think of it, you can use frozen fruit too, which my blueberries usually are. I get mine from Stater Bros.

So, I dump everything one-by-one into the blender - then I add the juice a little at a time. When I hit the Chop button, I start adding the juice until it gets to the consistency that I want, which is in between thick and thin.

I tend to use more pineapple and strawberries than anything - those two ingredients together are an absolute lethal combination of BOOYA to me!

Try it out and report back!

Great info OP!! I KNEW it was more than physcological. I have personally experienced all those effects, not the facial hair though, thank goodness!

My favorite thing about fall/winter is pomegranates. They've been my favorite fruit, make that favorite food, ever since I first tasted one. I'm glad they finally have received the recognition and accolades they righty deserve. In the fall I watch the sales and this one local grocery store almost every year sells them for .99/each, I'll buy between 100-200, depending on how late in the season it is, how many i've consumed already that season. I'll call ahead to make sure they have enough, am always asked what i'm going to do with them all! Its such an exciting event, the day I see they are on sale and I make my trek, giggling with delight and anticipation!!

They usually run $2.50 to $3.00 apiece, I'll only eat a few a week then, but when the sale hits, I've been known to eat 5 a day; usually all in a row. And the main reason so many.....I get a natural energy and a splendid mood! Its the one thing that helps my energy a marked difference. I have a congenital chronic illness, extreme fatigue being one of the main and most annoying side effect.

The pomegranates I look for are by a company called POM Wonderful. Besides ones I've had from a friends tree in southern California, they are the best ones i've tried. I've had maybe 2 sub par from the at least 1000 I've consumed over the years from this company. And no I don't work for them, wouldn't mind though!

They make bottled pom juice that I've had and like it very much, do notice some effects, but not as powerful as the fresh fruit. I've become quite an expert at consuming them quickly and without mess; I mean, if there was a contest I would definately win. I trust my ability so much I once ate one in a white evening gown ready to head out the door to a party, not a drop on me. My favorite way though is tucked in bed on a cold night with a beat up towel from chin down. I tell you, its a spiritual experience!!! My mood is lifting just reliving the memorys


Star and flag OP for valuable information and giving me an opportunity to gush about my true love!

Miss Sile
:O

PS. I've never told anyone, but always thought to myself, ”the man who brings me a ripe pomegranate in the dead of summer will win my heart”...i still have hope.

Its probably true, but as far as a Viagra effect goes..Take three cloves of Garlic then chunder down a teaspoon full of Cayenne in an 8oz glass of warm water..Two hours later the effect comes on. It might be worth mentioning that this will also get you off of oxygen if taken over a few days, as it opens all the little arteriols in the lungs and heart and everywhere else for that matter.Taken over months lung tissue will regenerate. Some doctors carry Cayenne around for heart attack patients and midwives use it for Post Partum bleeding.
