WATERMELON

watermelon has substances that can increase blood flow, specifically citrulline, which the body can convert to arginine, which then gets converted to nitric oxide, which relaxes blood vessels and increases blood flow. There is some speculation the lycopene and beta carotene may also help. Increasing blood flow to the ovaries can help with egg quality. For any who wish to try this, the highest concentrations of citrulline are in the white part of the rind, but it is also in the fruit. You need to eat a LOT of watermelon to have an effect, about 3 cups a day, preferably with as much rind as possible.
