The search for the viagra alternative is relentless. On the natural approach, besides Tongkat Ali, now the attention is switching to我的美人(wo3de1mei3ren2, “My Belle” in Chinese), pun for Watermelon.

It is now believed that watermelon is richer in citrulline than previously thought. Citrulline is the amino acid which converts to arginine in the body. This boosts nitric oxide which relaxes and dilates blood vessels much like Viagra and other ED(erectile dysfunction) drugs.

Watermelon is one of the most common and favourite fruit in Singapore and around the region and most probably worldwide. It is not uncommon to see people savouring pieces of watermelon during lunch hours at those public eating places. Did these people feel the anti-ED or extra sensation ?

Surely not. According to the report, Dr Bhimu Patil of the Fruit and Vegetable Improvement Center at Texas A&M University disclosed that although the flesh has citrulline, most of the citrulline is found in the watermelon rind.

Who will eat that ?

During your next lunch hour, start looking out for those people bitting the watermelon rind or those asking the juice vendor to grind the rind together with the red or yellow juicy flesh. Sweet and no side effect, you know ?

Hang on !

No one including the researcher can tell how many “Belle” one will need to achieve the desired effect.

In the absence of the Viagra/Cialis alternative, N-Hanz that the Malaysian researchers have reported to have developed last year using walnuts, the only available walnut-based anti-erectile dysfunction solutions should be those from China, one of which was exhibited in last year’s Canton Fair.

Yesterday, the Singapore Health Sciences Authority (HSA) has issued a warning against a product called ‘Power 1 Walnut’. The name of the product must have misled ignorant sexually dysfunctional people into thinking that it contains natural herbal ingredients, not knowing that this Power 1 Walnut contains 2 potent ingredients, glibenclamide and sildenafil which can be deadly if mishandled. These 2 are strict prescription medicines – glibenclamide is used for treating diabetes and sildenafil is the drug found in Viagra which treats impotency.

Power 1 Walnut’, supposedly manufactured by a company in Guangzhou, China is one of the 36,000 illegal sexual enhancement pills seized by police and HSA 2 evenings ago.

At the time of the report by ChannelNews Asia, 6 male people who had consumed ‘Power 1 Walnut’ suffered a serious adverse reaction, resulting in hypoglycaemia (very low blood sugar levels) and if untreated in time, could lead to unconsciousness, seizures and sometimes death. Although the 6 patients were discovered and treated, one of them is critically ill and is under close observation in a hospital.

HSA founded that this ‘wonder‘ pill is more like a diabetes drug than a sexual enhancement one as it contains 90mg of glibenclamide – about 5 times the amount prescribed to a diabetic patient – and only 7mg of sildenafil, far below the 25mg to 100mg needed for any sexual enhancement effect.

This kind of unscrupulous company who“挂羊头卖狗肉” (displays goat’s head but sells dog’s meat) should be severely punished as it again also tarnishes the reputation of honest manufacturers and also other decent “Made in China” brands of health enhancement products.
