`Viagra effect` from a glass of pomegranate juice
Men and women who drank a daily glass of pomegranate juice for a fortnight experienced a surge in the hormone testosterone, which increases sexual desire in both genders, Daily Mail reported Friday.

The latest achievement claimed for pomegranates, which are already acclaimed as a superfood, will be welcome among those who would prefer a natural aphrodisiac.

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.
