Romaine for Women's sexual pleasure
Numerous studies have demonstrated that nitrate-rich foods such as Romaine lettuce, celery and beets reduce blood pressure and make the vascular system more pliable. The nitrates in these foods convert to nitric oxide, which promotes vascular health. NO has anti-inflammatory properties and prevents blood clots. It also dilates blood vessels and makes them more elastic, delivering good blood supply to the penis, vagina and clitoris. This is also a great way to enhance stamina because it improves delivery of oxygen to muscles, reducing fatigue1.
A lot of studies have tried to see if nitrate supplements were as effective and found that these were detrimental to health. So the healthiest way to increase nitric oxide is through dietary sources rather than pills.
