Can Grapefruit Juice Help To Increase
A certain website (which shall remain nameless here), has been
advocating the use of grapefruit juice to help increase penis size, and we wanted to explore whether this
option is actually true.
Ever since the dawn of mankind, there have
been several "home remedies" out there which promise to increase penis size, ranging from the absolutely ridiculous
to the possibly effective. We all know that grapefruit juice is good for you, but can it really help you grow a
bigger penis? Let's find out.
So What's The Deal? Does it REALLY
Back to the purveyors of the story. The
theory goes like this; if you’re taking a male enhancement pill (none is specified), by drinking grapefruit juice
you are enhancing the bioavailability of nutrients, very similar to the way Bioperine does it. This same site
also talks about topics such as "7 major mistakes you must avoid if you want to make your penis bigger", as
well as why penises are so much bigger today than 20 years ago. So how does it do this? Well, the secret
As a pill makes it way through your body,
there is something called the "first pass" effect, which is a fancy term for the amount of a drug/nutrient that
gets blocked through the liver and gut wall. Because of this "first pass" effect and the metabolism that is broken
down, the concentration of a pills ingredients are broken down and "blocked" from reaching your system, thereby
eliminating some of the effects.
What grapefruit juice does is it inhibits the
cytochrome P450 CYP3A4 enzyme, which allows for more of the drug/nutrient to pass through the metabolic process.
This allows you to essentially get "more" out of a pill than if you had not drank any grapefruit
In some cases, this can be a bad thing (even
fatal), allowing too much of a drug to be absorbed, but this normally only occurs with certain medications. So, how
would something like this increase penis size? Well, because grapefruit juice is a potent inhibitor of CYP3A4, if
you are taking a supplement you will be getting greater effects from the supplement than if you weren’t drinking
But therein lays the problem, there is no
clinical research to suggest that it will increase the bioavailability of non-synthetic ingredients. Furthermore,
getting too much of something may actually increase the risk of side effects, or even potentially make it less
The Health Benefits of Grapefruit
While I personally don't like the taste of
grapefruit, there is no doubt that it can produce a wide variety of benefits. Since it is packed with Vitamin C, it
is know as a very potent antioxidant, which helps to protect against immune deficiencies, help lower the risk of
cardiovascular disease, and even shorten the duration of the common cold.
There are literally THOUSANDS of supplements
that contain Vitamin C, and the FDA recommends a daily allowance of 500 mg. The average glass of grapefruit juice
(8 oz) contains 92 mg of Vitamin C, so in essence you would need to consume 1.25 quarts of grapefruit juice to meet
the daily allowance. That's alot of Grapefruit juice!
Of course, you get Vitamin C from several
other foods that you eat throughout the day, although it is pretty difficult to meet the 500 mg daily allowance
just by eating foods. It is suggested that you take a multi vitamin to do this, or even a Vitamin C
Grapefruit juice also contains other
elements, including a healthy dose of calcium, potassium, and folic acid, among others. There is no doubt that
grapefruit juice is healthy for you, but can it really increase penis size?
The Bottom line
It may be worth testing out this theory on
your own, and we will begin experimenting with this as well to see if it can be proven on our end. As to the idea
that grapefruit juice alone will help to grow your penis, of course it won't. But, there is some truth to the fact
that it will help increase the bioavailability of a nutrient. Keep in mind that if you do decide to try a male
enhancement supplement and drink grapefruit juice with it, that you probably should start out with the lowest
dosage possible, to see what kind of effect you get from it. At the very least it will give you a boost in Vitamin
C, and help you lead an overal healthier life.
