Scientists Have Finally Found the First True Aphrodisiac
In the luscious, green forests of the Ecuadorian Andes, researchers have discovered a new fruit that provides energy and stamina.
Researchers around the world have been searching for that sexually arousing aphrodisiac for centuries. Now, scientists have finally found the first true libido boosting fruit.
While other substances, such as chocolate and oysters, have been thought of as aphrodisiacs, these statements have failed every scientific test.
The new study found that the new ‘wonder’ fruit gets people in the mood by turning on dopaminergic reward brain pathways.
“This is one of the first cases of a food aphrodisiac, a specific sensory pathway in the brain that triggers sexual behaviors,” the researchers told LiveScience.
They found that this strange-shaped fruit contains phenylacetic acid and phenylacetaldehyde, the substances that promote the release of chemicals that have been proven to increase the heart rate and aid the release of sexual hormones.
It also contains citrulline, a nutrient that relaxes blood vessels throughout the body in the same way Viagra works below the belt.
This fruit has the code name T-069. The researchers are hoping to be growing T-069 in the U.S. by 2015.
