Fresh Kraut helps insure HOT Romance!
One of the areas of Squares that I want to pursue is fermented vegetables. The value of these tasty crudities is the lactobacilli the make Lactic acid. This acid is so beneficial in so many ways in your system.
SO why is fresh fermented cabbage or Sauerkraut a love food??
Because freshly fermented sauerkraut is filled with a good bacteria called Lactobacillus and other nutrients that is great for certain areas of your body. Nutrients and lactic acid play a big role in helping muscle contraction and in this case dilate the vessels necessary for blood flow.
This is not the same as most store bought sauerkrauts that are pasteurized.
Why fermented cabbage and not raw cabbage?
When you ferment vegetables the digestibility increases as well as making the nutrients easier for your body to absorb them. More information on that here
How does it actually give you more stamina sexually?
First it would be good to understand how the whole process of an erection works in a male
In a nutshell, you know that blood flows into the penis during an erection. So what is stopping it?
Since you have much blood traffic in your body, certain chemicals control the valves, so that blood flows to the most important activity your body needs at that time. The raw fermented sauerkraut aids in the chemicals and other necessary elements that are needed to preform this function.
So what are the chemicals?
There are several chemicals that are very important to this process.
When couples talk about having "chemistry" together, who knew it was such an accurate description? The brain sends signals to NANC cells in the artery. The NANC cells release nitric oxide (NO). Nitric oxide acts as a signaling molecule and stimulates an enzyme called guanylate cyclase in nearby cells. The guanylate cyclase converts a chemical called GTP into another chemical called cGMP. cGMP causes muscles in the walls of the arteries to relax. This relaxation increases blood flow. Meanwhile, PDE is decomposing the cGMP and turning it back into GTP. There is a cycle -- guanylate cyclase turns GTP into cGMP, and PDE turns cGMP into GTP. Nitric oxide turns the cycle on. cGMP is produced as long as the brain is sending messages down the nerve
fibers in the artery, which generate nitric oxide and keep the cycle going. When the brain stops sending the signal, all of the cGMP goes away because PDE is deactivating it. This way, the brain can turn valves on and off whenever it wants to. So how does this relate to an erection? When the brain gets aroused, it sends a signal to the penis. Nerve cells in the penis' corpora cavernosa start producing nitric oxide, which leads to the creation of cGMP. The cGMP causes arteries in the corpora cavernosa to dilate, causing lots of blood to flow into the penis. The extra blood flowing in causes the penis to inflate like a balloon. An erection occurs.
Tells the blood to make cGMP
cyclic guanosine monophosphate ( cGMP ).
Or you could just call it an enzyme makes a chemical that relaxes the blood vessels going into the shaft of the penis, like a valve allowing blood to flow in.
phosphodiesterase ( PDE )
You could just call this the chemical that decomposes the cGMP.
If it didn't the blood would never shut off. As long as the mind is sending
signals they travel from a nerves to the penis and cGMP will constantly be
made allowing the vessels to dialate and the blood to flow in. As a man ages or has ED,
usually it means the body doesn't produce enough of this chemical and PDE will decompose it all.
Viagra inhibits the PDE so it temporarily leaves the cGMP active and the
The buzz about Sauerkraut being that is as good as Viagra
...comes from a study at Kings College in London 2009 run by nutritionist Lejla Kazinic Kreho said that "pickled cabbage", or sauerkraut, was as effective as the popular drug Viagra at increasing sexual function Kreho made the claim in her book Nutrition of the 21st Century .
Kreho makes the claim in her book most people are unaware that cabbage is one of the most-powerful natural aphrodisiacs in the world. According to the Austrian Times, Kreho says, “The knowledge collected at King's College shows pickled cabbage is the best natural Viagra. It may be hard to believe that saurkraut is one of most powerful aphrodisiacs, but the British data is conclusive.” Talking to Croatian daily's Vecernji List, she says: “I can only suggest all men try it. Eat cabbage twice a day and observe how your sexual power increases.”

So what is Lacto Bacilli ?
It is often called acidopholus
n a nutshell lactobacillus is a friendly bacteria that that creates an
acidic environment and kills off a lot of the the negative bacteria in
your system. It seems to be especially good for your digestive system,
but also for killing yeast infections, reducing inflammation.
