We've all heard about the aphrodisiac-inducing properties of figs, asparagus, oysters and even pomegranates. However, have you ever stopped for a second to consider that beer could be the key to a happy and healthy sex life? Well, according to one UK brewery, that's actually the case, thanks to one special ingredient: watercress.
A beer known as the Watercress Warrior Pilsner is here to cure your fertility woes once and for all. Watercress is jam-packed full of vitamins A, B, C and E, all of which are known for their fertility-boosting properties.
According to the beer's makers, vitamins A and B6 aid “the production of male sex hormones”, vitamin C can “increase count and motility of sperm” and vitamin E can supposedly “help the sperm penetrate the egg”. Sounds delicious, doesn't it?
The beer, which is bottled in Dorset, UK, claims to increase sex drive and boost chances of fertility. James Harper, manager at The Watercress Company, told the Dorset Echo: "Cerne Abbas is one of the first places watercress was grown and also the location of a brilliant brewery, which we were very keen to work with.
"There is also, of course, the famous giant, who is supposedly an ancient symbol of fertility. We thought he was the perfect face of our brew. Watercress is a fabulous health food packed full of vitamins and nutrients that help boost fertility. The ale itself is delicious, it's very fruity with a peppery kick."
If you want to get your hands on a bottle of this boner-boosting beer, I'm afraid you're going to have to get in there quick, because so far just 1,800 have been brewed. They're currently on sale in local shops and pubs dotted around Dorset, so if you're serious about your fertility, I'd suggest heading on down for a bottle or two.
