A daily glass can act like Viagra, new research shows.
Nearly half the men who drank it for a month in the American study said they found it easier to rise to the occasion.
It is thought the juice is rich in antioxidants which increase blood supply to the tackle.
Just like drugs for impotence, the antioxidants raise levels of nitric oxide, which relaxes blood-vessel walls.
Fifty-three volunteers aged 21 to 70 – with mild to moderate problems – drank 8fl oz with their evening meal.
Researcher Dr Christopher Forest, of the University of California in Los Angeles, said: “Pomegranate juice has great potential in the management of erectile dysfunction.”
Pomegranates have already been hailed a superfruit capable of reducing the risk of heart disease and preventing prostate cancer.
The fruit is believed to have more antioxidants than any other juice, tea or red wine.
And in Greece it is a symbol of fertility.
