Italian Onion Same Effect as Viagra, Contains Nitric Oxide
An Italian onion has the same effect as Viagra, scientists say. The red Tropea onion from southern Italy contains nitric oxide, the active ingredient used in the anti-impotence pill.

"It will take complex studies to see whether it could be used on a pharmaceutical level - the connection is there though," said Mr Potenza of the University of Buenos Aires in Argentina.
Roman scholar Pliny the Elder said the sweet onions - brought to Italy by Phoenicians 2,000 years ago and now protected by the EU - could induce sleep as well as heal mouth sores, dog bites, toothache and rheumatism.
Italians use small amounts to flavour omelettes or soups.
