I love Watermelon!! Watermelon are not only delicious, they are low in calories and are very nutritious. They contains minerals that help your body use its fluid most effectively. It does more than just replenish fluid, it is packed with vitamin C, A, B1, B6, Beta Carotene, Potassium, and Magnesium.
Watermelon helps to soothe overworked body tissues. It’s a great fruit to eat to help your body rehydrate after a workout. This refreshing fruit also wards off any ill effects of exercise. It’s rich in Lycopene a powerful antioxidant that can prevent the cell damage caused by free radicals. Unlike many fruits, watermelon loses little of its nutritional value when it’s cut, so slices can be kept in the refrigerator for a few days.
They are filled with the amino acid Citrulline. The Citrulline in watermelon, especially in the rind, is a known stimulator of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is thought to relax and expand blood vessels, much like the erectile dysfunction drug Viagra, and may even increase libido, however no one knows how much watermelon you would have to eat to see similar results to these drug products. Watermelon is 92 percent water by weight and is also mildly diuretic. Watermelon is my main go-to delicious cooling food during the summer, and this sweet, hydrating and this refreshing fruit helps cool down those hot summer days.
