Nothing screams summer like a big juicy wedge of watermelon enjoyed by all age groups. Whether you slice it up and enjoy it as is, or put it into a salad or even grill it, watermelons have a surprising large list of nutritional benefits

 

  • Water: Watermelon is made up of 92% water, making it another way to keep you hydrated this summer.
  • Vitamins: Watermelon is packed with Vitamin A (for eye health). Vitamin C (to boost immunity and prevent cell damage) and Vitamin B6 (to help brain function).
  • Lycopene: Watermelon also has the highest content of Lycopene of any fresh fruit or vegetable. Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant important for cardiovascular health, bone health as well as cancer prevention.
  • Potassium: Watermelon is also rich in Potassium. This helps retain the calcium in your body for stronger bones and joints. It is also a natural electrolyte which helps muscle and nerve function and keeps blood pressure low.
  • Amino Acids: Citrulline and arginine are two amino acids found in watermelon. They help maintain arteries, blood flow and cardiovascular health.
