What are the Top 4 benefits of eating Watermelon?

  1. Keeps you Hydrated:
    This summer fruit consists of 92% water and this means eating watermelon can keep you hydrated, prevent mouth dryness, benefiting cardiovascular health. Keeping cool during summertime is important.
  2. Improve Digestion:
    Since watermelons are made mostly of water, they also contain a small amount of fiber. Both of these nutrients help provide bulk for your stool and keeping your digestive tract moving. They are part of a healthy lifestyle by promoting normal bowel movements..
  3. Contains Nutrients for a Healthy Body
    One cup of watermelon includes many nutrients along with Vitamin C (21% of the Reference Daily Intake [RDI]), Vitamin A (18% of the RDI), Potassium: 5% of the RDI, Magnesium (4% of the DI), Vitamins B1, B5 and B6 (3% of the RDI).
  4. Contains Compounds that Help Prevent Cancer:
    Researches have been studying compounds of lycopene and other individual plant compounds in watermelon for their anti-cancer effects. Watermelon may reduce cancer risk by lowering insulin-like-growth-factor (IGF), a protein involved in cell division. High IGF levels are linked to cancer.
