Watermelon. The word conjures up images of summer on the front porch, the satisfying crack of slicing through green rind, and big juicy bites of bright red fruit. Not only is watermelon delicious, but it is chock full of health benefits.
Watermelon contains antioxidants like lycopene, vitamin C, and beta-carotene. Antioxidants help to protect the body from free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can damage cells and contribute to the development of chronic diseases like cancer and heart disease. Additionally, watermelon can help protect cardiovascular health through its abundance of citrulline, an amino acid that helps to improve blood flow and lower blood pressure. A study published in the American Journal of Hypertension found that drinking watermelon juice improved the arterial function in overweight adults with prehypertension or stage 1 hypertension.
The vitamin C present in watermelon also improves skin health, as it helps encourage the collagen synthesis that gives the skin its elasticity and strength. Vitamin C also helps to protect the skin from sun damage and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Vitamin C also stimulates the production of white blood cells, which are responsible for fighting off infections and diseases. Youthful skin and a strengthened immune system? Sign us up.
