HEALTHY LIVING: Health Wonders of Watermelon That You Didn't Know

I didn't like watermelon, because it has
so many seeds until I stumbled on these
health benefits of watermelons which are
listed below which are really amazing.

»Fight Cancer
The lycopene in watermelon has been
found to be effective in preventing
cancers, particularly breast cancer, colon
cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer,
and endometrial cancer.

»Relieve Kidney Disorders
Watermelon is a good source of
potassium, which is very helpful in
cleaning off the toxic depositions in the
kidneys. Moreover, it is helpful in
reducing concentration of uric acid in the
blood, thereby reducing the chances of
kidney damages.

»Reduce High Blood Pressure
As watermelons are rich in potassium
and magnesium, they help in controlling
blood pressure and maintaining the
body's proper electrolyte and acid-base
balance.

»Improves Eye Health
Watermelon is an excellent source of
vitamin A and beta carotene, which help
improve overall eye health.

»Reduce Heart Disease Risk
Apart from protective cancers, lycopene
in watermelon also prevents you from
cardiovascular (heart) diseases.
Watermelon also contains the amino
acids citrulline and arginine, which can
help promote arteries, blood flow, and
overall heart health.

»Boosts the Immune System
Vitamin C in watermelon can help boost
the immune system, which in turn help
protect your body from various illness
and infections.

»Treats Erectile Dysfunction (Impotence)
Arginine present in water melon is
beneficial in treating erectile
dysfunction.

»Aid in Energy Production
Watermelon is an excellent source of
vitamin B6 and vitamin B1, which are
necessary for energy production.

»Promote Weight Loss
Watermelon is low in calories and high in
water content, hence it is a perfect snack
for people looking to lose weight.

»Prevent Osteoporosis
Watermelon is rich in magnesium, a
nutrient known to help strengthen the
bone, thereby beneficial in preventing
osteoporosis.

»Reduce Blood Sugar
Minerals such as potassium and
magnesium help in proper functioning of
insulin in the body, thus reducing the
blood sugar level. Arginine, another
component found in water melons also
has been shown to improve insulin
sensitivity in patients with type 2
diabetes.

»Keeps Body Hydrated
Since watermelon contains high water
content – 92 percent water, it can help
to replenish body fluids. Also,
watermelons help in providing a cooling
effect in your body. So it's the best
refreshing snack option during the hot
season.
