1. Eating watermelon may lower the risk of heart disease
Its high levels of lycopene are very effective at protecting cells from damage.
2. It has anti-inflammatory properties
Lycopene is an inhibitor for various inflammatory processes and also works
as an antioxidant to neutralize free radicals.
3. Studies show it’s great for your skin
Vitamin A is stellar for your skin, and just a cup of watermelon contains nearly
one-quarter of your daily recommended intake of it.
4. Watermelon keeps you hydrated
Its water content can help keep you hydrated, and their juice is full of good
electrolytes. This can even help prevent heat stroke.
5. It can prevent muscle soreness.
Drinking watermelon juice before an intense workout helps reduce next-day
muscle soreness and heart rate. This can be attributed to watermelon’s
amino acids citrulline and arginine, which help improve circulation.
