10 Amazing Health Benefits of Watermelon


10 Amazing Health Benefits of Watermelon



Hello friends, Hope you all doing great. Today I talk about amazing health benefits of Watermelon. Its common knowledge that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables will help to keep our immune system in good shape. Recent scientific studies and experience are revealing amazing nutritional properties of certain fruits -and with the right knowledge they can be used in the treatment and prevention of specific health problems.  Watermelon not only tastes great , it's full of health giving nutrients, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. So without further a do , let's share its benefits -






1 - Highly alkalising :


The ph balance of the body is regarded as crucial for good health , eating watermelon helps to counterfact harmful acidity levels that are produced by many common foods in the western diet. 

2 - Reduces Heart disease :


Recent research shows clear signs that watermelon can reduce arteriosclerosis in animals. As a rich source of citrulline, it make sense that it may also reduce arterial plaque in humans. High levels of potassium also contribute to a healthy heart. Consumption of watermelon juice has been found to increase plasma concentrations of lycopene and beta-carotene and numerous scientific studies have already shown lycopene good for the cardiovascular health.

3 - High Water Content :


Fully ripe watermelons contain over 90% water, perfect to quench your thirst on a hot day ! More than that , water rich foods are regarded as being especially beneficial for overall health as dehydration causes adverse condition in the body.

4 - Reduces Blood sugar :


Great news for diabetes sufferers ! Watermelon is included in the list of plants and foods that can help to lower blood glucose levels, stimulating the effect of insulin in the body.






5 - Reduces High blood-pressure :


Several studies have found benefits from watermelon to the cardiovascular system. A 2012 study found that watermelon extract supplementation (6gm per day for 6 weeks) reduces ankle blood-pressure and carotid augmentation index in obese adults with prehypertension or hypertension. A 2014 study found that watermelon may provide cardioprotection by reducing aortic blood-pressure in obese adults in hypertension.

6 - Strengthens bones :


Lycopene is generally accepted as being beneficial for bone health so it makes a good remedy to help combat degenerative bone diseases  such as osteoporosis.

7 - Cleanse Kidneys :


The high concentration of citrulline , which is converted by the body into arginine , has positive implications for urinary system health and the high water content also assists here.

8 - Produces Energy :


Watermelon contains natural sugars and Vitamin B to boost our energy levels without the unwanted effects of refined sugar or chemically enhanced energy drinks.

9 - Boosts immune system :


High level of Vitamin C and A will give our immune system a valuable boost.  Lycopene and beta-carotene also help to remove free radicals that cause cell damage. 






10 - Anti- Cancer :


Studies have indicated that the antioxidant lycopene , which gives watermelons their characteristic red color, may have supplementary benefits in the treatment and prevention of prostate and other cancers. Lycopene is noted for its ability to combat free radicals that triggers the onset and development of many chronic degenerative diseases like cancer. The seeds also contains triterpenes  that can help to inhibit the growth of leukaemia cells.
