Here are five examples that make her a great ally.
IT HELPS TO LOSE WEIGHT
Watermelon consists mainly of water (over 90%). It is therefore to be preferred if you want to follow a slimming diet and lose weight. Especially since this fruit is very low in calories recording only 30 kcal per 100 g.
IT PROTECTS THE HEART
This fruit, which also has a diuretic action, contains an amino acid called citrulline, which contributes to the vitality of blood vessels. Therefore, adding watermelon to your diet would reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.closevolume_off IT PROLONGS THE TANNED COMPLEXION
If recommended for good hydration, watermelon boosts and prolongs the tan thanks to a high concentration of vitamins B and B6. Some brands like Bali Body even market watermelon tanning oils. The oil would also speed up healing.
IT PREVENTS CERTAIN CANCERS
Watermelon is a preferred fruit to fight against certain cancers. Indeed, the red color of its flesh is due to the presence of lycopene, an antioxidant which, according to numerous studies, is effective in stopping the appearance of diseases which particularly affect the prostate.
IT IMPROVES TRANSIT
If they facilitate the elimination of toxins accumulated in the body, watermelon seeds – which some unfortunately prefer not to keep – contain fibers that contribute to good intestinal transit. These “glitches” are also a great source of energy.
