Why Watermelon Does this to You in Summer

www.medicalnewstoday.com
I didn't pay much attention to watermelon before because I thought it was just water and sugar plus the juicy meat that filled your tummy.

If only someone had told me how watermelons could make me look handsome, I wouldn't have ignored it.

But then one day I learned that it was rich in vitamins and minerals. So I started eating slices of it whenever there was watermelon around, especially in summer. And I'd been looking more handsome in summer ever since.

Delicious, juicy, and full of health benefits---what more cold you ask for?

If you want healthy skin this summer, watermelon is what you want to eat lots of during picnics. I mean, it's the fruit that's commonly brought along picnics, right? Often together with mangoes and bananas.

And summer time is when we often go on picnics. No wonder people look different in summer---they often glow with a healthy shade of pink. Probably it's due to summer picnics...and watermelons.

Watermelon is rich in Vitamin A, which is good for the skin. And because it is also rich in Vitamin C, it helps the body build and maintain collagen which is vital for the structure of your skin and hair.

Did you know that just a cup full of watermelon gives you about 21 percent of the Vitamin C you need per day.

Here are other health benefits of watermelon:

1, Prevents asthma due to its Vitamin C content.
2. Reduces the risk of hypertension, says the the American Journal of Hypertension.
3. Prevents cancer.
4. Improves digestion and helps prevent constipation.
5. Prevents inflammation due to its choline content. Choline also helps us in our sleep, learning and memory, and muscle movements.
6. Researchers believe the amino acid L-citrulline in watermelon helps muscle injuries recover faster.
