Watermelon is an excellent anti-inflammatory; useful for those who suffer from asthma, atherosclerosis, diabetes, colon cancer, and arthritis. Watermelon contains necessary anti-oxidants that help neutralize free radicals in our bodies. This fruit is an excellent source for vitamin A (beta-carotene) and vitamin C; scientific studies show high intake of these anti-oxidants can reduce the risk of heart disease. Watermelon has a concentrated source of lycopene, found to be a great preventative against certain cancers such as prostate cancer, breast cancer, endometrial cancer, uterus cancer, lung cancer and colorectal cancers.
Watermelon has a very high water content, roughly 92 percent. This makes watermelon a good source source of pure water. Watermelon is one of few fruits with very a low caloric content. Watermelon juice is packed with some of the most important anti-oxidants in nature, including lycopene (protects against diseases and cancer and also lowers bad cholesterol), a red carotenoid pigment that gives tomatoes, watermelon and other red fruits their red color.
Watermelon is a very popular summer fruit, make sure to take advantage of its availability this season. As always select seeded watermelon, avoid seedless genetically modified foods whenever possible. All part of the watermelon contains beneficial nutrients, including the rind. Don’t toss your watermelon rinds, instead save them for later use to add to your green juices. See this green juice recipe on how to incorporate watermelon rind in you juices.
