That's how healthy watermelon is

  1. Nowadays you can buy watermelons almost all year round, but of course they stay the best in the summer. Did you know that the melon is related to the cucumber? Melon is not actually a fruit, but a vegetable. Watermelons are not only very tasty, but also very healthy.

  1. The watermelon lives up to its name: it consists of 95 percent water! A good thirst quencher in the summer. Watermelons are also rich in iron, potassium and vitamin C.

Blood pressure lowering effect

  1. People who have high blood pressure would therefore do well to eat watermelons. Potassium has a blood pressure lowering effect. And not only that ... Watermelon can also have the same effect as Viagra. This is due to the amino acids citrulline and arginine, which promote the production of nitric oxide, a compound that relaxes blood vessels in the body. Viagra works the same way.

Beta-carotene

  1. In addition to iron, potassium and vitamin C, watermelon also contains lycopene and beta-carotene. Beta-carotene (provitamin A) is an antioxidant: it protects the cells in the body from free radicals and also helps the skin to repair cells damaged by the sun. Beta-carotene is converted in the body into vitamin A, which ensures a healthy build-up of the skin and is also good for your hair and your eyes.
