Benefits of Watermelon

For all watermelon lovers, here’s the good news. Experts recommend that increasing consumption of watermelons can decrease the risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease! One cup of diced watermelon (152 grams) contains 43 calories, 0 grams of fat, 2 grams of sodium, 11 grams of carbohydrate (including 9 grams of sugar and 1 gram of fiber) and 1 gram of fiber. Also, the National Watermelon promotion Board states that watermelons contain more lycopene than any other fruit or vegetable. Have a look at all the health benefits of watermelon due to which you should consider consuming this delicious fruit everyday:

Asthma Prevention

So, your risks of developing an asthma can maximize if you’re not consuming enough nutrients, especially Vitamin C. Hence consuming this fruit can help increase your nutrient intake.


Watermelons are an excellent source of antioxidants and can help combat the formation of free radicals that are the cause of cancer. Lycopene intake, for example, has been linked to a decreased risk of prostate cancer prevention in several studies.

Blood Pressure

According to the American Journal of Hypertension, watermelons are known to reduce blood pressure of middle-aged adults with hypertension. The study also showed that watermelon consumption improved arterial function..


Watermelons contain choline which alleviate chronic inflammation. This vital nutrient aids in sleep, muscle movement, learning and memory. It also helps in the transmissions of nerve impulses, maintains the structure of cellular membrane and helps in the absorption of fat.


It’s a food for great skin! Watermelons contain vitamin A, a nutrient required for sebum production that keeps hair moisturized. Vitamin A is also necessary for the growth of all bodily tissues, including skin and hair.

But nature does not provide watermelon every day. only in season. So how can this be a natural thing to do.

Unless you are diabetic. Watermelon has a very high Glycemic Index. This means it has a rapid rate of digestion so the sugar is absorbed almost immediately causing rapid and high blood sugar spikes. Watermelon is a definite NO-NO in a diabetics diet.

Watermelon can give you leg cramps, too. I love it, but when I need to work out on legs the next day, I won't eat it the day before.
