Watermelon is a great treat for the whole family and a major thirst quencher on a hot summer day. It is composed of 92% water, which helps to flush out your system. This makes it a good fruit choice when detoxing.
Also watermelon is a key source of lycopene, which may help reduce the risk of several types of cancer, especially prostate cancer.
Watermelon is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which helps boost our immune system. It’s is high in Vitamin C and Vitamin A as well as rich in the B vitamins necessary for energy production. And don’t forget it has magnesium, and potassium, all good reasons to eat up a slice.
It does contain more natural sugar than most fruits, so don’t go overboard on this healthy fruit! It’s a great treat and perfect for your summer barbecue—why not at about 50 calories a cup? Especially if it may help keep you from eating things that aren’t healthy.
