They also have significant amounts of Vitamins A, B6 and C, which stimulates white cells to fight infection, and directly kills bacteria. They also are a great source of potassium, fiber, B-3s, magnesium along with numerous other vitamins and minerals.Cantaloupe is nutritious, sweet and yet a low calorie fruit. One serving (1 cup) is right about 60 calories. One serving provides over a 100% daily recommended value of Vitamin A and C. It’s a great fruit choice to help transform your body to better health!
