The battle of the bulge could be won with the sweet and juicy melons that can be served as a lip-smacking dessert or a snack without adding to the bulge. Hence the watermelon diet is the perfect choice of an ideal weight loss program.
Fight Fatigue and Keep Your Metabolism in High Gear with Watermelon
On a typical summer day, watermelons are extremely refreshing as they have very high water content, 92% water and 8% sugar.
Rich in electrolytes (sodium and potassium), this wonder fruit amazingly nourishes your body. It not only replaces the electrolytes lost through sweat but also hydrates your cells and maintains the water balance in the cells. Metabolism is boosted as the functionality of the cells is increased, ultimately energizing your body.
The four great fatigue fighters - potassium, Vitamin C, lycopene and iron found in watermelon drive away any feeling of fatigue you may experience.
Naturally, watermelons are 'The Pick of the Season’.
Relax and Chill Out with Watermelon Juice
Are you stressed out? Watermelon is a ‘sensational’ stress buster says research. Watermelon is high in vitamin B6- and is used by the body to produce brain chemicals, which may relieve stress, anxiety and panic attacks. It naturally relaxes the blood vessels without any side effects.
Add Spice to Your Marital Life with Watermelons:
The popular summer fruit may be a natural Viagra say, research scientists. The luscious summer fruit is rich in an amino acid called citrulline. Citrulline relaxes and dilates blood vessels very much like Viagra and other drugs that are used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED).
