7. Heart Healthy

watermelon for heart

Consuming watermelon also improves the condition of your heart. Watermelon contains a good amount of potassium that helps combat heart disease and keep your heart healthy.

It also contains the amino acids citrulline and arginine that help maintain arteries, blood flow and overall cardiovascular functioning.


A study from Purdue University and University of Kentucky published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry also found that citrulline present in this fruit improves cardiovascular health.

Plus, it has lycopene, beta-carotene and vitamin C that help reduce cholesterol and prevent many cardiac problems.

To maintain a healthy heart, follow a diet rich in antioxidants and low in fat and cholesterol. Watermelon meets all of those needs.


8. Combats Cancer



Regular consumption of watermelon can even combat cancer. Watermelon is among the best dietary sources of lycopene, an antioxidant linked to both the prevention and treatment of different types of cancer.

According to several research works lycopene is helpful in reducing the risk of prostate, breast and endometrial cancers, as well as lung and colon cancer.

Plus, it contains vitamins C and A that play an active role in protecting cells from free-radical damage, in turn helping reduce the risk of several cancers.

To enjoy the anti-cancer benefits of watermelon, try to eat the flesh as well as the rind.

    1. I think you should check the nutrition value of watermelon. It would not effect LDL or diabetes as my grand father is a watermelon eater and he is a patient of both. Secondly, the think you need to count is carbohydrate.
