Why I love eating Watermelon Rind———(7 minutes Read)

The third part of Watermelon fruits that I can never overlook and underestimated is the bark which is known as Watermelon Rind.

 

I really like it because of its tastelessness,water-content and the fibre-content which I know that it is healthy and medicinal before I finally discovered through research how beneficial this part of watermelon is which many people always thrash as a waste but in reality watermelon is one the major fruits that has no waste.

In the light of this,I am presenting the beneficial effect of watermelon rinds as a blog post to my viewers, readers and followers on my blog.

 

I hope this will attract comments, observations and suggestions.

CAN YOU EAT WATERMELON AT NIGHT?

So while a watermelon may be a healthy fruit to enjoy overall, when you eat it is equally important. It is recommended to not consume watermelons at night right before going to bed.

Now, it is expedient to expose the major benefits of watermelon rind bit by bit.

 

BENEFITS OF WATERMELON RINDS.

Watermelon may be one of the most appropriately named fruits. It’s a melon that’s 98 percent water. It’s also got a healthy amount of vitamin A and C, potassium, magnesium, and other important nutrients.

The most popular part of the watermelon is the pink fruit, but like its cousin, the cucumber, the whole thing is edible. This includes the green scraps that usually end up in the compost bin.

The rind, which is the green skin that keeps all that water-logged delicious fruit safe, is completely edible. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider not throwing it out.

 

1. It May Make You Better in Bed

No, watermelon rind isn’t nature-powered Viagra, but some research shows that it may help men with mild to moderate erectile dysfunction. Its libido-boosting powers come from the amino acid citrulline, which is concentrated in the rind.

One study showed that taking L-citrulline supplements can improve erections without many of the potential side effects associated with Viagra.

2. It Might Give Your Workout a Boost

Besides improving your performance in bed, citrulline might improve your next athletic performance as well. However, most evidence for this is anecdotal.

 

3. It Can Reduce Your Blood Pressure

If your doctor instructed you to lower your blood pressure, try eating watermelon — rind and all. Some research has shown that watermelon extract supplements are able to help obese adults control their blood pressure.

Watermelon is also a potential diuretic, which often is prescribed for people with high blood pressure.

4. It Can Help Your Prostate

Watermelon is a great source of lycopene, an antioxidant that could possibly help ward off prostate cancer.

More research is needed to establish a concrete relationship between lypocene and cancer prevention, but preliminary studies are promising. Lycopene is also found in the skin of tomatoes, so give those a try, too.

Watermelon’s diuretic properties can also help keep your urinary tract in healthy working order.
