Benefits for our health

FOR THE HEART Thanks to its L-Citrulline based composition, watermelon helps relax capillaries; it also metabolises arginine, which is very beneficial for the heart and high blood pressure.

You should know that if you practice sports, or have overexerted yourself or even after a long day at work, our muscles store lactic acid and ammonia.

So watermelon will be your best bet to get rid of it, relax your muscles, eliminate that fatigue and help your muscles recover their energy, as L-Citrulline has those properties.

But not only that, the high content of potassium in watermelon helps you strengthen the muscular and nervous system.

BENEFITS OF WATERMELON: ANTIOXIDANT Just by looking at the attractive red colour of watermelon, it is easy to know that it is high in antioxidants, thus helping you to prevent ageing and keep your tissues in optimal condition.

DEPURATIVE PROPERTIES Another of the benefits of watermelon is that it is high in fibre, which will help you eliminate toxins from your body and cleanse your intestines.

NATURAL VIAGRA Studies carried out by scientists at the University of Texas have shown that one serving of watermelon could have the same effect in the body as that generated by the renowned drug for erectile dysfunction.

This is because the fruit contains citrulline, a substance that relaxes blood vessels. When you eat watermelon, it appears that citrine is transformed into another compound known as arginine, an amino acid that improves the production of nitric oxide, relaxing the blood vessels and facilitating blood flow, similar to the effect produced by Viagra.

ANTI-RHEUMATIC Watermelon is made up of several alkaline minerals, so it is ideal for those with rheumatic problems.

LAXATIVE EFFECT If you suffer from constipation, watermelon will help you with that unpleasant discomfort, thanks to its properties and composition enriched with fibre.

PREVENTS CANCER Being a source of vitamin C, and other antioxidants, it helps fight the formation of free radicals associated with the development of cancer; Lycopene intake has been positively linked to a decreased risk of prostate cancer, according to multiple research studies.

IMPROVES EYE HEALTH Beta-carotene is transformed into vitamin A, helping to produce pigments in the eye retina and protect against age-related macular degeneration. Likewise, it prevents night blindness, helps maintain your skin, teeth, skeletal and other soft tissues, as well as healthy mucous membranes.

DIURETIC EFFECT Watermelon increases the flow of urine and protects the kidneys, while at the same time playing a part in the process of eliminating ammonia from the liver, which makes it a diuretic and a natural slimming food. Citrine also plays a key role in this case, as it has the ability to block TNAP activity, causing our fat cells to produce less fat tissue, thus helping to prevent excessive accumulation of body fat.
