The health benefits of watermelon
Watermelon is very cleansing, alkalizing, diuretic and mineralizing. It is very effective in promoting intestinal elimination and keeping the body free from toxic wastes.
The juice is easily digested and provides loads of vitamins and minerals.
Drawing from the rich antioxidant and beta-carotene, the health benefits of watermelon are immense.

Alkalizing:
The key to fighting and preventing diseases is to create an alkaline environment in your body. Watermelons are rich in nutrients that are alkaline-forming in the body, neutralizing the toxic condition of the body resulting from excessive intake of acid-forming foods.

Anti-Inflammatory:
Recent studies have discovered that watermelons have 1.5x the lycopene content of tomato when compared in the same volume. Lycopene is a super antioxidant that is anti-inflammatory that help prevent inflammation that can lead to cancer.

Asthma:
The powerful antioxidant in watermelon reduces toxic matters in the body, that in turn reduces asthma attacks.

Arthritis:
The rich beta-carotene and vitamin C content in this big fruit do wonders in quenching inflammation that contributes to conditions like osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.

Bladder problems:
Its cleansing and natural diuretic effect is totally healing for kidney and bladder problems. Drinking juice of watermelon rind may also help to break down kidney stones for elimination.

Constipation:
Drink a big jumbo glass of watermelon juice to relieve constipation. It is very effective in aiding the elimination of wastes.

Electrolytes:
Watermelon juice is rich in various minerals and provide electrolytes to replenish electrolytes lost after a good workout. At the same time, it also helps reduce muscle soreness and healing of muscle cramps.

Eye health:
Watermelons contain high levels of beta-carotene that is converted in your body into vitamin A. This nutrient protects the eyes from age-related macular degeneration and night blindness.

Fluid retention:
Its diuretic action helps to eliminate excess fluids from the body, reducing water retention, especially for women during their monthly menstruation cycle and in pregnant women.

Heart attack:
The combination of high antioxidants, lycopene and the other essential vitamins in this fruit plays an important role in reducing the risks of heart attacks and strokes.

Itchiness:
As watermelon juice cleanses the body of toxic wastes, it also greatly reduces itchiness that result from toxicity of acidosis.

Prostate Cancer:
Lycopene (from red watermelons) has been extensively researched for its anti-oxidant and cancer-preventing properties. It is reported to be especially protective against prostate cancer.

Skin Blemish:
Use watermelon externally by applying a small piece liberally on your face. Leave for ten minutes, then wash off with warm water, followed by a splash of cold water.
