Watermelon Fashion

A heart-healthy fruit that we should all eat

If you are familiar with a watermelon with an exquisite flavour and without seeds, then you’ve come across the famous Fashion Watermelon. But, do you know what its health benefits are?

We all know that its main component is water, but what does that provide our body with? Well, it’s a diuretic; therefore, watermelon is great for any diet and age. In addition, it’s a fun and tasty way to consume the recommended water daily intake.

The Fashion Watermelon is rich in magnesium, potassium and vitamins B and C, which are essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system, blood pressure and the immune system. In addition, because it has high fibre content, watermelon also helps regulate the digestive system, reducing constipation and protecting the intestinal flora.

But there is more: the Fashion Watermelon is considered a heart-healthy fruit because of its low sodium content. There are plenty of reasons to include watermelon in your diet!

Watermelon is high in lycopene, a carotenoid with antioxidant and cardioprotective properties. It also contains citrulline, an amino acid with cardioprotective properties that helps prevent arteriosclerosis and thus, maintain the arteries and blood vessels in good condition. This results in a healthier heart.

Thanks to its vitamin A content, watermelon is also very beneficial for the eyes. This vitamin helps prevent age-related ocular degeneration. Indeed, we mean having to extend your arm to read through your phone.
