HEALTH BENEFITS OF WATERMELON
Watermelons have become synonymous with summer and picnics, for good reason.

Their refreshing quality and sweet taste help to combat the heat and also provide a guilt-free, low maintenance dessert for kids and adults alike to enjoy.

Watermelon is a nutrient dense food that provides a high amount of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants for a low amount of calories.

Some health benefits include:

Decreases risk of obesity: since it is composed of 92% water, watermelon fills you up and leaves you satiated.

Asthma prevention: Consuming high levels of Vitamin C reduces risk of developing asthma.

Watermelon is high in Vitamin C.

Promotes healthy skin and hair: Watermelon is also great for your skin because it contains vitamin A, a nutrient required for sebum production that keeps hair moisturized.

Vitamin A is also necessary for the growth of all bodily tissues, including skin and hair .
