Along with being amazingly refreshing, watermelon is a great source of nutrients, too. This summer fruit is a whopping 92% water, making it a hydrating food. Like tomatoes, watermelon gets it red color from lycopene, a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that’s especially important for cardiovascular health . Watermelon also contains cytrolline, which our bodies convert to the amino acid arginine, which helps with blood flow, and contains other necessary nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin A and potassium. While its delicious right off the rind, these healthy recipes are a great way to mix up the way you get your watermelon fix.
