Need an excuse to eat more watermelon? Here are FIVE:

Eating watermelon keeps you hydrated.

Watermelon is 92% water but tastes like dessert. Is there anything better than that? This extra water is particularly helpful in summer when it’s easier to get dehydrated.

Watermelon fights aging.

According to the Journal of Medicinal Plants Research, watermelon slows aging and boosts the skin’s health. How?

Watermelon contains an antioxidant called lycopene that has been shown to slow aging. It is also high in water and fiber which keep the skin clear and free from inflammation.

Watermelon is a diet-friendly snack.

Trying to keep a slim summer shape? Watermelon can satisfy your sweet cravings with only 46 calories per cup!

Watermelon is good for your heart.

The lycopene in watermelon that protects your skin is also great for your heart health. Lycopene prevents stiffening of the artery walls and helps to keep blood pressure and cholesterol at healthy low levels.

Watermelon could help you recover more effectively after a workout.

Watermelon contains an amino acid called citrulline which helps to reduce muscle soreness. One study tested the effects of watermelon juice on athletes and found that the juice helped the athletes experience less soreness and quicker heart rate recovery.
