During the hot days, nothing can refresh and compensate the lost liquid as a piece of juicy watermelon. So use the watermelon season to cleanse the organism from poisoning, solve health problems, or take out a kilo of excess. But keep in mind, when you cut it in a refrigerator, you can store it for up to four days.
- In addition to water and sugar, in watermelon there is vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B, beta-carotene, potassium, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium, while its refreshing properties come from apple and citric acid.
Rich in antioxidants
This vegetable is rich in antioxidants. It contains phytonutrients vitamin C, lycopene and beta-carotene. These powerful antioxidants prevent diseases such as asthma, airway blockage. It even prevents the functioning of free radicals, which are the main culprits for colon and arthritis.
Lycopene from the watermelon is a very effective antioxidant that gives the red color to this vegetable. Several studies have shown that watermelon juice greatly affects the work of the heart – and when taken as a medicine and when we drink it preventively. A very interesting ingredient of watermelon is the amino acid citrulin, which in complex metabolic processes affects the lowering of blood pressure and relaxation of blood vessels.
Cleaning the body
If you want to remove a kilo of excess or cleanse the body from toxins and help you with your kidneys and joints, you should use a special diet for several days – to eat a watermelon.
The watermelon will clean the blood vessels from fat deposits and cellulite. This type of diet purifies the bowels, helps normalize the microflora, and sets the Ph balance of the blood.
Cleaning can take place in many ways. The first is to eat only a watermelon for a week, sometimes insert a melon and one meal to be vegetarian. Of course, if this is too complicated for you, determine the “watermelon weekend” – or at least eat one whole day. In this child, you should separate one hour to spend in a full bath with a half-kilogram of sea salt.
Warm water will increase kidney activity.
Even a one-day diet will appeal to the body, and experts recommend that you apply this diet at least twice during the summer.
Do not overdo it
We can eat watermelon water in huge quantities, and we are not even aware that we have overstated ourselves. Therefore, keep in mind that it has a high glycemic index, which means that sugar is very quickly absorbed into the blood, it greatly strengthens us, but higher amounts can raise blood sugar. Therefore, take care of the quantities, it is better to eat more often and a bit, rather than excessively. For allergic reactions, they are almost unknown. But you can get poisoning from rotten or overused fruits, so be careful.
