The health benefits of watermelon

I love watermelon! Not only is watermelon delicious and easy to eat, it is also very healthy.

First of all, it’s a fruit extremelyrich in wateras it is composed of more than 90% of it! So ideal in summer when it’s very hot. Eating watermelon thus helps to keep hydrated. Therefore, watermelon is also a fruit low in calories : about 38 calories per 100 g.

Watermelon does not only contain water, it also contains vitamins especially vitamin C and antioxidants like lycopene which gives watermelon its beautiful red color.
