Dietitians appreciated the watermelon’s influence on health long ago. A recent study shed a fresh light on its potential salubrious qualities. Watermelons contain a high concentration of lycopene, an antioxidant that helps diminish the risk of developing cancer and other diseases. The watermelon also helps bring down your weight due to citrulline that conduces the generation of arginine, a substance decreasing the fat cache.
