Watermelon is packed with nutrients. It has high levels of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that is found in fruits and vegetables that are red in color. Lycopene is thought to reduce risk of heart disease and cancer. Watermelon also contains the amino acid citrulline which promotes good cardiovascular health and blood flow. Plus, watermelon is great for hydration since is 92% water and packed with electrolytes!
