I am sure everyone has been seeing loads and loads of watermelons at the stores lately, and as much as people love them- many believe that all watermelon contains is water and sugar.  But that is not true, it has more health benefits than you think, and it makes the perfect snack, dessert, or juice!

High in lycopene- super antioxidant found in most red fruits and vegetables, it helps with the immune system and can help fight heart disease and certain cancers.

It contains natural substance called citrulline- which can help lower blood pressure and improve artery functions. It can also help relieve muscle soreness after a workout- Drink it as a juice before or after to help!

Packed with water- helps with dehydration.  Ever get a bad headache or feel very tired? It could be due to dehydration.  Snack on some watermelon and load up on the water your body needs!

Can help with impotence due to the Arginine, which is found in watermelon- it is beneficial in curing erectile dysfunction, and the stimulating nature of the chemical can boost libido, reduce frigidity and give a kick start to your love life- so eat some after dinner with your significant other and get it on!

There are many more benefits of eating or drinking watermelon- so pick one up today and enjoy it, by yourself or with a loved one!

**Tip- the heavier they are, the more water there is- which is something to look for when picking out a watermelon!
