Watch This Before You Take Another Bite Of Watermelon

  • Published on:  Saturday, July 27, 2019
  • Because it's so delicious, we have to wonder if watermelon could possibly be good for you. After all, it does seem like most things we love are terrible for us, so is watermelon one of those things? We're going to find out.

    One of the best things about watermelon is its high water content of 92 percent, which makes it a great alternative to plain water. And, unlike many citrusy sports drinks, watermelon is not very acidic so drinking the juice isn't likely to cause acid reflux or other stomach-irritating reactions. It also contains B vitamins to boost your energy levels and electrolytes to replenish nutrients lost as you sweat. Talk about a tasty way to prevent heat stroke this summer!

    Watermelon also contains a type of amino acid known as citrulline, which works wonders on sore muscles and has been linked to improving blood flow and keeping your heart healthy. If that's what you're interested in, you should know: the white flesh near the rind actually contains more citrulline than the pink bits.

    Studies have shown that athletes who drink watermelon juice before intense workouts have quicker recovery heart rates and fewer sore muscles the next day. Drinking watermelon juice may also increase overall athletic performance. When your body process citrulline, it turns into another amino acid called arginine. While arginine has many functions, it primarily rids the body of excess ammonia. Since exercising releases ammonia into the bloodstream, having higher levels of this amino acid can significantly reduce muscle fatigue and exhaustion.

    173 grams of potassium?
    Only 5% of the suggested daily
    intake? that 3.5 kilos. Over 7

    A cup measure only holds
    about 230 grams.

    Watermelon is 3/4 potassium?

    At that amount, potassium would
    EXPLODE, when near water.

    Sorry Raptor, but the err is yours Reaper, l am a perfect example of a person that believes what he says to the point of Not knowingly commiting Sin, the strength comes from knowing that l am going to live Eternally, l live for my God(Jesus')Father and mine also that is why l say the living God Almighty Creator,
    As for Sin and why people Sin, lt is because they are only alway thinking of there miserable existence in a world of Sinners, the body and the possesions you have will Rot when you return to the dust you were created from, or do you think that you can take it with
    you!!!***,that is your Err, Even a hurst will Rot after it does the Funeral,!!!****
