Watermelon is listed by the American Heart Association as a top food for cardiovascular health. It is a great go-to food for people who want to lose weight because it is filling, it has no fat, and it is very nutritious. The high water content of watermelon helps hydrate cells and remove waste products.
Watermelon contains potassium and vitamins A, C, and B6, and contains more lycopene than any other fresh fruit or vegetable. Besides being the red pigment that gives the watermelon its bright color, lycopene is an antioxidant proven to prevent certain health challenges.
