It’s incredibly simple and delicious! Watermelon is 85-90% water, perfectly quenching thirst. In hot summer, it is simply irreplaceable, and it is ideal for preparing a soft drink. Unlike the same soda and many fruit juices, watermelon does not contain hard-to-digest sugars that require insulin production, which means that even diabetics can use it (but in moderation!). Also, watermelon contains mineral salts, thereby maintaining a normal water-salt balance in the body without harming your kidneys. Watermelon is a source of antioxidants such as ascorbic acid, carotene, niacin, thiamine, and riboflavin. All these substances prolong the life of our body and protect it from age-related damage, and some of them also have an anti-cancer effect, and carotene, for example, strengthens vision. It is important to know that watermelon contains invaluable folic acid (vitamin B9), without which the human body is unable to function normally. Folacin is essential for building DNA and RNA, participates in cell division and regulates the absorption and processing of proteins. The lack of folic acid affects the appearance. Without it, it is impossible to achieve a healthy skin color. The acid improves digestion and helps new mothers by increasing the production of breast milk. Especially for pregnant women, folic acid is required, since the lack of an element negatively affects the formation of the nervous system of the fetus. In addition, a malfunction in DNA reproduction potentially increases the risk of developing cancerous tumors. Watermelon is rich in magnesium. 100 grams contains 60% of the daily value of a trace element. Magnesium ensures the absorption of other nutrients, including vitamins and minerals – calcium, sodium, potassium, etc. It also helps muscles and nerves function. With a lack of magnesium, frequent cramps, tingling sensations, weakness and severe fatigue are observed. A permanent magnesium deficiency can affect the heart: disturbances in nerve conduction in combination with poor vascular tone can lead to arrhythmias and significantly increase the likelihood of a heart attack. The element prevents the formation of kidney stones and reduces the deposition of salts in the body. Watermelon is considered an excellent antidepressant due to its vitamin and mineral composition. Thus, a good mood with our watermelon smoothie is guaranteed!
