Watermelon, also named as “summer melon”, is the king of melons. It is juicy, sweet, cool and thirst-quenching, very suitable for eating in summer. It doesn’t contain any fat and cholesterol. What’s more, it is rich in glucose, malic acid, fructose, proteinogenic amino acid, tomatin and vitamin C. Thus, it is a nutritive, clean fruit, safe to eat.

Its nutritive value:
First, it can clear away the heat and quench the thirst. As it contains much water, a juicy and sweet piece can ease someone’s thirst and irritation when he suffers from a fever.

Second, the sugar in it can eliminate the kidney inflammation, and protease can turn insoluble proteins into soluble proteins, and thus provides nutrition to people who have kidney inflammation.

Third, it contains some substance that reduces the blood pressure.

Fourth, it can increase the urine and thus, decrease bile pigment, helping treat jaundice.

Fifth, fresh watermelon juice and peel can make the skin smooth and shiny.

It can be made into toning lotion. Fresh watermelon juice and peel can make the skin smooth and shiny. Smash it in a bowel and filter the juice which is natural toning lotion. Wear it before the make- up, and you will have a better complexion. Put the rest watermelon juice in the fridge and it is not going to be bad in three days.

It beautifies the hair. Eat watermelons often, and you can have dense, great hair. People who dye the hair frequently can eat more.

But there are also some people who are not suitable to eat watermelons. First, people who have high blood pressure, kidney inflammation and cholecystitis should not eat too much. Second, people who suffer from diabetes and some stomach disease should not eat too much.
