Chew That Watermelon Seed. by dgitrader(m): 1:22pm On Sep 11, 2014
While the sweet and juicy watermelon is full of nutrition, did you know that the seeds of this fruit are also beneficial?

A rich source of iron, potassium, and vitamins, these seeds are great for your health, skin and hair. So, chew on the watermelon seeds or use their oil, the next time you gorge on this fruit.

Good for your heart:
A rich source of magnesium, the seeds help in maintaining normal heart functioning, blood pressure and support metabolic processes. They can also treat cardiovascular diseases and hypertension.
Control diabetes:
Boiling a handful of watermelon seeds in water and drinking this liquid every day like tea is said to control your blood sugar levels.
Moisturise skin:
Containing unsaturated fatty acids, the seeds help keeping your skin moisturised.
Delay ageing:
Due to their antioxidant properties, eating these seeds can make your skin look younger and healthier.
Clear acne:
Take a swab of cotton and apply watermelon seed oil on your face to remove the dirt and sebum from your skin as well as clean the pores. Suitable for all skin types, this oil also helps treat skin infections.
Strengthen your hair
: Due to a high content of protein and essential amino acids, eating watermelon seeds can strengthen your hair. Also, having roasted watermelon seeds can add shine to your hair as they contain copper that produces melanin, a pigmenvt that provides colour to your hair.
Treat itchy scalp:
Since watermelon seed oil is light in texture, it gets absorbed easily without clogging the pores of your scalp. It acts as a moisturiser for your dry and flaky scalp.
Prevent hair breakage:
Providing your hair with essential fatty acids, consuming the seeds regularly can help prevent breakage

Now we know. Lets eat right and stay healthy. wink
