Don’t be fooled by the name of these melons because despite their high water content, they are also full of nutrients! Did you know that watermelon contains about one and a half times more lycopene than tomatoes? Surprising, right? Lycopene is the reddish carotenoid pigment that has anti-inflammatory, detoxification and blood sugar balancing capabilities. Watermelon not only has a significant amount of antioxidants, but also amino acids, vitamin A, B6 and vitamin C.
