Watermelon is considered a nutrient dense food, a food that provides a high amount of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants for a low amount of calories.  Enjoy seedless watermelon in everything from beverages to sandwiches to salsas.  Watermelon is also great for carving, and can be made into an entertaining display. At 92% water, watermelon is the ideal workout buddy for rehydrating, refueling and recovering.  A 2-cup serving of watermelon is a source of potassium, which may help with avoiding muscle cramps, as well as citrulline and electrolytes.  The amino acid citrulline can help maintain blood flow within the heart and cardiovascular function. The antioxidants found in watermelon may also aid in recovery after exercise.  Watermelon is a primary source of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant. This is just one of the reasons why it has been studied to identify its role in health promotion and disease prevention.
