  • Watermelons contain two interesting nutrients which are found especially abundantly in the edible rind, citrulline and arginine.
  • Citrulline has been shown to boost heart health, the immune system and help with weight loss and type 2 diabetes.
  • Arginine boosts nitric oxide in the body which helps relax blood vessels and can treat and prevent erectile dysfunction.
  • Some say watermelon is nature’s answer to Viagra.
  • Arginine also removes toxins from the body.
