Watermelon is a flowering plant species of the Cucurbitaceae family and the name means it’s an edible fruit. A scrambling and trailing vine-like plant, it is a fruit that one can cultivate highly worldwide. This article discusses the watermelon fruit.

Is it Okay to eat watermelon daily? 

One can eat this in reasonable amounts because watermelons produce no serious side effects. 

If you eat an abundance of this fruit daily, you may experience problems from having too much lycopene or potassium.

Benefits of watermelon: 

  • Muscle soreness.
  • Reduces kidney disorders.
  • Hydrates your body.
  • Help prevent cancer.
  • Help prevent asthma.
  • Lowers blood pressure.
  • Good for your heart.
  • Improves digestion.

Side effects: 

Watermelon is a splendid source of dietary fiber and water.

But, if you eat too much watermelon, it can cause the following:

  • bloating
  • gas
  • flatulence
  • diarrhea
  • and other such stomach troubles.

This is majorly due to the presence of sorbitol, which is a sugar compound, and lycopene, which gives the fruit its bright red color.

Facts: 

Watermelons are the iconic summer fruit. They may seem like a treat, but they’re low in sugar.

A whole cup of diced up watermelon has under 10 grams of sugar. A bonus of eating watermelon is it’s also a great source of iron.

Watermelon is slightly acidic and if consumed at night.

This is because, it may delay the process of digestion when the body is inactive.

The best time to eat watermelon is around 10 – 12 or 12-1 pm when the digestion rate is high and active.

You can also have it as an evening snack, before 5 pm. Do not consume it at night or with your meals.

Suggested: 

According to health experts and nutritionists, you can eat anywhere between 100 to 150 grams of this fruit in a day.

Also, a contrary point: 

There are plenty of options when it comes to finding fruit that is both healthy and helps induce the right amount of sleep.

Since watermelons are around 80% water, they’re a great hydrating snack that’s still delicious to eat right before it’s time to sleep.
