This Berry Watermelon Fruit Salad’s amazing ingredients

Super Hydrating Watermelon

First is watermelon. Known for its hydrating effects; it has a very high water and fiber content and is very low in calories. Whenever you are eating a watermelon, you are consuming more food in volume without as many calories. Moreover, the melon’s flesh is loaded with Vitamin C, A, B1, B5, and B6, which makes it great for skin, hair, muscle, heart, and cellular health.

In addition, the lycopene present in the watermelon is proven to help prevent or beat cancer, and Cucurbitacin E in the watermelon is a plant-based antioxidant that helps reduce inflammation.[1].
