Many people like to eat watermelon, the reason is more about its taste and its nutritional ingredients. Eating watermelon often has a lot of benefits for the body.

Eating watermelon can supplement sufficient water for the body. A large amount of water intake can enhance the body's metabolism.

In particular, it can enhance the metabolism of the intestinal tract, which can promote defecation, and prevent intestinal problems such as constipation, and colon cancer.

In addition, it also helps to prevent the various drying phenomena of the body eating fruits.

Watermelon is rich in nutrients such as vitamin C, and the mineral potassium. We can often supplement these nutrients appropriately, so as to prevent the lack of various nutrients.

Although eating watermelon can bring us many benefits, we cannot use it instead as a staple food.

The protein content in watermelon is very low. If we often treat watermelon as a staple food, it will cause muscle loss, malnutrition, and a decline in metabolic rates. In the long run, the lipid rate may rise, and we will easily gain weight. At the same time, there will also be problems such as loss of appetite and weakness.

Because the taste of watermelon is very sweet, many people think that the sugar content of watermelon is high.

In fact, most of the watermelon (at least 90%) is water, the sugar content is not high, and the calories are relatively low. The calories per 100 grams of watermelon are only about 30 kcal, which is similar to strawberries.

A 3 kg of watermelon, cut out 1/4, calculate it according to 0.5 kg of flesh. Its calories are about 150 kcal, which is almost half a bowl of rice.

Patients with diabetes can eat watermelon, but it should be eaten in small amounts. The blood glucose index of watermelon is as high as 72, which is the highest gear in fruits.

This may be because watermelon is prone to juice. After the sugar is squeezed out of the cell structure, it is easily absorbed and utilized by the human body. Unlike fruits such as apples, sugar exists in the cell structure and is slowly released by chewing.

In the hot summer, many people like to eat ice watermelon to quench their thirst. However, the cold ice watermelon may stimulate the esophagus and cause damage to the esophagus or gastric mucosa.

Some experts suggest that it is best to be placed at room temperature for a period of time before eating.

Eating too much watermelon will hurt the stomach mucosa. Regular cold stimulation can also shrink the gastric mucosa blood vessels, reduce gastric secretion, and cause decreased appetite and indigestion. Over time, we may have stomach problems.

After the watermelon is refrigerated for too long, the surface of the watermelon will form a thin film, and the cold gas in the refrigerator will be absorbed by the melon.

If we eat a lot of frozen watermelons, the saliva glands and periodontal nerves of the oral cavity will be paralyzed due to cold stimulation. This is not only difficult to taste the sweetness of watermelon but also hurts the spleen and stomach, causing pharyngitis.
