Watermelon is a favorite summer treat! You can cube it, slice it or eat it in a bowl! Did you ever hear that swallowing a watermelon seed would cause a watermelon to grow in your stomach?! How many seeds we have thrown out over the years is mind boggling. Healthy Food House claims that there are many health benefits from eating those watermelon seeds.
It turns out watermelon seeds that have been boiled, ground, or roasted are good for your digestive system. The seeds contain fiber, which fights inflammation and improves digestion. The seeds are a natural diuretic and help with kidney stones and urinary problems.
Watermelon seeds also contain a citrulline compound that has antioxidant properties (antioxidants may delay or prevent certain types of cell damage).
