3 Super-Healing Summer Melons

Cantaloupe for Healthy Eyes

The orange color gives away some of this fruit’s healing ability. One cup of cantaloupe contains enough beta-carotene to provide your full daily intake of vitamin A. Beta-carotene converts into vitamin A which is proven to reduce the risk of cataracts by 50 percent.  Cantaloupe also contains enough antioxidants to reduce the risk of macular degeneration.

Honeydew for a Dewy Complexion

Honeydew melon (the green-fleshed one) is a natural source of the mineral copper, which assists in skin repair and skin cell regeneration. Additionally, this melon is rich in vitamin C which helps boost collagen levels. Collagen tends to become depleted as we age, causing wrinkling. Eating more honeydew melon may help prevent small lines and wrinkles.

Watermelon for a Healthy Prostate and Liver

Tomatoes aren’t the only food that contains high amounts of the phytonutrient lycopene. So does watermelon. Lycopene is known for its prostate protecting, anti-aging, and disease-thwarting powers.  Watermelon contains the important nutrient glutathione that helps to detoxify the liver. Water is also showing promise as an alternative to Viagra for erectile dysfunction. Keep an eye out for my upcoming article “The Fruit that Works like Viagra” for more information.
