Paleo Health Benefits of watermelon

Hello Gorgeous

The vibrant, pinky-red hues against the pale green and white skin, bejewelled with edgy, black seeds is, in my opinion, the best-looking fruit around and if there was an award for best dressed/best colour scheme; it would win hands down. Aside from looks, the delicious and unique texture, thirst-quenching like no other, bursting with flavour, and sweet smelling juice holds some of the most precious qualities, making this guy one of the most wonderful in the world.

Watermelon is originally from Southern Africa and grows on rambling vines similar to it’s othercucurbiteae cousins – the squash, cucumber, courgette, and pumpkin family – all fat and seedy yet all of which hold the key to gorgeous skin; from collagen support and skin renewal to repair and UV protection due to it’s abundance of the vitamins A, B6, and C, as well as lycopene.


Lycopene is most commonly associated with tomatoes where it has a significantly high concentration but it is only released when cooked, making it harder to access for research purposes compared with watermelon which provides plenty in its raw form.
