Couscous Salad With water Melon


The Fruit i’m going to share with you is very interesting to read and learn about what i’m going to share with you is a fruit called “Watermelon”
Health scientists are becoming more and more interested in the citruline content of watermelon.Citruline is an amino acid that is commonly converted by our kidneys and other organ systems into arginine ( another amino acid). The flesh of a watermelon contains about 250 milligrams of citruline per cup. When our body absorbs this citruline, one of the steps it can take is conversion of citruline into arginine.
Particularly if a person’s body is not making enough arginine, higher levels of arginine can help improve blood flow and other aspects of our cardiovascular health.
There’s also some preliminary evidence from animal studies that greater conversion of citruline into arginine may help prevent excess accumulation of fat cells due to blocked activity of an enzyme called tissue-nonspecific alkaline phosphatase, or TNAP.
in a recent study , food scientists compared the nutrient content of flesh from different parts of a watermelon : flesh from the center, the stem end, the blossom end (opposite from the stem); and the periphery (the part nearest to the rind). What they’ve discovered were impressive concentrations of phenolic antioxidants, flavonoids, lycopene, and vitamin C in all of these different areas. the exact distribution of nutrients was also highly dependent on the variety of watermelon.
What can watermelons do for muscles?
A report in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry last fall says that watermelon juice can help relieve post-exercise muscle soreness. an amino acid called L-citruline is responsible. This compound is found in unpasteurised, natural watermelon juice. After a workout, put some chunks of watermelon in a juicer and extract the juice , then enjoy it while you get some muscle soreness relief. You can have watermelon itself after any workout.
