How Much Water Is In Watermelon?

Have you been browsing the produce aisle at your local grocery store recently? You’ve probably seen an abundance of a popular sweet fruit. Watermelon!

During the hot summer months, watermelon is a fruity, cool and refreshing treat. Most people enjoy watermelon because it’s sweet and super easy to eat. But it’s also hydrating!

There’s no wonder how a watermelon got its name because it’s packed full of water. So full that it is made up of almost 92 percent water. That makes it a delicious and refreshing snack. But it’s also a great way to help hydrate you on the hottest summer days.

Watermelon is mostly water with about six grams of sugar. It’s a healthy snack option and has many health benefits.

Health Benefits of Watermelon

You already learned that watermelon is super juicy because it’s full of water. This is part of what makes it even more filling as a snack! And at about 46 calories per cup of watermelon, it’s a much better option than processed foods and sweets. But #DidYouKnow about all the other health benefits of watermelons?

Like other fruits and vegetables, watermelon has a moderate amount of fiber. This makes it good for your digestive system. This is important because the body needs fiber to properly move and get rid of waste and other toxins. It’s also a good source of vitamins and minerals. It helps you get your daily needed amounts of vitamins A, C, B1, B5 and B6.

Watermelon is full of antioxidants. It contains beta carotene and lycopene. Antioxidants are known for all of the good things it can do for our bodies, and they also reduce the risk of cancers. Watermelon has some of the highest levels of lycopene. This phytonutrient also gives watermelon its red color.

When the temperature is warmer outside, our bodies need more water. Water helps keep our internal systems regulated and working well. And if you’re sweating a lot, you need more than just water. You also need essential nutrients known as electrolytes. Watermelon has calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium. These electrolytes help us retain water and keep blood pressure regulated.

So by now we know watermelon is good for hydrating the body because of its high water content. But it also contains essential electrolytes. This makes it a great option for rehydrating after a long day outdoors on hot days. It also makes a wonderful post-workout snack for refueling the body. And watermelon juice can help relieve muscle soreness.

FUN FACT! You don’t have to just eat watermelon’s fruit. Watermelon seeds are also full of vitamins and nutrients. And watermelon rinds are often used for cooking in China.
