To balance the fluid balance in the body again, melons are good thirst quenchers.

(07/18/2010) All of Germany is sweating and every refreshment is welcome. Melons are a special tip in the summer heat. They are very suitable as thirst quenchers and reduce the risk of dehydration.

Melons are refreshing, especially now with the summer temperatures and with great thirst. But what many do not know, the melon is not a fruit, but actually a pumpkin and thus vegetables. There are a total of 150 types of watermelon and even 500 types of sugar melon. Watermelons have a green skin and contain yellow, red or dark red pulp. Most watermelons contain black seeds, some varieties more and others less. The pulp of the melon has a very high proportion of water. Around 95 percent of the fruit consists of water.

This makes the watermelon very suitable as a snack and at the same time as a thirst quencher. The fruit contains valuable minerals, as well as vitamins A and C, and the red colorant, which is one of the antioxidants. Antioxidants have a reputation for being “radical scavengers”. They thus protect against damage to the cell membranes and protect against diseases such as arteriosclerosis or cancer. In addition, consuming watermelons reduces the risk of dehydration during the hot days. If the body is not supplied with sufficient fluid, cardiovascular problems, headaches and dizziness can arise. It is therefore important to drink enough water in addition to eating melons to prevent internal dehydration. (sb)
