Health Benefits of Watermelon Seeds

As a kid I can remember sitting with my dog eating watermelon and spitting out the seeds. At that time I did not know that Watermelon Seeds were so good for you. Watermelon seeds contain lots of different proteins including arginine, lysine, and tryptophan. Watermelon Seeds also help prevent coronary artery disease and they contain a whole spectrum of B Vitamins which help give you energy and keep your body fit and full of vigor. Watermelon Seeds contain lots of minerals too — phosphorous, some sodium, small amount of iron, zinc, potassium, copper, and manganese. And Watermelon Seeds can help lower your blood pressure too, and they are full of Omega 6 fatty acids helping to lower your cholesterol. And they contain beta-carotene and lutein which keep your eyes and body healthy. So next time you have watermelon save the seeds and roast them like sunflower seeds-they taste great!
