Day 97- Nutrition Bite

Watermelon is a great substitute for refined sugars or chemical sweeteners. Watermelon has a cool thermal nature and sweet flavor. It also influences the heart, bladder, and stomach; builds body fluids; acts as a diuretic; and moistens the intestines. Watermelon is used to treat thirst, urinary problems, edema, canker sores, depression, and kidneys and urinary tract inflammations such as nephritis and urethritis. The rind is rich in silicon and the outer green skin is rich in chlorophyll. The seeds benefit the kidneys and act as a general diuretic.
