Watermelons A Super Food?

A study aimed to investigate the effects of consuming wild watermelon juice on arterial stiffness and nitric oxide production in healthy young female participants.

The study was conducted in a randomized, double-blind crossover design, with participants receiving either a beverage containing 90g of wild watermelon extract or a placebo control beverage.

The researchers measured pulse wave velocity (PWV), an indicator of arterial stiffness, blood flow, and plasma nitrate/nitrite levels at 30, 60, and 90 minutes after the participants consumed the beverages.

The results showed that consuming the wild watermelon juice significantly reduced arterial stiffness in the lower limbs and increased nitric oxide production compared to the placebo.
