Talking about watermelon, we can distinguish two kinds of people -- those who accept the fact that are seeds inside, and those who cannot accept this, and before cooling off with a slice take the time to eliminate every single seed.

For them, it will be bad news to know that they are actually discarding the most nutritious part of the fruit. Watermelon seeds have in fact extremely beneficial properties for different parts of our body.

After reading this article you will look at them in a completely different way!

I love summer and I crave watermelon!

With summer approaching, watermelon is one of the main fruits that is served at the end of each meal, but remember. . . do not throw away the seeds!

Useful for digestion . . .

. . . and for the circulation of blood, for the heart, and for the brain!

Watermelon seeds also contain the amino acid citrulline, a powerful antioxidant that helps to enlarge blood vessels for better blood circulation and proper oxygenation of the heart and brain.

Enjoy a delicious tea . . . made with watermelon seeds!

You can consume watermelon seeds not by chewing them while eating a nice slice of watermelon, but by preparing a delicious tea! Simply mix 4 teaspoons of seeds with 2 liters of water and simmer on low heat for about 15 minutes. Once cooled, you can add ice cubes and enjoy nice chilled watermelon seed tea! 

Prefer a smoothie? Here's how to prepare it!

Alternatively, you can opt for a smoothie. It is simple to prepare, and you will need only a few minutes more than the tea! Take a handful of seeds and place them on a piece of parchment paper. Warm them up in the oven until they emanate a sweet aroma but are still not completely dry.

Now crush them until you obtain the consistency of flour and then add them to fresh milk at room temperature in a ratio of 1:10. This will give you a tasty and highly digestible smoothie that will help you if you have kidney problems because watermelon is an excellent diuretic and the seeds also assist in the smooth functioning of the kidneys.

In the video, you can even discover that in some countries they are sold as a snack, just like pumpkin seeds.

Therefore, the next time you eat a slice of watermelon, do not throw away the seeds, but reuse them as directed! You will not regret it!
