Lower Your Blood Pressure ... With Watermelon!


As we go through the heat of late August, nothing says summertime like cool, sweet watermelon.  They’re more than 90% water, but they also pack a powerful nutritional punch.


Just one cup of watermelon provides 170 milligrams of potassium.  And potassium is essential for anyone trying to keep their blood pressure under control.


Look for a watermelon that’s firm and dense and feels heavy for its size.  And don’t worry about that yellow spot — that’s where it was sitting on the ground as it grew.  Chill your watermelon first thing in the morning, and in just a few hours you’ll have a delicious, refreshing, afternoon treat!
