WATERMELON REDUCES HARDENING OF ARTERIES

Posted by Elizebath Bijoy Saturday, February 11, 2012

Washington: Watermelon is good in the case of atherosclerosis or hardening of arteries.

The model used for a study involved mice with diet-induced high cholesterol. One group was just given water to drink while the experimental group was given watermelon juice. 

By week eight of the study conducted by the University of Kentucky, mice given watermelon juice had lower body weight than the other group due to decrease of fat mass, according to a varsity statement. 

Atherosclerosis occurs when fat, cholesterol and other substances build up in the walls of arteries and form hard structures called plaques. They experienced no decrease in lean mass. 

"Melons have many health benefits," said lead investigator Sibu Saha from Kentucky University. "Our ultimate goal is to identify bioactive compounds that would improve human health."
