Watermelon is an excellent source of the vitamins C and A, especially by the concentration of beta-carotene in the fruit. Pink watermelon contains more lycopene. These powerful antioxidants neutralize free radicals (these are substances that can cause major damages to the body). They are able to make cholesterol stickier so it can hold on much easier to blood vessels, which increases the risk of a stroke and a heart attack. Vitamin C and beta-carotene, however, are very good at removing these harmful molecules and preventing the damage that would be caused. A bowl of watermelon provides 24.3% of the daily dose of vitamin C and 11.1% of the quantities of vitamin A.
