Health Benefits of Watermelon Seeds
1) Protein Powerhouse: A 1.1 ounce serving of watermelon seeds provides five grams of protein. Watermelon seeds are a great way to help you meet your daily protein requirements. The protein found in this snack offers several amino acids: the building blocks of protein.
2) High in Fiber: Watermelon seeds are a plentiful source of both soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber helps lower LDL “bad” cholesterol levels and regulate blood sugar, while insoluble fiber supports a healthy digestive system.
