Why You Should Not Throw Away The Watermelon Seeds
Watermelon seeds probably annoy you when you eat watermelon, and you wonder why they have to exist, just as in grapes.
But, watermelon seeds are very useful, and can serve us in many ways.
Maybe you’re afraid that swallowing watermelon seeds acts badly on your body. But don’t worry, a plant won’t grow inside of you and you should really eat the seeds. However, it’s best not to eat them directly from the watermelon, but to let them germinate.
After germination and drying, they become protein, and only 1/8 cup contains the same amount of protein as a Greek yogurt!
They are really healthy. They contain fibers necessary for the operation of the digestive tract, they help in cases of parasites, but also can boast antibiotic properties. They contain citrulline, which is known as an antioxidant that expand blood vessels and has a positive effect in cases of hypertension, angina and atherosclerosis.
You can use the seeds to fight the nasty bacteria Escherichia coli.
You’ll need a liter of hot water and about thirty seeds. In a pot, add the water and the seeds. Allow the water to the boil and leave it for another ten minutes. Remove it from heat and allow it to cool. Strain it and store it in refrigerator. You can drink the water as it is, but if you want a specific flavor, you can freely mix it with a variety of juices.
If you like it, remember that the recipe can work throughout the year.
