Lower Blood Pressure

Want to eat your way to lower blood pressure?  According to an article on you can increase your circulation and lower your blood pressure simply by eating watermelon. If that isn't a sweet tip, I don't know what is!

Also, store the watermelon at room temperature until you are just about to cut into it. (Chill it for a few minutes before serving if you like it cold.) You'll maximize its nutritional value by allowing it to ripen on the counter.

How do you like to enjoy watermelon?

  1. But in the south, people ruin the health benefit by adding salt!

    Coosaw Farm is a local farm and produces great watermelons. I think even Bi-Lo in Greenville sells watermelons from there; check the sticker.
