How watermelon normalizes pressure



Professors Bahram Arjmandi and Arthur Figueroa of the University of Florida found that daily consumption of 6 grams of the amino acids citrulline (L-citrulline) and arginine (L-arginine) contained in watermelon improves arterial function and, as a result, reduces blood pressure. The experiment was carried out between two groups of volunteers suffering from hypertension, whose average age was 58 years. For six weeks, the first group was given a watermelon extract, and the second was given a placebo. As a result of the experiment, all the participants in the first group decreased their blood pressure.
After L-citrulline enters the body, it is converted to the amino acid L-arginine, which is necessary for the formation of nitric oxide, which is involved in the normalization of blood pressure and regulates the general vascular tone. This solves the problem of those hypertensive patients who cannot use ready-made arginine as a dietary supplement due to problems with the gastrointestinal tract, as it often leads to nausea or diarrhea.
Watermelon does not cause any side effects, and its consumption is accompanied by a pleasant taste.In addition, this berry nourishes the body with potassium, lycopene, vitamins C, A and B6, and is also a powerful antioxidant.
Cardiovascular diseases, strokes and heart attacks are one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Thanks to this discovery, millions of people will be able to prevent early hypertension, reduce high blood pressure, and maintain the elasticity of arteries and blood vessels. The extra intake of L-citrulline in its natural form will also help hypertensive patients to reduce the doses of consumed drugs that control blood pressure. This will especially benefit older people or people with type 2 diabetes.
