The water, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals in Rock Melon can provide a variety of health benefits.
Antioxidants, for example, can help prevent cell damage that can lead to cancer and other health conditions.
During metabolism, the body produces unstable molecules called free radicals, which can collect in the body and damage cells. This damage is known as oxidative stress. Antioxidants help remove free radicals from the body and prevent oxidative stress.
Canteloupe contains a range of antioxidants, including:
- vitamin C
- beta carotene
It is worth noting that, while the nutrients in food are essential for maintaining a healthy body, scientific investigations into the effects of these nutrients often deal with supplements, rather than dietary sources, and the results may be somewhat different.
