What are the health benefits of watermelon rind?

A Answers (1)

  • A Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease), answered
    Juicy watermelon rinds offer a high dose of cirulline amino acid, which helps dilate blood vessels, improving blood circulation. The easiest way to take advantage of watermelon rind health benefits is to blend a whole piece of watermelon with lime. If you’re in the mood for something with a little kick, add some gin or vodka to make it a heart-healthy cocktail.
