Watermelon is composed of more than 90% water. “As the name implies, watermelon can keep you hydrated,” Derocha explains.

Watermelon contains a high water content and a small amount of fiber. “Both are key to keeping digestion moving smoothly,” Meyer-Jax says.

“The water and vitamins A, B6, and C in watermelon help your skin stay soft, smooth, and supple,” Derocha says.

When eating fresh watermelon, most people stick to the red or pink flesh. But you can eat the rind and seeds, too, as they offer their own holistic health benefits.
