Summer is the Period for Red Melon

Crack it open and relish the succulence.

This may seem off-topic, but have you ever sampled red melon with a dash of common salt on it? I haven’t tried it myself, but I know an individual who insists on it; he claims it enhances the sweet succulence even more. Red melon is already quite sweet and succulent, so that must create quite the taste experience. Anyway, regarding red melon, it’s summer, and you should indulge.

If there are two advantages to a platter of fresh and delightful red melon slices, it’s its aqueous nature and satiety (which, essentially, are quite similar in this context). Red melons earned their moniker because they are absolutely brimming with fresh, hydrating goodness. Partaking in some red melons can offer your body as much hydration as a glass of water, and we could all benefit from hydrating a bit more. This heightened concentration of water also renders red melon surprisingly satisfying. A few slices of it, and you won’t crave anything else, making it an excellent snack for weight management.

Similar to most fresh produce, red melon is also abundant in antioxidants, which are beneficial for regulating your blood pressure and, as per specific research, shielding your body against cancer. Even if red melon wasn’t packed with antioxidants, that delightful flavor would likely relax you enough to reduce your blood pressure on its own.

The singular downside to red melon unfortunately stems from its sugary taste. While the sweetness of red melon is entirely natural, it originates from a specific variety of naturally-occurring fructose. This particular form of fructose is mostly benign but can provoke certain digestive issues in individuals with intestinal conditions like IBS. If you suffer from such a condition, it might be prudent to limit your intake of red melon.
