Watermelon reduces high blood pressure in people with overweight and can reduce the risk of heart attack, revealed a survey conducted at the University of Florida. Scientists have discovered that watermelon significantly lowers blood pressure in obese people, even when exposed to cold weather.
More people die of heart attacks in cold conditions because their body is more exposed to stress, while trying to stay warm, which leads to increases in blood pressure, the magazine “Daily Mail” reports. It forces the heart to work harder , which means that people are faced with a higher risk of heart attack.
“The pressure on the heart and the aorta is reduced by consumption of an extract of watermelon” concluded experts who conducted a survey on 13 people who had high blood pressure for more than 12 weeks, reports “Daily Mail”.
