Watermelon Juice Can Help Prevent Aching Muscles?

Posted By: Dr. Gary Bellman on August 23, 2013

If you’ve ever taken up a high-intensity workout, then you’re probably familiar with the achy muscles that accompany them.  Researchers in Spain published a study in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry that examined the potential benefits of  drinking watermelon juice for sore muscle relief in athletes.
Why watermelon?  Watermelon has high levels of an uncommon amino acid, L-citrulline, that’s otherwise almost absent in natural foods.

This essential amino acid has antioxidant properties as well as the ability to generate nitric oxide, which plays a key role in heart health and improves athletic performance.  According to the author of the study, naturally high levels of L-citrulline makes watermelon juice an excellent option for athletes who want to improve their sports performance.

L-Citrulline also speeds up removal of lactic acid, allowing for more intense training with faster recovery after each workout.  Moreover, the citrulline content in watermelons has been shown to lower blood pressure and help with sexual dysfunction for males.
