One of the best and most refreshing fruits, especially during the hot summer days is definitely the watermelon, but, did you know that it is a very healthy fruit too? The numerous benefits of this fruit come as a result of the presence of L-citruline, an amino acid that soothes muscles after workout.
A Spanish study has shown that the watermelon is excellent against post-workout pain. According to this study, this amino acid is able to accelerate the process of removing the excess lactic acid off the muscles and thus eliminate the soreness and itchiness after workout.
Watermelon contains this amino acid more than any other fruit does, with 150 mg in just 120 g of the fruit. It also contains vitamin A, B6, and C and thus improves the work of the kidneys and the health of the heart. It also normalizes the blood pressure.
The watermelon seeds are great for dissolving kidney stones
You should know that besides the fruit, the seeds of watermelon are also very healthy. The Chinese alternative medicine has used them for a long time now for removing kidney stones, as it contains minerals like magnesium and potassium. Take four watermelon seeds, crush them, and then boiled them in two liters of water for fifteen minutes. Use this water to eliminate kidney stones by drinking it.
The watermelon contains nearly no calories, and it is abundant in water, minerals, vitamins, and natural sugars.
Due to the fact that it contains almost just water, this fruit is great for cleansing and detoxification of the body. It is also rich in beta carotene, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, and C vitamins, as well as calcium, iodine, manganese, potassium, zinc, phosphorus, malic acid, nitric acid, fiber, and a lot more. Watermelon is able to stop inflammation, heart issues, chronic stress, anxiety, and mental problems as well.
Moreover, watermelon is able to prevent anemia, arthritis, asthma, gallbladder issues, high body heat, bladder issues, cellulite, inflammation, kidney stones, acne, atherosclerosis, headaches, cholesterol, and bug bites. Due to the high amounts of water it contains, watermelon is a great diuretic, and it can also help you fight skin issues and burns. Watermelon also regulates the pH of the body, cleanses the blood vessels from excess fat, and thus prevents heart issues and reduces the risk of developing them.
However, in case that you suffer from diabetes or high triglyceride levels, you should be more moderate with this fruit.
The best way to eat this fruit
The best way to eat watermelon is to eat it cold. You can also combine the juice of watermelon with other natural juices and thus get the best of them. You can also add watermelon and watermelon juice to desserts. The watermelon is most delicious and nutritious in summer, which is also the best period to consume this fruit to replenish the nutrients you lose from the heat.
A Nigerian facebook user named Ayinke Adefemi has taken to social media to blast Pastor Adeboye, according to her when the going was good her mother used to donate generously to RCCG and they even used their house for house fellowship but now things are rough for them and they are about to be kicked out of their house for their inability to pay rent RCCG has refused to help them, well read her posts below
She deleted this…
Then posted this
My mum sent me a text this morning , begging me to stop posting about “men of God” I simply asked her if she had gotten a reply to the letter she submitted to her pastor 4 months ago, asking for financial support to pay rent for a new apartment, after her old landlord gave her an eviction notice that expired on the 30th of last month.
Mind you, when the going was good , she started this RCCG branch with them. They automatically made her Good women leader and immediately attached straw to her bank account , asides the tithes and seeds of faith. She even allowed them use our parlor for mid week service for almost 2 years.
She converted my lil sister’s room to store where the church kept all their musical instrument. And she was very resourceful in helping them raise money to buy the land on which the church was situated. Every Christmas and new year , she decorated the church for them free of charge.
During her 50th bday, she repainted the whole church and made a big donation to them.
I can go on for days! Where is the God’s blessing they promised her? Now she has retired from civil service.
Still waiting for her gratuity before she can start business. Common house rent! The church cannot provide.
They haven’t even acknowledged that they have received the letter. I am the one who single handedly shouldered the whole expenses.
I am the one out here exposing their f*uckery. Yet I am the devil .
She holds a very strong position in this APWECON , but she doesn’t want to speak against a father in the lord that is targeting that profession, My people , Una see say this jazz wey they pastors dey do strong gan?
SCAM IN THE NAME OF GOD: SOW IN DOLLARS FOR GOD TO BLESS YOU RICHLY IN DOLLARS.- PASTOR E.A ADEBOYE
Like most of you, I was in disbelief when I first read the quote above. I decided to verify it by purchasing the copy of Open Heavens from which the quote was taken (fully referenced below).
1). If you want returns in Dollars, sow in Dollars. Do not sow in Naira and be expecting a harvest in Euro. It does not work like that.
2). It is the particular denomination that you use that God will multiply and return to you.
3). Do yourself a favor by using the biggest denominations so as to get the greatest harvest.
