#16. Story Time: Water Melon in a new month!!

Hello Moms,

Frozen watermelon juice drink in glasses with straws

Today we’ll talk about watermelon, I am sure a lot of us have access to water melon. Let’s talk about it so we all know what we have been feeding ourselves with.

Watermelon is a great fruit, apart from its water content of about 92%. It aids in the prevention of diabetes, heart disease, kidney disorders, high blood pressure, the prevention of cancer, diabetes, heat stroke, macular degeneration and impotence.

It contains a lot of juice in it and has a high level of vitamins such as vitamins A, B6 and C, lots of lycopene, antioxidants and amino acids. There’s even a modest amount of potassium. Plus, this yummy fruit is fat free, has only 30 calories per serving as well as very low in sodium.

Apart from all these, other health benefits include:

  1. Reduces body fat: it contains an amino acid called Citrulline which reduces the accumulation of fat in human fat cells. this Citrulline (amino acid) converts into arginine.
  2. Cardiovascular & Bone Health: this fruit helps to retain calcium in our bodies and you know calcium is good for our bones
  3. Anti-inflammatory & Antioxidant Support
  4. Diuretic & Kidney Support
  5. Supports our nerves and muscle
  6. Helps improve the health of our eyes
  7. It forms Alkaline: this can reduce your risk of developing disease and illness caused by a high-acid diet (namely, meat, eggs and dairy)
  8. Immune Support,
  9. Wound Healing
  10. Prevents Cell Damage

I am Dr. Christiana Stephen, a wife, a mom of 4 under 4 year old kids, a photo lover, makeup artist, a wellness coach and a lecturer. Motherhood for me is ongoing, its a period of learning and unlearning. I am passionate about a lot of things but most importantly helping mothers around the work reach their wellness goals comes as top priority. Hence, I have created this community for every woman out there. Feel free to be part of this amazing journey of motherhood and wellness. I will say raising this community is inspired by my experience and learning process. The main essence is to empower moms on the benefits of healthy living as well as the need to create a life work balance.
I am nice so a lot of people say and I believe I am very approachable even when there is a lot to be done. I love teaching. I can teach on a lot of things including time and stress management.

    • Hey there, thanks for appreciating what I do. I do have an office in London; that’s where I live. Placing you on diet isn’t impossible cos I am working with a number of people I haven’t met before and they love their weight loss journey.
