What are the Health Benefits of Watermelon Seeds?
The health benefits of watermelon seeds are based on the vitamins and minerals present in them. Here are some of the key health benefits of why it’s in Detox Serum.
1. Promotes Hair Growth
Each and every cell stands in need of Vit A for growth. Biotin is the most required vitamin that promotes the hair growth. Biotin is a B vitamin, aka B7. Vitamin C produces a protein named collagen, an integral part of the hair and prevents the aging of it. Iron helps in nourishing the scalp by supplying oxygen to the hair follicles and makes the hair thick and nourished. Magnesium prevents hair loss, breakage and split ends.
Copper produces melanin which is accountable for hair color. Zinc helps in hair growth and repair by assisting hair follicle rehabilitation. Protein maintains hair growth. Deficiencies of these vitamins and minerals are what contributes to issues such as hair loss, thinning, breakage and split ends.
Watermelon seed oil is also a true cleansing oil. It will dissolve sebum build up, which is one of the main reasons it’s the main oil in my Detox Serum.
2. Skin NOURISHMENT
Watermelon seeds have magnesium which improves skin tone like elasticity and maintains moisture. It creates an anti-aging effect by controlling wrinkles because of the presence of enzymes that helps in DNA replication. It plays an important role in reducing acne and skin allergies. Magnesium has detoxifying properties and acts as the skin’s protective barrier. Vit C gives a glow to your skin by brightening it.
Watermelon seeds have omega-3 fatty acids that moisturizes your skin. Regular intake of these seeds boosts up the elasticity of your skin, so don’t spit them out, eat them! The same is true for the application of watermelon seed oil topically for reducing acne. The presence of anti-oxidants in the seeds delays aging. These seeds play the best part in nourishing your skin and maintaining its health.
Don’t forget, you ingest whatever you put on your skin, including your scalp. Nourish it and keep it balanced by feeding it well.
