Watermelon seeds contain a large range of nutrients including calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron and potassium making them an underrated nutrition powerhouse! They contain protein to help build and maintain muscle, polyunsaturated fats to support heart and brain health, as well as antioxidants to help fight free radical damage.
