Watermelon: An Answer to Your Muscle Pain

It’s true… After a long intense workout at the gym, you no longer need to suffer through the dreadful pain of your muscles calling out to you for help. Watermelon is a natural and cheap way to avoid feeling sore pain in your muscles. Watermelon contains a little over one gram of l-citrulline, an amino acid that seems to protect against muscle pain.

Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS), experienced one to two days after exercise, is actually caused by inflammation caused through microscopic tears in your muscle fibers and your surrounding tissue. These tears are what cause inflammation, which awakens your pain receptors. Watermelon helps relieve muscle soreness because of its anti-inflammatory properties.

So next time you want to workout and worried about the next day… Consider this alternative!

Depression: risk in the womb

Studies have shown that depression starts at birth. It seems that an adolescent is more likely to suffer depression if the mother was depressed while pregnant. The child is 1.3 times more likely to go through depression at adolescence if the mother was depressed while pregnant with him or her.

Doctors therefore advise women to get treated before getting pregnant or if diagnosed after pregnant, to get treated as it is healthier for the child and the mother.

So if you find yourself depressed, get treated before and while pregnant because you are not only harming yourself your child’s future.
