It also contains a lot of water which hydrates the body and replenishes the body electrolytes, which are responsible for maintaining the balance of essential minerals in the body and for enabling normal functioning of the body. Additionally, watermelon is a great source of fiber, which is an important component of a healthy digestive tract.
