South Korean fruit has proven to be a powerful longevity booster

This refers to Korean melon, an excellent source of vitamin K and calcium, which are essential for healthy bones. In addition, the fruit helps control blood pressure and cholesterol, which are believed to be major contributors to cardiovascular disease.

According to the researchers, it's all about the potassium found in the fruit. It is known that this substance fights hypertension by removing excess salt from the blood. Besides, it reduces pressure in the blood vessels improving blood flow and stress on the heart.

Korean melon is also a good source of vitamins A, E and C. Thanks to them, the fruit has anti-cancer properties. In particular, it has been found that it protects against breast and intestinal tumors. As the scientists explained, vitamin C enhances the immune system's ability to rid itself of unwanted cells that end up being cancerous, while vitamins A and E prevent oxidative stress by working with beta-carotene, vitamin C and folic acid. This process creates a protective effect against the development of cancerous tumors.

Besides, melon is exceptionally rich in dietary fiber, both soluble and insoluble. It is no secret that fiber helps the digestion process by improving stomach and intestinal function.
