West Palm Beach Chiropractic Nutrition Tip: Enjoy Some Melon!

Melons Tasty and nutritious. Moses Chiropractic takes care of back pain and neck pain and all types of spine-related pain and knows nutrition is vital in healing and sustained health. Moses Chiropractic promotes healthy eating, and fruits deliver superior nutrition benefits. Forward thinking researchers are even trying novel ways to grow healthy melons enough to keep us all fed! West Palm Beach chiropractic services clients will see this research is very intriguing!

BENEFITS OF MELONS

Every piece of a melon - peels, seeds, and bioactive compounds – supplied health benefits in a new study. A specific melon from Honduras – the Galia variety – piqued researchers’ attention for its antioxidative, anticholesterol, antidiabetic, antibiotic (against pathogenic bacteria, protozoa, viruses), properties and stimulation of thyroid function. (1) Agricultural researchers utilized gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis to review the phytocompounds of Honeydew melon (Cucumis melo L.) extracts. They uncovered 37 compounds in whole fruit and 14 in seed extract. (2) Growing healthful melons contributes to healthy humans!

A NEW MELON COMBINES BEST OF TWO MELONS

Something most of us don’t consider is that cantalopes (“netted muskmelons”) are reported to be prone to surface contamination. What did researchers do to try to tamp down this issue? They created a hybrid by crossing them with honeydew (“non-netted muskmelons”) to create an orange-fleshed honeydew melon fruit! This new fruit “Cucumis melo L.” is reported to be good sources of many human-healthy nutrients. The researchers studied and explained extensively just where the nutrients are in each level of the fruit tissues! (3) Interesting what gets a person excited, is it not?

FUTURE OF MELONS’ NUTRITION

Another interesting side note discovered in collecting research about the nutritional value of melons is about growing melons (specifically the “carosello leccese” version of Curcumis melo L.) in a soilless, greenhouse environment with LEDs as supplementary light. This method didn’t negatively affect the nutritional value. The bioactive compounds for human health were still present including methyl gallate (antioxidative and antiviral), α-tocopherol, and β-carotene. (4) Interesting what today’s investigators are attempting as our world population grows to 9.9 billion by 2050 to keep us fed and healthy!
