You Can’t Afford to Get Sick: Eat a Slice of Watermelon

Watermelon’s sky-high fluid content (it’s as much as 90 percent water) can help hydrate you -- a boon for keeping bugs at bay. “Plus, watermelon contains an antioxidant called glutathione, which enables the immune system to spring into action at the first sign of attack,” says Victoria Shanta-Retelny, registered dietitian and author of The Essential Guide to Healthy Healing Foods. It also contains vitamins A, C, and B6, which are known immune-boosting nutrients. So, the next time you feel a bug coming on, spoon up a daily cup of melon.
