Melon may be a good food after exercise, too. After intense physical activity, it is normal for the muscles to suffer or even to have minor injuries to the operation, especially when they are just starting. Melon may help heal sore muscles and ensure speedy wound healing. The L-citrulline in the watermelon turns into another essential amino acid (known as L-arginine) by the body, which helps promote blood circulation and relieve blood vessels. This helps you recover from injury quickly and return to work sooner.
