Childhood beliefs !! 🍉👧👦🧚‍♀️🧚 --- If you swallow a seed, it will grow into a plant ! How many of you grew up believing this ?

In reality, the watermelon seeds, pass right through the body without digestion. For sure, a watermelon plant does not grow !!🍉🍉😅😅  These low cal seeds are in fact, packed with nutrition. They are rich in zinc, healthy fats, amino acids etc. They contain vitamin C, a strong dietary antioxidant which helps counter the effects of asthma. Including them in the diet also helps stabilize fluctuating blood sugar levels due to their high magnesium content. You can eat theses seeds straight out of the watermelon, but you won't really experience any sort of nutritional benefits. The black shell of the seed seals off the endosperm and other nutrients hidden inside that give the seed its flavor and nutrition. In order to experience the benefits, the seeds need to be sprouted, shelled, and dried !!
