Autumn is the season of the watermelon. At this time of year, the berry is the most accessible and safe, since it ripens on its own, without the use of chemical fertilizers. Many try to regularly consume berries, but you need to observe the measure and not overeat, as there is a risk of provoking various health problems. A safe portion for an ordinary person, according to the head of urology at the Volgograd Regional Urineurological Center, is from 500 to 1,000 grams of product per day. Eating more can damage the kidneys. Those who are seen by a doctor should be very careful with the fruit. When organs do not work properly, they cannot quickly remove water, which causes edema and hypertension. In addition, there is a load on the pancreas.
It appears due to the high content of simple carbohydrates in the pulp of the berry. Iron also suffers from the choleretic properties of watermelon. Because of this, the work of the organ is stimulated, and inflammation can occur in a person with chronic ailments.
