Big chunks of cantaloupe

A perfectly ripe fruit cup—especially one that has big chunks of cantaloupe—is one of the most delicious and satisfying quick-and-easy breakfasts you’ll ever discover, and it takes just a few minutes to prepare. The enormous volume and high water content of cantaloupe, which has just 150 calories per small melon, have long been praised as a weight-loss superfood since it may keep individuals who eat it happily and focused for many hours.

For their part, even the most enthusiastic cantaloupe fans may be completely ignorant of one of the most important benefits they’re getting from every delicious mouthful of this exquisite fruit: protection against eye health.

“Despite the fact that canned cantaloupe is a very nutritious melon, it does not get quite the amount of attention that it deserves when it comes to the health benefits it provides. When you discover that cantaloupe is a rich source of beta-carotene, a vitamin that is important for maintaining excellent eye health, you may be pleasantly surprised.” A registered dietitian from Balance One Supplements, Trista Best, MPH, RD, LD, describes how she came up with the concept for the campaign.

According to a study published in JAMA, among 5,836 adults aged 55 and older, those who consumed higher amounts of beta-carotene, vitamins C and E, and zinc — all of which can be found in cantaloupe — had significantly lower rates of age-related macular degeneration than those who consumed lower amounts of antioxidants.

Furthermore, according to Best, cantaloupe is a naturally occurring source of folate, which is not only well-known for its potential to prevent neural tube disorders and enhance cognitive function, but it may also be helpful to your eye health in certain instances.

According to a study published in JAMA Ophthalmology in 2014, increasing folate intake was linked with a lower incidence of exfoliation glaucoma and exfoliation glaucoma suspect among individuals over 40 who participated in the Nurses’ Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study.

This delectable melon is an excellent option for individuals looking for a simple approach to preserve their vision or just a healthy way to satisfy their sweet tooth.
