Diced Watermelon [Good Housekeeping]

Tobechukwu gives an expose on some fruits you need to be eating and their benefits.

If you are having issues with digestion, watermelon helps the body break down protein in the body. It also has a high water and fibre content which is handy if you are experiencing constipation.

Cucumber hydrates the skin and reduces the chances of getting acne and skin irritation.

Fresh tomatoes contain lycopene which is good for the prostate. The pharmacist's advice is if you are a man and you are having issues sexually, try getting fresh tomatoes, the ripe ones and just chew on them.

Even if you have no issues, tomatoes are good for your prostate.

Carrots are a good source of vitamin A and antioxidants which helps to protect your eyes from degenerating as you age.

Avocados contain antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and a load of dietary fibres which improves your heart's condition.
