    Horned Melon (Kiwano) - The horned melon is primarily a good source of vitamin C, potassium and iron. Other minerals less abundant are magnesium, phosphorous, zinc, copper, calcium and sodium.

    The seeds of horned melon contain a number of fatty acids including linoleic acid and Oleic acid. Linoleic acid is one of the omega 6 fatty acid which are essential for human health. Oleic acid, also found in olive oil, is thought to be responsible for the blood pressure reducing effects of olive oil.

    Two of the antioxidants identified in horned melon seeds are a-tocopherol and y-tocopherol. Both are organic forms of vitamin E. Vitamin E has numerous health benefits including healthy Skin, heart, muscles, nerves, and red blood cells.

    It also helps neutralize damaging free radicals, that can cause chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and cancer. There is also some evidence to suggest that Horned Melon could help reduce our risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

    The yellowish-green colored pigment found in the seeds and pulp of horned melon contain the carotenoid, beta carotene, commonly known as vitamin A. Beta carotene helps strengthen the body’s immune system and maintain eye and skin health.

    It also helps cancer prevention by inhibiting the grow of free radicals. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables that contain carotenoids such as beta Carotone, lycopene and lutein could also help repair and protect DNA, thereby slowing the ageing process.
