Muskmelon is beneficial for conditions like lack of appetite, urinary tract infections, constipation, acidity and ulcer. Muskmelons are rich in potassium which helps in controlling blood pressure, regulating the heart beat, relief from cramps and also prevent strokes. Musk melon reduces heat in the body, so consuming this fruit in summer is very beneficial. It also relieves tiredness, enhances appetite and is an effective laxative. It is a good source of Vitamins A, B, and C.
