Health Benefits of Dried Cantaloupe
1) Antioxidant Powerhouse: Dried cantaloupe is a healthy snack that
is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. The antioxidants
in a serving of dried cantaloupe helps the body neutralize free
radicals that can damage healthy cells. Antioxidants are associated
with the prevention of chronic conditions like heart disease and
stroke. Dried cantaloupe is also rich in beta-carotene, a
carotenoid that does much more than just give the fruit its vibrant
2) Healthy Eyes and Skin: Beta-carotene converts to vitamin A in
the body and is an important nutrient for skin and eye health.
Consuming adequate levels of beta-carotene improves skin tone and
texture, to help maintain a youthful glow. Research indicates that
this carotenoid also protects the skin from sun damage by reducing
the harmful effects of UV rays. Beta-carotene also helps prevent
cataracts and reduces the risk for macular degeneration, the
leading cause of blindness in older adults.
3) Heart Health: Bananas aren’t the only good source of potassium!
Dried cantaloupe is an excellent way to increase your intake of
this essential mineral. Potassium regulates heartbeat, reduces high
blood pressure, and may lower the risk for cardiovascular disease.
It is especially important for keeping sodium levels in check.
Dried cantaloupe is also high in B-complex vitamins, particularly
folate. Also referred to as folic acid or vitamin B-12, folate
reduces hardening of the arteries, a precursor to heart disease.
