GREEK MELON : In dried form from 4G
The word melon comes from the Latin melopepo or melopepone, which means “apple-melon” in a free rendering. In Greek, the name melon (pepo) is prevalent, while in other languages is called melon from the first melopepone composer.
Archaeological finds show that the cultivation of melons occurred in Iran and China, 5000 years ago, and Egypt, 4000 years ago. The Greeks and the Romans knew the melon but preferred the watermelon. They considered the melon vegetable and consumed it in salads or cooked, with vinegar, pepper and other spices. In Rome, the price was very high because of its scarcity. The Moors supported the cultivation and production in Spain in the eighth century, but the real interest in melon began in the fifteenth or sixteenth century when the sweet fruit varieties were grown.
The melon, in the opinion of many nutritionists, is rich in a number of ingredients known to lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and at the same time protect against various types of cancer.
Also, melon is an excellent source of antioxidants as it contains vitamin C and beta-carotene, helping to protect the body from various types of cancer, heart disease and other age related problems such as cataracts (Phytother Res. 2005).
It also contains vitamin A (19% / 100g), which is important for better vision and more effective protection against infections as it strengthens the body’s lymphocytes. As for vitamin C, it is contained in high proportions (41% / 100g), helping in turn the body’s defense system against infections, while protecting against oxidative stress and metabolic products that speed up the aging process.
It also contains vitamin B6, which contributes to the synthesis of neurotransmitters of the brain as it contributes to better mental and psychological health. Additional, it is rich in potassium, contributes to the regulation of cardiac function and blood pressure, while also having diuretic action (mainly because of the high percentage of water it contains). In a recent study, researchers found that people with higher potassium levels in their body had the lowest blood pressure.
