Cantaloupe - Nutrition

Packed with electrolytes, vitamins and minerals, Cantaloupe is a perfect summer time treat to prevent dehydration and fatigue.

Aside being a very good source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Potassium, 
Cantaloupe is also a good source of vitamin B6, dietary fiber, folate, and niacin (vitamin B3). 

The combination of all these B complex vitamins along with the fiber found in cantaloupe make it an exceptionally good fruit for supporting energy production through good carbohydrate metabolism and blood sugar stability. 

These B complex vitamins are required in our cells for processing carbohydrates (including sugars), and cantaloupe's fiber helps ensure cantaloupe's sugars are delivered into the bloodstream gradually, keeping blood sugar on an even keel.
