It’s beneficial mainly for the digestive system and cardiovascular system. Because of it’s fiber content and high water content it helps to cleanse and remove waste in the digestive system. The mineral rich and beta-carotene content give it a one-two punch to benefit your arteries, lungs and heart. Your cardiovascular system and digestive system as a whole benefit.
