Why juice watermelon?
When juicing watermelon as opposed to eating it, you are breaking down the solids in advance for quicker absorption. Therefore, reaping all the benefits it naturally provides.
What are the Health Benefits to Drinking Watermelon!
Watermelon contains high levels of lycopene which is an antioxidant that helps protect and gives you younger-looking skin. The cherry red color comes from lycopene and studies show it may help curb your risk of cancer.
It also contains vitamins A, C, and potassium and is considered as a natural energy drink, because it also provides vitamin B6 and magnesium which helps boost our energy levels.
Plus, watermelon helps you hydrate. This is why drinking a watermelon drink is perfect to drink after a good marathon run!
Watermelon is also found to be helpful in healing wounds faster, as well as other skin problems. The fruit is packed with the amino acid citrulline, which the body converts to arginine.
Arginine speeds the delivery of white blood cells to injury sites, plus spurs the growth of new skin tissue. Study shows that these processes can help skin heal three-times faster.
Watermelon even helps improve our sleep at night by increasing our body’s levels of serotonin, making the brain less sensitive to noise.
So many good reasons why we should be eating and drinking watermelon.
It’s good for everyone!
After a day in the sun, or at the beach, a watermelon drink can be the perfect drink to serve family and friends. So refreshing, it’s amazing!
