Watermelon juice is the most refreshing, thirst quenching drink you can make all summer long. It is a fruit juice that is not only delicious, but also very nutritious with many health benefits.
Watermelon contains high levels of lycopene which is an antioxidant that helps protect and gives you younger looking skin. 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. Which 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 show that these processes can help skin heal 3x 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 at the beach, a watermelon drink can be the perfect drink to serve your family and friends. So refreshing, it’s amazing!
Simply place chunks of watermelon into your blender, puree into juice, then pour into a glass with ice and serve. A small glass of watermelon juice is all you need daily to stay a little more healthier!
Enjoy and have a great week!
