Watermelon Drink


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.

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.
 
 
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!

  3. What I love drinking in summer is watermelon, the first time I read the article about watermelon and it's composition of arginine which might possibly help me and my husband to be more active in bed. In addition to this, I've also read from Dr. Mercola about how a big possibility that l-arginine supplement might really help too. His research are based from the Noble-prize winners Dr. Ignarro, Dr. Murad and Robert Furgotch that tackle about nitric oxide's benefits within our body.

    1. Oh Thank you Diana! I am so glad you appreciate the benefits we mention in our post. I am a big fan of Dr.'s that write about wellness and health benefits with supplements. I've been reading some of Gary Null's books on wellness and how to live a long healthy life as well. Thank you for sharing your info about the l-arginine supplement and Dr, Mercola. I haven't read his book yet, but I would like to pick one up. Thanks again!

  5. I didn't know that watermelon helps improve sleep! I need to eat gobs of it now! I love watermelon and even if it's not in season, I'll still pick it up in the market if it looks good. It's just such a natural sweet treat and I love it in a squeezed beverage! Have a great holiday weekend!

  6. Do you had a watermelon seed-spitting challenge as a kid? We were really permitted to spit something! What a senseless and entertaining action for the fourth of July or an excursion.
