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 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!
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!
