When I hear “watermelon” my mind is moved to a warm summer day out at the lake with huge watermelon wedges accompanying a family Fourth of July cookout. As we head into fall and winter, my hope is that watermelon will stay fresh on our minds as an essential fruit to include in your recipes for juicing!
Don’t leave watermelons behind this Winter…they must find a place in your juicing recipes!
Watermelon is a great source of Vitamin A, which is great for eye health and is a natural antioxidant. It is also packed with Vitamin C which helps strengthen immunity, heal wounds and prevents cell damage. And lots of Vitamin B6, which helps brain function and helps convert protein to energy. Did you know that Watermelon has the most concentration of lycopene than any other fruit or vegetable? Lycopene is a super powerful antioxidant that helps fight heart disease and several types of cancer prostate in particular.
Wow! Watermelon packs a heck of a punch, nutritionally speaking. But that’s not all! In addition to these benefits, watermelon is a rich source of potassium, which helps muscle and nerve function, works to maintain your body’s proper electrolyte and acid-base balance, and helps lower the risk of high blood pressure.
If that’s not enough of a reason to put watermelon in your juicing recipes for weight loss, then how about the fact they are downright delicious!? There’s nothing more refreshing and rejuvenating than that sweet, light pink juice that is bursting with nutrients and flavor.
