Some health benefits of watermelon:

  • The health benefits of watermelon are really great. No matter how it is sliced, it is packed with some of the most important antioxidants found in nature.
  • It is an excellent source of vitamin C and a very good source of vitamin A, particularly through its concentration of beta-carotene.
  • The beautiful red watermelon is also a source of the potent carotene antioxidant which is called lycopene. These antioxidants travel throughout the body neutralizing free radicals. Free radicals are substances in the body that can cause much damage to us. They are able to oxidize cholesterol, making it stick to blood vessel walls and thicken them which can lead to heart attack or stroke. The lycopene which gives fruits the attractive red color that we find in watermelon can help reduce the risks of prostate cancer.
  • It is a surprising fact that watermelon is the only fruit that contains higher concentrations of lycopene than any other fresh fruit or vegetable.
  • Watermelon is a fruit that is rich in electrolytes sodium and potassium that we lose through our perspiration.
  • Watermelon is rich in the B vitamins necessary for energy production. Food experts recommend watermelon as a very good source of vitamin B6 and a good source of vitamin B1 and magnesium. Because of its higher water content approximately ninety percent and calorie value it is ranked more valuable than other fruits.
  • Watermelon has a special cooling effect and is exceptionally high in citrulline, an amino acid that our bodies use to make another amino acid, which is used in the urea cycle to remove ammonia from the body.
  • The antioxidants help reducing the severity of asthma. It also reduces the risk of colon cancer, asthma, heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and prostate cancer.
  • Watermelon is a good source of thiamin, potassium and magnesium which protect our body from so many diseases.
  • Watermelon is fat free but helps energy production. It protects against macular degeneration.

Break The Fast…

Start the day right – Don’t skip your breakfast..

What does “breakfast” mean? Your body responds to not eating for hours and hours by “slowing down”; diminishing its metabolic rate and burning fewer calories to conserve energy. By eating breakfast, you wake up your metabolism and get your engine started, burning those calories you need to burn to lose weight.

Skipping breakfast makes you grouchy…

Studies show that people who eat breakfast tend to be in better moods. Breakfast gets you started on the right track for the day.

Get Healthy Glowing Skin, Stay Hydrated

One of the best ways to nourish your skin is to drink plenty of water. Water assists the body with it’s natural elimination process by flushing unwanted toxins out.

Did you know? Crankiness and irritability are some of the first signs that a person is dehydrated. A good thing to tell your sweety next time either one of you gets a little crabby. or better yet, say nothing and just give ‘em a little agua.

Keep a never-ending supply of water at your desk at work or wherever you spend most of your time. I like to mix things up with a little sparkling water or a slice of lemon or orange or cucumber on days that I want to pamper myself.

For a little added pampering at work, try a hydrating mist.
My secret weapon that I keep stored in my desk drawer is Hydrating Mist.
