Watermelon Drinks- More than Weight Loss

The new water is watermelon flavored. Why is watermelon a great choice for everyone?

Watermelon is made up of over 85% water which aids with dehydration. This is a great addition to your 8 ounces of water during hot summer days and warm exercise rooms.

Watermelon has lycopene which aids with inflammation. Watermelon can possibly help with arthritis as well as other inflammatory problems.

Watermelon is great as a pre workout drink. You will have decreased muscle soreness the next day. You will also help your heart and your bone density by drinking watermelon water or having a slice of watermelon daily.

How do can you add watermelon to you daily life? You can have a slice of watermelon; make watermelon water to add a little sweetness to your water; blend it into a shake (rind as well).
