Happy National Watermelon Day!
At Raw Generation HQ, we’re celebrating by helping ourselves to our Limited Edition Melon Mint juice all day long!
But watermelon is so much more than a refreshing summer treat; it’s loaded with beauty-and-wellness-boosting properties! Here are 3 reasons to celebrate, eat, and drink more watermelon this summer!
1. It's a delicious way to support your healthy weight loss goals!
Watermelon is mostly made up of water (hence its name...) and, in combination with the fiber it provides, it helps you to feel full without consuming a significant amount of calories. In fact, it’s one of the lowest-calorie fruits, with only 46 calories per cup!
Watermelon is also an awesome low-calorie way to satisfy your sweet tooth. Have some anytime as a guilt-free dessert or treat! You really can’t have too much. Besides, it’s exponentially better for you than other chilled summertime desserts that are laden with processed sugar!
2. It’s hydrating!
Staying hydrated is of the utmost importance during the hot summer months. Most of us sweat significantly more during the summer, and when water is not adequately replaced, the body is immediately negatively impacted.
That’s because hydration is an essential part of most biological human functions- from digestion to body temperature regulation to detoxification to brain function. Even slight dehydration can wreak havoc on your mood, memory, and your ability to concentrate. Dehydration also slows down your body’s metabolism and can totally stall your weight loss goals!
Luckily, watermelon is super hydrating. Its made up of 92% water!
3. It promotes beautiful skin!
Watermelon is packed with vitamins and antioxidants that are essential to skin’s appearance and health.
It doses you with vitamin C which is vital for the body’s production of collagen, helping to support youthful and beautiful skin. It’s also a good source of vitamin A which gives the skin a healthy glow and promotes even, clear skin by speeding up healing and preventing breakouts.
Plus, watermelon is one of the richest sources of lycopene, an anti-inflammatory antioxidant which provides protection from clogged pores and breakouts!
Celebrate National Watermelon Day with a bottle of our epically refreshing Melon Mint juice, a mouthwatering fusion of melon juices that's nothing short of heavenly! Rich in electrolytes and antioxidants, this juice will quench your thirst and make you glow from the inside out.
