    Watermelon Skin Cleansing Smoothie

    Many people don’t know that watermelon is filled with health benefits. It is nature’s perfect food, boasting a healthful balance of proteins, carbs and fats. It brims with beneficial vitamins: B complex vitamins, vitamins C, A, beta carotene, lycopene, vitamins E and K, and is a great source of minerals:  boron, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, sodium, and zinc.

    Colorful watermelon is anti-inflammatory and is a great antioxidant.

    Lycopene, a carotenoid, which becomes more abundantly available as watermelon get more ripe, is an inhibitor of many inflammatory processes.  One of the things lycopene does is inhibit the production of pro-inflammatory messaging molecules.  (1)
