I'm so honored and excited to be working with LeJuicery, Kenosha Wi, as their Health & Wellness expert.
On Mondays, I'll be sharing the benefits of making healthier choices, and highlight one item from the menu every week.
We all live busy and sometimes stressful lives, with so many things to do once we get out of work. Often times making healthy choices is NOT one of them. Thats why it's so important to me, to spread the word and share with you, that there is in fact places like Le Juicery, with Healthy clean eats and drinks on the menu.
Featured this week is H2O melon juice
The main ingredient in this juice is Watermelon, and it might come as a surprise, that besides being a really good source of hydration in the summer heat, it's actually a bomb of amazing nutrients.
Lycopene is a phytonutrient and definitely on the top of the list. Besides providing the red color, Lycopene is one of the most powerful antioxidants in the world. It helps neutralize oxidative stress, and reduce the risk of some cancer types, especially prostate cancer. It is also a really good phytonutrient to help improve your heart health, eye health, bone health, and your brain. Vitamin C is another huge antioxidant you find in watermelon. Most people knows, that Vitamin C is known to strengthen our immune system, but what you probably don't know is, that it is an essential component of our connective tissue, which is vital for our wound healing. Together with Lycopene, it also fights oxidative stress, and in some countries it is used to fight cancer.
Other than these to powerful antioxidants, you also find Vitamin A, Magnesium, Vitamin B6, and Iron.
Last but not least, it a great source of fibers, which we need to keep our digestive system healthy.
Besides the powerful watermelon you'll find apple, strawberry, lime and sea salt in the H2O melon juice.
