Watermelon Cucumber Juice is the first step towards my end of summer denial. AND IT’S SO GOOD! Besides quenching your thirst, watermelon is a nutrient-rich natural diuretic. It rids of bloating from the high-water content and provides nourishing nutrients like Vitamin A and Vitamin C and B-complex compounds such as thiamin, riboflavin, and pyridoxine as well as cancer-fighting lycopene. Watermelons are known to be super cleansing and alkalizing. They help flush everything out! Cayenne pepper revs up your metabolism and helps burn a few extra calories. The seeds of the fruit offer a wealth of nutrients as well, and should not be overlooked! Because watermelon is so nutrient-rich, it’s a great juice for fasting, cleansing, and weight loss. Watermelon provides a rich resource of electrolytes and is void of cholesterol and nearly absent of fat while offering a modest amount of fiber and protein, and as little as 48 calories per cup!
