#BodyDetoxFriday: WATERMELON

TGIF. Quite a truckload of stuff happened this week, work demanded so much time, assignments and project works in school are killing, and you couldn’t help but do a little junk. No worries, let’s do a quick body clean today to make sure everything is perfect again.

It’s Body Detox Friday and the body detox magician of the day are WATERMELON.

Watermelon contains a high amount of Citrulline-a compound that makes arginine which removes ammonia and other toxins from the body. Also, Arginine boosts nitric acid formation, which improves blood flow.

Watermelon has a high water content; this creates a diuretic effect (constant urination) which aids the elimination of body toxins.

Watermelon is high in dietary fibre which keeps the colon clean, ultimately cleansing the body.
