Watermelon Tomato Detox Smoothie

While watermelons are low in most vitamins and minerals, they are a good source of vitamin C and beta-carotene (which your body synthesizes into vitamin A). Watermelons with red flesh have more lycopene than tomatoes which is a nutrient believed to protect against prostate cancer.

Smoothie of the Week 7/7/14


  • Watermelons contain two interesting nutrients which are found especially abundantly in the edible rind, citrulline and arginine.
  • Citrulline has been shown to boost heart health, the immune system and help with weight loss and type 2 diabetes.
  • Arginine boosts nitric oxide in the body which helps relax blood vessels and can treat and prevent erectile dysfunction.
  • Some say watermelon is nature’s answer to Viagra.
  • Arginine also removes toxins from the body.
