WHY WATERMELON?

Jun 26, 2013

We picked Watermelon as the fruit to support your body as we take you one step closer to a real fast; true abstinence from food. Watermelon is roughly 92% water and very low calorie, yet an excellent source of antioxidants as well as vitamin C, A, B1 & B6, beta-carotene, magnesium, potassium and lycopene (the carotenoid that makes watermelon that pretty red/pink).* While "fasting" you'll be peeing plenty (flush those kidneys!) as watermelon is also a powerful diuretic. Not a bad thing when you're cleansing! We're fans of and believers in the benefits of intermittent fasting and are thrilled to help ease you further into the practice with our Summer 1-Day Watermelon Cleanses!
