The Pink Avocado's Thoughts

1/2 seedless watermelon, with rind
2 cucumbers
1 lime
Juice all ingredients.
Why is watermelon so good for your heart? It turns out that it contains large amounts of the plant nutrient citrulline. When digesting watermelon, citrulline gets converted to arginine, an amino acid that helps relax blood vessels, improve blood flow, and boosts your immune system. The only catch? Citrulline is found in highest concentrations in watermelon rind, rather than its sweet flesh. Most people I know don’t sit around gnawing on watermelon rind, so how do you unlock this little miracle? Juice!
Note: If you’re diabetic or following a low-sugar diet, keep in mind that watermlon flesh is pretty sugary, so take it easy on juicing the flesh. I primarily use the rind and add cucumber for volume. http://thepinkavocado.com/
