Need a ULTRA effective hydration smoothie idea? Here's our recipe to your rescue! WATERMELON - some might think it's a rather bland fruit, and despite the popular belief that watermelon is made up of water and sugar. It's become a SUMMER fruit for good reasons! It is actually so full of healthy minerals that can serve as a natural source of "sports drink", very much like coconut water.  
It's rich in lycopene (the antioxidant most commonly associated with tomatoes). The amino acid L-citrulline contained in watermelon has been shown to reduce muscle soreness. Choline, which is rich in watermelon aids us to sleep better, and combats inflammation. The benefits are countless!
