Have you started hydrating your body with this amazing drink? I have recently discovered this delicious cold-pressed watermelon drink and I wanted to share a little more information on it.
So WTRMLN WTR is kind of like the new coconut water, and I had yet to discover it until I saw it at Whole Foods Market the other day. It is all natural and full of vitamins and electrolytes that hydrate our body to maintain homeostasis. What is homeostasis? If you are a health nerd like me, then you know that homeostasis is the tendency of the body to seek and maintain a condition of balance or equilibrium within its internal environment; even when faced with external changes.
For all of you athletes and people who are out in the sun working up a sweat and rapidly losing fluids...this is such a great form of natural water to replenish your body with fluids and minerals (without GMO's and added derivatives like other sports drinks). WTRMLN WTR is made with the juice of "waste watermelons" that are discarded because of blemishes or cosmetic defects that do not affect taste (click here for full article). Instead of throwing these watermelons away, farmers are still able to make a profit and turn a loss into revenue.
I did a little research on WTRMLN WTR and here's what I got....
1. It is loaded with 550 naturally occurring potassium electrolytes. So that is 550 mg of Potassium...a perfect amount for people who are working out or rapidly losing fluids.
2. The water contains L-Citrulline which is an amino acid, and Lycopene which is a carotenoid phytonutrient that has been linked to improving cardiovascular health.
3. Loads of Vitamin C, and we all know that is one of the best ways of preventing colds and helping our immune system in so many different ways!
4. Did you know that Queen B has invested into WTRMLN WTR?
Beyonce stated "This is more than an investment in a brand. It's an investment in female leaders, fitness, American farmers, and the health of people and our planet."
I also love the fact that buying bottles of this water benefits an amazing cause. I'm helping the earth and I'm also helping The Whole Planet Foundation. The Whole Planet Foundation is a Whole Foods Market project that alleviates poverty through microcredit in communities around the world that supply Whole Foods Market with products. So hurry up and stock up on WTRMLN WTR because from August 3-6, customers can pick up any two bottles for only $5.00! Select stores will be hosting sampling events for National Watermelon Day so remember to follow Whole Foods Market on Instagram for more details.
