Try Watermelon & Rosemary For Stress Management
Watermelon and Rosemary not only tastes and smell good but it is also healthy-the combination is divine. This vitamin water is ideal for helping you balance stress on a mental and physiological level. With the addition of B vitamins, hydrating watermelon and calming rosemary is a combination best used during times of stress.
Watermelon helps you gain a high amount of vitamins, minerals, as well as antioxidants. It is packed with important nutrients like beta-carotene, vitamins A, B1, B6, and C, potassium, biotin, copper, and pantothenic acid-it is also rich in magnesium.
Rosemary on the other hand helps to improve digestion and also contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. Rosemary has a stimulating effect on the mind in that it promotes healthy blood flow to brain tissue, and cleanses blood all along the way. Now you see! Rosemary can also help improve circulation; boost liver function, eliminate bad breath, boost immune function, cure adrenal fatigue, improve digestion, relieve muscle, nerve, and sciatic pain; help clear up eczema and other skin conditions, relieve rheumatism, and kill harmful bacteria.
On the other hand, Magnesium is considered the master mineral. It is involved with over 300 cellular metabolic functions. While nearly 92% of watermelon is water, the 8% left over is rich in this compound, protecting and nourishing the heart, prostate, and skin.
