It's that time of year again, your nose is blocked, you can’t breathe, and everything you want to eat either tastes like cardboard or makes you feel sick. Eating well when you’re not feeling 100 percent can easily become a task difficult as Everest.
We’re often told keep drinking fluids because risk of dehydration is much higher when you’re that weak, that hungry, and ever so tired. But one can only put up with so much orange juice and tea, which is why watermelon is the perfect snack when you’re ill.
Watermelon is actually 92 percent water, so it’s great for preventing dehydration. The pulp will also help put something solid into your stomach in order to hold it and provide a coating so that you feel fuller for longer.
The sugar from watermelon is healthy natural sugar that will give you energy to help with the fatigue that accompanies the common cold and other viruses. Watermelons are also packed with electrolytes which instantly hydrate. They also contain nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin B, and vitamin A. It’s a much healthier and more natural alternative to Gatorade, and it tastes great!
Simo Juice uses watermelon as their main ingredient in their Hydramax for this very reason. It uses cold pressed juice technology to conserve up to 90 percent of the nutrients of the watermelon and other fruits to help hydrate you and support your immune system.
