You’re sore muscles just got a new friend, the summer fruit favorite; watermelon.
Working out can often lead to dehydration and electrolyte depletion which are the leading factors to sore and tired muscles. This is why doctors encourage us to stay hydrated before, during and after exercise.
According to a study in the Journal of Agricultural Food and Chemistry, drinking watermelon juice ( especially when the juice is unpasteurized) before an intense workout like Drenched or Strong By Zumba, can aid to very sore muscles. Did you know watermelon is rich in an amino acid called L-citrulline, which the body converts to L-arginine, an essential amino acid that helps relax blood vessels and improve circulation, helping with cramping too.
But its not summer, which means the summer fruit favorite is not in season and readily available for us to get our hands on after an #LRStrong workout. Of course, we found a solution, courtesy of the company WTRMLN WTR, we can all relieve our tired, cramping muscles with watermelon water, available all year round.
