Watermelon Cucumber Juice


Watermelon Cucumber Juice:

Watermelons and cucumbers are in season right now.Watermelon-Cucumber is probably my favorite juicing combination and It’s so delicious and refreshing in summers.Watermelon is known for being very cleansing for the whole body, especially for the kidneys.  It’s a well-known natural remedy to help break up kidney stones + help prevent them from occurring.  Watermelon is full of antioxidants and is high in vitamin A (beta-carotene) and vitamin C.  It is also very hydrating.Cucumbers are high in vitamin C and antioxidants. They are also known for having cleansing properties and dissolving kidney stones.  Cucumbers are very hydrating due to their high water content.  When juiced, they have a very mild, sweet flavor, which goes well with almost any juicing combination.
