Magnificent Melons

Honeydew with Aloe Vera, and a dash of Cinnamon

Melons make skin glow and look bright, because they promote synthesis of collagen and the skin.  Melon juice also works towards relaxing the body, relieving some insomnia, jumpy nerves and helps calming anxieties. Melon juice removes excessive heat in the body, so one should consume this juice to increase the Kapha levels and reduce Pitta and Vata levels. It is also a diuretic, a laxative, and because they are rich in vitamins C and A, Potassium and Magnesium, it can also behave as an aphrodisiac. Cinnamon has been found to have antifungal, antibacterial and anti-parasitic properties, and is an excellent source of manganese, dietary fiber, iron and calcium. Aloe vera is a wonderplant that has anti-inflammatory properties, and aids in digestion and detoxification. It’s also a cellular regenerator with anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
