Watermelon Zest

watermelon zest drink

2 cups of freshly cut watermelon
1/2 cup of watermelon rind
Juice and zest of one lemon
1-2 teaspoons of glycine
a few mint leaves
optional: add 1 teaspoon of chlorella or take a chlorella tablet/capsule

Place in a blender and mix until smooth consistency.

Glycine helps to bind to and remove glyphosate (herbicide: RoundUp). Chlorella helps to bind and remove fat soluble contaminants. Mint promotes the production of bile, which helps to bind and remove heavy metals. Lemons contain vitamin C which is an antioxidant and helps to neutralize free radicals linked to aging and most diseases. Watermelon is high in dietary fiber which helps to bind heavy metals. It also contains glutathione, the body’s master antioxidant. Watermelon rind is high in citrulline which creates a diuretic effect in the body and helps us to eliminate contaminants. Citrulline also makes arginine which removes ammonia from the body.
