We all love to get the desired body through workouts. Though the exercises may get rigorous at times, we like going the extra mile in order to get the best results. But what you do after the workout session is equally important. After a strenuous set of exercises, the body is drained of many vital nutrients. This needs to be addressed post-workout. The best way is to grab healthy food and drinks to replenish the body with nutrients. Nutritionist Lovneet Batra has given us a good life hack.

As the summer heat is taking a toll on us, we need to start taking good care of our bodies. It's best to hydrate ourselves not only with drinks but also with food. Seasonal fruits like watermelon are best for this purpose. And, here are the benefits of watermelon. Lovneet writes, “Watermelon is packed with water and nutrients, contains very few calories, and is exceptionally refreshing. What's more, it's rich in both amino acid citrulline and the antioxidant lycopene, two powerful plant compounds which have numerous benefits for health.”
You may be wondering how are these compounds beneficial to our body. The health benefits of lycopene include strong antioxidant properties. It also boosts brain health. On the other hand, citrulline helps in soothing sore muscles and lowering blood pressure. So, you can load up on lycopene and citrulline to your everyday diet for the best results.
