Cantaloupe Berry Elixir

Summary
blueberry-juice
Today’s juice is a delicious sweet concoction inspired by the warm weather outside. Due to the sweetness of its melon and berry content, this juice is best enjoyed over ice. Drinking a juice with ice can be good for a number of reasons. For one thing, it’ll slow your consumption. And slower consumption can serve two beneficial purposes: you’ll probably enjoy the juice more, as you savor every sip. Additionally, you’ll help limit the risk of an insulin spike, as your body will be receiving the sugars from the juice more slowly, and thus should have an easier time processing them.Cantaloupe Health BenefitsIf you’ve ever tasted a ripe cantaloupe, you’re probably already sold on this juice. But let’s still talk about its health benefits for just a second. Cantaloupe is a terrific source of vitamin A. It’s also a good source of vitamin C – one serving of cantaloupe contains three times the amount of vitamin C found in an apple. 

If you’re stressed out, you’ll be pleased to learn that cantaloupe contains myo-inositol, a lipid which is known for its anti-anxiety properties. Plus cantaloupe and other melons are recommended by the American Cancer Society for their ability to help prevent skin and intestinal cancers. Melons are also great for juicing because of the high liquid content – juice some and find out!
