Recipe: Watermelon and Mint Smash

Maintaining a healthy level of hydration is important to the body on so many levels. When water and important electrolytes are lost, normal functioning can be compromised. If this happens, one of the most common symptoms is a painful, recurring headache.

The easiest way to combat this symptom is to rehydrate by drinking water and consuming other water dense fruits and vegetables. Watermelon contains mostly water, and is thus an ideal choice to fill the body back up with fluids. Combined here with mint, another common natural headache reliever, watermelon takes center stage to bring the body right back into balance.
