Why Watermelon Days at Azad's! 

At Azad's Martial Arts Center we have lots of fun! 

During summer months not only we have a number of new programs, classes, playful days, and activities but we have lots of cool things going on like the Watermelon Days!

Here is why:

Watermelon is refreshing, and hydrating.  But there is more to it than you think!  Just read the following article from Shape Magazine:

Nutritious, refreshing, and low in calories, watermelon also serves up serious protection against heart disease.  Researchers from the USDA Agricultural Research Service found that it raises levels of arginine, and amino acid shown to improve blood-vessel function in the body.

Study subjects who drank three glasses of watermelon juice a day had 12 percent higher levels of arginine than those who didn’t drink any.  But arginine isn’t the only heart-smart ingredient.

Watermelon is also one of the best sources of lycopene, an antioxidant that can lower harmful LDL cholesterol and reduce the risk of certain cancers.

So do your health – and taste buds- a favor and come to classes during our watermelon days at Azad’s Martial Arts Center and make sure to get a slice of this delicious fruit.

See you in classes this summer!
