The Details: Mood Booster

Dehydration is a known contributor to anxiety and depression. Honeydew melon contains not only 90% water, but that water is also charged with electrolytes (like potassium, magnesium, sodium, and calcium) required to hydrate properly.

Cilantro is reputed to provide a calming, sedative effect on those who consume it. It is also known for its heavy metal removal and anti-convulsant properties.

Lemons work to help counter depression and anxiety through both ingestion and smell. The aroma of fresh lemon raises our levels of norepinephrine, a brain chemical that boosts motivation and decision-making. Lemons are also full of vitamin C, a known to lower stress hormones in the body.

The Juicer: Kuvings CS700

Kuvings CS700 Juicer is a great machine for either the home or commercial juicer.

I made the Mellow Melon on the Kuvings CS700 Juicer! It’s an excellent choice for commercial and high-volume home use.

The large 3.5″ feed chute means minimal chopping is needed, making juicing easy and fast. It gives good yield, as evidenced by the nice, dry pulp. The juice itself has little foam or pulp, both of which are highly desired in any juicer.

It boasts NSF commercial certification and a motor designed to run for up to 24 hours without stopping. This makes it a model supremely designed for the commercial kitchen.
