Tsammaste

That’s right, Tsammaste (sah-ma-stay). The obvious way to profess our love for Yoga.

In yoga, the word namaste acts as a symbol of respect, gratitude and connection. The divine light in me honors the divine light in you. Tsamma is the ancestor of all watermelons and the name of our farm-fresh watermelon juice. We chose the name Tsamma to pay homage and respect to the ancient ancestor of all watermelon varieties. The wild Tsamma melon has sustained life in the Kalahari desert, for thousands of years and is still used today for essential hydration.

Even if you're an experienced yogi, the heat or inversions can cause dizziness due to dehydration. Yoga can also cause muscle soreness due to the tiny tears that result from contracting and retracting the muscles in your body. Watermelon is primarily made up of water but packed with powerful vitamins and nutrients to aid in hydration and relieve muscle soreness. Alongside tomatoes, watermelon has moved up in recent research studies as the lycopene leader. Lycopene, a naturally-occurring pigment that produces red fruits, is effective in helping to prevent heart disease and certain types of cancer. Nutritionists and medical professionals are becoming more interested in the L-citrulline content in watermelon. L-citrulline, an amino acid, is used to treat Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, fatigue, muscle weakness, high blood pressure and diabetes. As for potassium, watermelon makes the top ten list. Potassium is one of the seven essential macrominerals and its primary functions in the body include building muscle, synthesizing proteins, controlling the electrical activity of the heart and maintaining acid-base balance.

Each bottle of Tsamma contains one and a half pounds of our farm-fresh watermelons. With no added sugar or artificial flavors, Tsamma hydrates, supports muscle recovery and increases blood flow the healthy way. Doesn’t that knowledge make you want to do sun salutations out on the farm, until the cows come home? Of course it does.
