Heart disease is one of the most serious health threats we face today. 

In addition, it’s the most prevalent cause of death worldwide. Its impact is profound, and its various types are well known. 

Whether it is heart failure, coronary artery disease, diabetes, high blood pressure or heart attack, our lifestyle choices aid in lowering the risks.

While some types of heart diseases are congenital (you’re born with them), others develop over time as a result of a poor diet and unhealthy daily practices.

In either case, embracing a greater consciousness of your health and revising your habits can lead to a healthier you, and a healthier heart.

We want to help. So, in this issue of Yello Juice Bar, we present a juice recipe with watermelon and raspberries. These two fruits are known for containing nutrients that aid in heart health.

One of the most notable nutrients that watermelons possess is lycopene. Lycopene is a type of phytonutrient (a type of natural plant chemical) that promotes cardiovascular and bone health. The nutrient is also found in tomatoes, but watermelons have a higher content. Also, watermelon is known to be rich in antioxidants.

Meanwhile, raspberries pack a similar punch for maintaining a healthy heart. These little berries are loaded with vitamins C and K and manganese.

According to Medical News Today, they are also high in flavonoids (antioxidants with inflammatory and immune system benefits) and lower the risk of death from cardiovascular diseases.

That said, what are you waiting for? Get your blender ready. This recipe, though simple, packs a wallop in your battle against heart disease.
