Raspberries are a great benefit to your overall health. They are rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber. Raspberries promote weight loss, reduce wrinkles and prevent muscular degeneration which is an age-related condition that affects your eye sight. But did you know that studies have also shown that due to the high concentration of ellagic acid, ( a phenolic compound that prevents cancer) raspberries also aid in stopping the growth of cancer cells and eliminating the progress of some cancers?
Almonds also have some amazing health benefits. They are loaded with antioxidants, high in Vitamin E and aid in the protection of your cell membranes from damage. Almonds are great in assisting in blood sugar control and blood pressure levels, they assist in lowering cholesterol and also in weight loss. Research also shows that consuming a large amount of almonds can reduce the risk of developing breast cancer as well. With so many benefits from both of these ingredients, drinking PINK has never tasted so good. Not only does it taste delicious but your body is thanking you with every sip.
