Health Benefits of Pistachios
Just a small handful of pistachios offer a healthy dose of fats, antioxidants, vitamin A, and vitamin E. Antioxidants are essential for protecting skin and cells from aging and disease, and are involved with removing toxins from the body. Healthy fats are important for younger-looking skin and keeping the body in balance; getting enough dietary fat can reduce cravings and help suppress the appetite. Some studies suggest that pistachios can help manage high cholesterol levels by keeping arteries healthy. Researchers reported a positive effect on HDL levels in a study published in the journal Nutrition, Metabolism and Cardiovascular Diseases (Vol. 16, pp. 202).
One cup of pistachios contains just over 700 calories and 57 grams of fat; it's not a low fat or low calorie food, but a little goes a long way. Pistachios contain plenty of dietary fiber and even protein, making them a valuable addition to your daily snack choices. Look for unsalted and organic varieties for the most nutritious and healthful choices.
Eating nuts on a regular basis can help keep your diet in balance, and pistachios are just one of many varieties that can help you achieve good health! Enjoy a small handful a few days per week and maximize the benefits of these exotic treats.
