Description

  • Improve Heart Health: They contribute to heart-healthy fat, thereby preventing cardiovascular diseases. Pistachios can also lower bad cholesterol, which in turn improves blood flow and lowers blood pressure.
  • Aids Diabetes Treatment: after consumption, glucose and insulin levels are generally lowered. They also increase the levels of peptide 1, a hormone that regulates glucose levels in diabetics. Pistachios can have positive effects on glycemic control, blood pressure, and inflammation.
  • Enhance Gut Health: The high fibre content aids digestion and prevents constipation. The fibre is also digested by the food bacteria in your stomach and hence acts as a prebiotic.
  • Combat Inflammation: Pistachios are rich in monounsaturated fat which fights inflammation.
  • Aids Weight Loss: The fibre in pistachios can keep you full for long periods which in turn keeps you from binging and contributes to healthy weight loss. The protein in the pistachios also helps to keeps you satiated and reduces hunger pangs.
  • Improve Vision Health: Pistachios have the highest amounts of lutein and zeaxanthin amongst all nuts. These are found in the human retina, and taking enough of these antioxidants prevents vision issues like age-related macular degeneration and cataracts. Pistachios also contain zinc, which is another mineral that is a vital nutrient for the eyes.
