Pistachios have a lot of benefits for your health that you may not be aware of.
Did you know that besides from having anti-aging properties, they also help in preventing cardiovascular disease and eliminate headaches?
Health Benefits of Pistachios
Just a few pistachios contain large amounts of antioxidants (like resveratrol) which delay the aging process.
Improves “Bad” Cholesterol
Pistachios are rich in Omega 3 and Omega 9. According to a study by US scientists at the University of Pennsylvania, people who eat raw pistachios 100 g daily manage to keep the “bad” cholesterol (LDL) under control, important risk factor in cardiovascular diseases.
Patients experiencing problems with the “bad” cholesterol can see improvements after just three weeks.
Prevents Hypertension and Cardiac Rhythm Disorders
The B1 and B9 vitamins also have a protective role on the heart. The folic acid relaxes your blood vessels by preventing hypertension. Whereas the B1 vitamin prevents the occurrence of cardiac rhythm disorders.
Combats Stress and Eliminates Headaches
You can benefit from these effects because pistachios contain magnesium and vitamin B6 involved in the proper functioning of your nerve cells.
I recommend you to consume between 50 and 80 g raw pistachios per day, until the problem is solved.
Helps you have an excellent bowel movement.
The frequent consumption of pistachios has shown to exhibit this benefit. That’s because they are rich in dietary fibers.
Decreases your risk of developing diabetes.
Pistachios also have the ability to convert carbohydrates into glucose and other nutrients. Thus, maintaining blood glucose levels within normal parameters.
Helps to prevent macular degeneration.
If you want to avoid blindness after the age of 65, then you should snack on pistachios as soon as you can. These nuts can improve and maintain the health of your eyes due to two key components (zeaxanthin and lutein).
