Pistachio nuts deliver high value nutrition via 30 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients as well as being a good source of phenolic compounds (anti-oxidant benefits), fibre and protein.
Pistachio nuts are a good source of copper, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and B6. (Potassium-packed foods help your body maintain a normal balance between sodium and potassium, which in turn helps regulate blood pressure.) They are also the only nut to have significant amounts of the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin which may reduce the risk of macular degeneration. Studies show that eating Pistachio nuts lowers cholesterol and promotes heart health.
