pistachios

The pistachio is a nutrient-dense nut with a heart-healthy fatty-acid profile

 

The pistachio is a nutrient-dense nut with a heart-healthy fatty-acid profile as well as protein, dietary fiber, potassium, magnesium, vitamin K, γ-tocopherol, and a number of phytochemicals.

 

The pistachio's unique green and purple kernel color is a result of its lutein and anthocyanin content. Among nuts, pistachios contain the highest levels of potassium, γ-tocopherol, vitamin K, phytosterols, and xanthophyll carotenoids.

 

Five published randomized cardiovascular trials have shown that pistachios promote heart-healthy blood lipid profiles..
