*High in antioxidants
They prevent cell damage and play a key role in reducing the risk of diseases such as cancer. Pistachios contain more antioxidants than most other nuts and seeds. Among nuts, pistachios have the highest content of lutein and zeaxanthin, both of which are very important antioxidants for eye health
*Lowers cholesterol levels and high blood pressure
Pistachios may reduce your risk of heart disease in various ways. In addition to being high in antioxidants, pistachios may lower high cholesterol and improve blood pressure, thus lowering your risk of heart disease. Many studies on pistachios and blood lipids are conducted by replacing part of the calories in a diet with pistachios. Up to 67% of these studies have shown reductions in total and LDL (bad) cholesterol and increases in HDL (good) cholesterol
*Promote healthy gut bacteria
Pistachios are high in fiber, with one serving containing 3 grams. Fiber moves through your digestive system mostly undigested, and some types of fiber are digested by the good bacteria in your gut, acting as prebiotics. Gut bacteria then ferment the fiber and convert it into short-chain fatty acids, which may have several health benefits, including a reduced risk of developing digestive disorders, cancer, and heart disease
*Low in calories yet high in protein
While eating nuts has many health benefits, they’re typically high in calories. Fortunately, pistachios are among the lowest-calorie nuts. One ounce (28 grams) of pistachios contains 159 calories, compared with 185 calories in walnuts. With protein comprising about 20% of their weight, pistachios are second only to almonds when it comes to protein content. They also have a higher ratio of essential amino acids the building blocks of protein in comparison to any other nut.
