Pistachios for Health

January 12, 2021 1 min read

After watching a series of Youtube videos on the health benefits of pistachios, we are even more appreciative of the wonders of this little nut.  We learnt an extensive list of fun facts.  Here are the key reasons why buying Activated Pistachios from 2die4 Live Foods is one of the best additions to healthy daily eating.

  • Lowest oxalates of any other nut, which reduces the risk of kidney stones
  • Lower in cholesterol, and full of heart-healthy fats
  • Two key antioxidants - beta carotene and tocopherols which help protect the cells from free radical damage and oxidation (which causes aging)
  • High levels of B6 also support reducing swelling and inflammation in the body and boosts the immune system
  • Rich in Thiamine, B1, which helps calm the nervous system by reducing stress and anxiety

 

Pistachios

 

  • Rich in copper trace mineral which helps with improving concentration.
  • Copper also helps to build more collagen, which further improves the health of the skin
  • Rich in an amino acid called arginine, which relaxes blood vessels and improves blood flow and lowering the risk of heart disease.
  • Potassium levels help control blood sugar levels, reducing the risk of weight gain and diabetes
  • Boost energy levels with the high levels of ALA, a healthy fatty acid, also reducing inflammation.
  • Balance hormones with the Vitamin E found in pistachios
