Heart Healthy Pistachios

Compared to other nuts, pistachios are high in vitamin E, beta-carotene and antioxidants. Eating two servings of pistachios a day can lower your vascular constriction during stress, making things easier on your heart. Pistachios can also lower systolic blood pressure in people with high cholesterol.*

90% of the fat found in pistachios is considered “good fat,” and pairing this snack with a protein can help you feel fuller longer. A half-cup is a typical serving of pistachios.
