Pistachios: No Ordinary Snack

Going nuts for nutrition? Try pistachios.

Packed with protein, fiber, antioxidants and potassium, this tree nut can help support cardiovascular health, according to researchers.

Pistachios contain phytosterols. These nuts can elevate healthy HDL cholesterol levels when eaten as part of a diet low in saturated fat.

But like all good things – use moderation.

A single serving of pistachios is about 1 ounce or 49 kernels with 160 calories, according to Pistachio Health, an online source for information about pistachios.
