Go Nuts with Hellas Farms
Do you love nuts? I love to munch on them every chance I get. They are a great snack. Recently, I began a diet, of which I am proud to say that I have lost over 20 pounds. On this particular diet, pistachios were one of two kinds of nuts that I could eat as a snack. But, did you know that pistachios are actually a type of fruit? You can eat this fruit as is or add it to a number of different dishes and snacks.
The USDA notes that the consumption of pistachios is on the rise, partly because they have a bounty of health benefits. You will get a number of nutrients from a single serving of this fruit that will improve your overall health and aid with specific conditions. Knowing what pistachios are particularly good for is sure to make them want to add them to your diet. According to the article 10 Health Benefits of Pistachios posted on the Daily Natural Remedies website, pistachios improve your nervous system, prevent Macular Degeneration, promote healthy skin, anti-aging, reduce cholesterol, increase blood oxygen levels, protect against cancer, provides phosphorus to keep your bones strong, increases energy, and provides minerals. Scientific evidence also suggests but does not prove that eating 1.5 ounces per day of most nuts, such as pistachios, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease.
