Health Benefits of Pistachios

2. Mineral Rich: A 100-gram serving of pistachios provides a recommended daily intake of 144% copper, 54% phosphorous, 52% iron, 52% manganese, 30% magnesium and 20% zinc. These minerals aid in bone formation, energy production, red blood cell utilization and blood pressure control.
3. Powerful Antioxidants: Just 100 grams of pistachios provides 150% of vitamin E’s RDA. The nuts are also rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, These antioxidants contribute towards eye, skin and hair health. They also slow down rancidity, allowing you to buy roasted unsalted pistachios in bulk.
4. Weight Loss: A combination between low calories, high protein and significant fiber content make pistachios a great snack for dieters. Fiber and protein promote a feeling of fullness, leading to low calorie intake during meals.
