Similarly to almonds, pistachios may improve cholesterol levels — eating 2–3 ounces (56–84 grams) of pistachios a day may help increase "good" HDL cholesterol.
Also, pistachios may help improve other heart disease risk factors, including blood pressure, weight and oxidative status. Oxidative status refers to blood levels of oxidized chemicals, which can contribute to heart disease.
What’s more, pistachios may help reduce the rise in blood sugar after a meal.
