A study published in the journal Hypertension examined the influence of pistachios on blood pressure in those with high blood fat levels. Participants were given a standard American diet for two weeks, then put on a diet where 10% or 20% of calories came from pistachios (1 serving of pistachios per day and 2 servings of pistachios per day, respectively). Participants on both diets saw a reduction in blood pressure, though those eating 1 serving per day had a lower reduction. Although more research is needed, there’s no harm in adding 1 serving of pistachios into your calorie-controlled eating plan.
