Similarly to almonds, pistachios may improve cholesterol levels. Eating 2–3 ounces of pistachios a day may help increase "good" HDL cholesterol (24).
Also, pistachios may help improve other risk factors for heart disease, including blood pressure, weight and oxidative status. Oxidative status refers to blood levels of oxidized chemicals, which can contribute to heart disease (25, 26, 27, 28).
Furthermore, pistachios may help reduce the rise in blood sugar after a meal (29)
