Health benefits of pistachios

Overall, pistachios are the healthiest nuts around. Pistachios are:

   - a good source of unsaturated fatty acids
  -  high in several antioxidants, like γ-tocopherol, β-carotene, lutein, selenium, flavonoids, and phytoestrogens
   - high in vitamins and minerals like phytosterols, potassium, vitamin B-6, β-carotene, and lutein, zeaxanthin, and selenium
  -  high in magnesium, calcium, vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin B, vitamin K, and folate
  -  high in protein (just 100 grams of pistachios contains 20 grams of protein — more than most protein bars on the market!)
   - high in fiber
