Pistachios are known as "the skinny nut," as they only contain about 3 calories apiece, are low in fat, and have a high amount of fiber. Pistachio nuts are a great source of vitamin B6, protein, potassium, and thiamin. A study from Pennsylvania State University reported that eating pistachios might help prevent high blood pressure by reducing cholesterol levels in people who have cardiovascular risks. Additionally, data presented at the American Association for Cancer Research Frontiers Conference showed that a diet that includes a daily dose of pistachios could help decrease the risk of lung and other cancers. A 1-ounce serving of pistachio nuts amounts to 160 calories, and China leads the world in total pistachio consumption.
