Pistachio Nuts To Lower Stress

I would like to add another type of nut you should be adding to your diet for Type II Diabetes. It is the "Pistachio Nut".

According to an  article on , pistachio nuts may lower your risk of heart disease by lowering your overall cholesterol levels.Penny Chris Etherton PhD, ND of Pennsylvania State University's department of nutritional sciences, and colleagues recruited 10 men and 18 women, all healthy non-smokers to eat pistachio nuts.

The study showed that eating pistachio nuts decreased anti-oxidant levels in adults with high cholesterol.

A previous study showed eating pistachios also lowered lipids and lipoproteins, which are risk factors for heart disease. Their antioxidant value is especially noteworthy since oxidized low density lipoproteins, known as LDL or BAD cholesterol has been implicated in inflammation and build up of plaque inside blood vessels.

Pistachios also contain lutein (noted for good vision and skin health), beta-carotene (precursor to vitamin A), and gamma-tocopherol (form of vitamin E).

I don't expect everyone to understand all of that, including myself, however what is important is adding pistachios to your diet.


Matthew 8:2-3 "A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, Lord if you are willing, you can make me clean. Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. "I am willing",  he said. "Be clean"! Immediately he was cured of his leprosy."
