Here at Borna, we ♥LOVE♥ pistachios… not only for their taste and versatility but for their nutrition as well! Let’s dive into the heart of the matter…
♥Studies on the consumption of pistachios and heart health have yielded promising results, with lowered LDL (bad) cholesterol, and an overall improvement of the ratio between HDL (good) cholesterol and LDL (bad) cholesterol, which means a reduced risk of heart disease!
But what is it about pistachios that make them heart smart?
♥Unsaturated Fats: Pistachios contain monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, which have been shown to lower “bad” cholesterol level.
♥Fibre: A 30g snack pack of Borna pistachios contain 3.5g fibre, which is more than 10% of your daily recommendation! Fibre also helps to lower your cholesterol and helps you feel fuller longer.
And that’s just the beginning! Pistachios also contain high levels of certain vitamins, minerals, plant sterols and antioxidants compared to other nuts.
For anyone with a pulse on their heart health, many of the Borna products have no added salt and can be included in your daily diet.
