Take Pistachio Nuts To Reduce Stress, High Blood Pressure and Lighten the Load on your Heart!

Pistachio Nuts and Stress Reduction:

Here’s a great tasty way to reduce stress – eat a handful of pistachio nuts every day.  This may sound nutty, but it’s true.

Nutritionists at Penn State University had students eat pistachio nuts daily for a month. They found this kept the students’ blood pressure down in stressful situations.

When they upped the amount to two handfuls every day, the students’ arteries relaxed, which may lighten how hard the heart has to work.

So…start shelling those pistachios!
