Pistachio nuts originated in the Middle East. They are naturally low in sodium and monounsaturated fats and high in magnesium, all of which make them an ideal food to include as part of a blood pressure lowering diet. The slim, oblong nuts range from pale yellow to dark green and have a unique flavor and scent.

Pistachios are also useful in supporting healthy cholesterol levels and contain more antioxidant power per 100 grammes than blueberries, blackberries and pomegranate juice. Pistachios can be kept fresh in the fridge in an airtight container, or frozen for storage of up to a year.
