Latest Pistachio Study Reveals Significant Reduction in Markers of Inflammation - an Emerging Risk Factor in Heart Disease
Date:10/27/2008

dministration (FDA) announced that eating most nuts, such as pistachios, may help reduce the risk of heart disease when consumed as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol. Since then, the Western Pistachio Association has committed to learning more about the nutritional benefits of pistachios and the nuts' impact on other health issues affecting Americans today.

In recent years, other research has shown the beneficial effects of consuming pistachios as part of a daily diet. The larger study conducted by Penn State originally released last spring and presented again in March 2008 showed that eating pistachios may reduce your body's response to the stresses of everyday life. The Penn State study entitled, "Pistachios Reduce Blood Pressure and Vascular Responses to Acute Stress in Healthy Adults," led by nutrition scientist Dr. Sheila G. West, found that lifestyle changes, along with a healthy diet and exercise, can lessen the biological reactions to stress. Pistachios, when consumed in both 3 ounce and 1.5 ounce servings, resulted in study participants experiencing a significant reduction of the biological effects of acute stress. During the diets supplemented with pistachios, subjects had lower blood pressure during stress. This study is relevant because lowering blood pressure may reduce the risk for stroke and heart disease.

The University of Toronto has also studied the effects of pistachios on diabetes -- another major health issue in America today affecting 20.8 million children and adults -- or 7 percent of the U.S. population (according to the American Diabetes Association). "Glycemic Response of Pistachios -- A Dose Response Study and Effect of Pistachios Consumed with Different Common Carbohydrate Foods on Postprandial Glycemia," led by University of Toronto's Dr. Cyril Kendall and Dr. David Jenkins, found that pistachios, when consumed with some common high-carbohydrate foods, may actually slow the absorption of carbohydrates into
