MultiVu Video Feed: NEW RESEARCH PUBLISHED IN THE AMERICAN JOURNAL OF CLINICAL NUTRITION FINDS PISTACHIOS IMPROVE RISK FACTORS FOR HEART DISEASE
Date:9/25/2008

**September is National Cholesterol Awareness Month**

Looking for a heart-healthy snack nut? Pistachios may be just what the cardiologist ordered. According to a new groundbreaking study published in the September issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers from Penn State University found that consuming just a small amount of pistachios improved several markers for cardiovascular disease, including lowering harmful blood lipids and impacting enzymes involved in removing unhealthy cholesterol in the bloodstream.

High total blood cholesterol, high LDL-cholesterol and low HDL cholesterol levels are major risk factors for coronary heart disease, the number one cause of death in the United States. One in every two American adults has high blood cholesterol levels, and one American dies from heart disease every 37 seconds. In this new study, participants added either one serving (about 1 1/2ounces) or two servings (about 3 ounces) of pistachios to their typical diet for four weeks. Results were impressive: total cholesterol, LDL levels and non-HDL levels of cholesterol were all significantly lower on the diets that contained pistachios.

The full study is available at http://www.pistachiohealth.com, an online resource for pistachio nutrition and health information.
