Pistachios (Pistacia vera) are oily seeds.

People also commonly pair them with various meats, fish, and cheeses. Raw Pistachios are rich in vitamins, healthy fats, fiber, proteins, antioxidants, potassium, and are useful for the stomach, cough, skin, hair, pregnancy, and children. Consume them fresh for optimal benefits, as roasted and stored pistachios may lose some properties.

Why Raw Pistachios Are Beneficial

The Role of Raw Pistachio in Traditional Rural and Chinese Medicine

In traditional medicine, pistachios, with their warm and dry nature, strengthen the stomach, treat diarrhea, strengthen nerves, calm the heart, increase memory and mental strength, prevent cancer, open liver channels, and relieve cough. You can combine them with vinegar, sour pomegranate, or apricot leaves to remove the heat and dryness of pistachios.
Proteins are one of the essential substances for pregnancy, as they aid in the growth of fetal muscles and tissues. Therefore, fresh pistachios are also useful for pregnancy due to their high protein content. As mentioned, raw pistachios reduce the level of bad cholesterol and increase the good cholesterol in the blood, making it effective for controlling fat levels even during pregnancy. Since some pregnant women may suffer from constipation, pistachios can prevent it because of their high fiber content. Furthermore, the presence of vitamins A and E in pistachios helps improve and prevent infectious problems.

Copper in pistachios increases hemoglobin, improves blood flow, aids iron absorption, improving anemia. The high protein and fiber content satiates for a longer period, aiding in weight loss. Pistachios contain high protein, few calories, and few saturated and unsaturated fats, making them suitable for a diet.
