Did you know February is Heart Health Month? One in three American adults (over 92 million) are currently living with cardiovascular disease, which remains the leading cause of death in the US. While early diagnosis and treatments have helped boost survival rates to 50% for adults, February is a great reminder to practice those healthy lifestyle habits. Refraining from smoking, maintaining a healthy weight and keeping blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol under control can help prevent cardiovascular disease. When it comes to a healthy diet, studies have also shown adding one powerhouse snack to your daily mix can offer multiple heart-friendly benefits:
Nutrient-dense pistachios are packed with good-for-you fats, alongside plant-based compounds that may act as antioxidants, including vitamin E, polyphenols, and the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin – all of which may help to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol levels and contribute to a strong heart and healthy blood vessels.
