How are pistachios great for healthy and nourished skin and hair?

Antioxidants have long been known to provide anti-aging benefits.


Normal metabolisms of daily life – everything from eating, breathing, and exercising to the toxins we encounter in the environment – can generate free radicals in the body. Free radicals attack healthy body cells and this damage is thought to contribute to inflammation and aging in addition to chronic health conditions, including heart disease and cancer. Health professionals recommend antioxidants from food sources to help protect healthy cells from free radical damage in the body.


While certain fruits and vegetables are often thought of as high-antioxidant foods, a new study conducted by Cornell University and published in the journal, Nutrients, produced surprising results.  Pistachios have a very high antioxidant capacity, among the highest when compared to values reported in research of many foods commonly known for their antioxidant capacity, such as blueberries, pomegranates, cherries, and beets.


The researchers believe that the high antioxidant activity of pistachios may be due to the unique compounds in pistachios including vitamin E, carotenoids, phenolics and flavonoids.


So, consumption of antioxidants rich foods like pistachios helps in antiaging, maintaining healthy skin, preventing free radicals from damaging and oxidizing the cells in our bodies.


Several studies have shown that plant antioxidants have the potential to protect animals from oxidative damage. Emerging research using a model of human skin suggests that the antioxidants in pistachios may help to protect skin exposed to ultraviolet radiation. Eating pistachios can also help improve one’s physical appearance as the good quality biotin nourishes the hair and its roots and the Vitamin E content helps fight premature aging of the skin.


American pistachios are easily available on all major e-commerce platforms or with major dry fruit retailers across India. You can find them by simply searching or asking for "California pistachios" and chose from the many brands that sell them in India.
