There can be universal benefits for the body from eating pistachios daily. Nutritionist and endocrinologist Elena Barredo said this in a commentary.

“These nuts are rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, which help lower cholesterol, and also contain vitamins A and E, which will help our skin look younger, support our immune system, and improve our eyesight. In addition, pistachios contain magnesium, which helps with stress and stabilizes blood pressure. These nuts are a good source of protein, so it is recommended to eat pistachios in case of deficiencies and low body weight,” Barredo said.

In addition, the doctor added that pistachios are quite high in calories due to fats, so they should not be overeaten. But people with pancreatic dysfunction should refrain from pistachios. Pistachios are also often heavily salted, so people with hypertension should choose nuts without salt.
