In the resent years, unique insights have been gained into the possible role of the pistachio nut in maintaining health and preventing many diseases. Many studies have been carried out to evaluate the possible effect of nut intake on body composition, metabolic, inflammatory, and oxidative stress parameters. As pistachio nuts are so very rich in fat content that can be oxidized, their skin contains many antioxidants. The in vivo experiments carried out in humans on the impact of pistachio nuts on human health are reviewed in this study.
