All nuts are healthy and are an especially important part of our nutrition. Almonds are by most of us well known to be of major importance What I want to remind you about in this short mail is that one should not forget pistachio’s [ known as fistukim in Israel.] They are probably capable of helping open closed blood vessels and they may be one of the few foods, I think, which can bring down the level of Lp(a), a very problematic fat

If it is high in a blood test it may be a significant risk factor for heart disease, strokes and more.

But if you have an elevated level of lipoprotein [a], then don’t get overly worried but adopt the healthiest lifestyle you can.
