Activated Organic Pistachios by 2die4 Live Foods
2die4�s Organic Activated Pistachios are grown in Spain. Pistachios contain fewer calories and more potassium and vitamin K per serving than other nuts. The pistachios are soaked (sprouted) to release their enzyme inhibitors, activated nuts are more easily digested than raw or roasted nuts, allowing for greater absorption of nutrients. Pistachios are great for cardiovascular health and naturally contain no cholesterol. They have the natural ability to regulate cholesterol levels and not only reduce LDL ('bad') cholesterol but increase HDL ('good') cholesterol.
The Pistachio (Pistacia vera L) is related botanically to the Cashew and Mango. The tree is native to western Asia and Asia Minor and evidence has been found in this region that suggests the nuts were being used for food as early as 7,000 B.C.... The trees grew wild in high desert regions and legend has it that lovers met beneath the trees to hear the pistachios crack open on moonlit nights for the promise of good fortune.
