Pistas good for ‘performance’

Eating a handful of pistachio nuts every day for as little as three weeks can boost men's sex drive, research says.

The little green nibbles are known to have health benefits like helping to lower cholesterol but a new study has revealed they can boost performance between the sheets.

Tests on men who struggled to satisfy their partners in the bedroom found nature's love nuts reached the parts that other sex aids were unable to revive.

The Turkish study on 17 impotent married men aged from 38-59-years-old , found eating around 3.5 ounces of pistachio nuts every day for three weeks improved their ability to romp.

Carried out at the Ataturk Teaching and Research Hospital in Ankara, Turkey and published in The International Journal of Impotence Research2, the experiments measured sexual desire , pleasure and satisfaction.

The report said: "Study participants saw a significant improvement on International Index of Erectile Function scores."

Specialist Dr. Thomas W. Hopkins who sat on the National Advisory Panel for Erectile Dysfunction said: "Pistachios have been considered an aphrodisiac in some folklore. To my knowledge, this is the first study that lends support for this belief. We know that pistachios can improve blood cholesterol levels and can be part of a successful weight management programme."

"Men, especially, may want to consider substituting pistachios for other snack foods."
