We hear it all the time, "Macadamias have too much fat to be healthy." Unfortunately, that's wrong. Not all fats are bad . . . and health is not judged by fats alone.

The good news is that macadamias are filled with the good fats. Monounsaturated fat has been shown to lower cholesterol levels and help the body burn fat more easily. Macadamia oil, for instance, has around an 85% monounsaturated fat content (that's very high).

In fact, according to the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA):

Supportive but not conclusive research shows that eating 1.5 ounces per day of macadamia nuts, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol and not resulting in increased intake of saturated fat or calories may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. See nutrition information for fat and calorie content.

So, evidence suggests that macadamias can help prevent heart disease and clean out our arteries. Low in sodium, but a strong source of protein, calcium, and fiber; macadamias promote a host of health benefits including healthier skin and hair, clearing out toxins, and nourishing the nervous system.

Macadamia nuts tend to be a more filling snack, so eating just a few can curb your snacking more efficiently than something high in sugar.

Potential Health Benefits:
  • Helps prevent heart disease
  • Cleans out arteries
  • Good source of protein, calcium, and fiber
  • Promotes skin and hair health
  • Cleanses toxins
  • Good for nervous system
  • Helps to curb snacking
