Macadamia nut is native to Australia and has buttery, creamy texture. Like other nuts, it contains loads of healthy monounsaturated fats, making it beneficial for heart health and lowering cholesterol levels. It is rich in antioxidants fighting inflammation, especially flavonoids, as well as vitamin E. Palmitoleic acid or omega-7 fatty acid found in these nuts is good for skin and hair growth, heart health, prevents high blood pressure and diabetes and promotes fullness. Like other nuts, it aids weight management due to high protein and fiber and low carbohydrate content. Despite high fat content, some of the fats don’t get absorbed during digestion.
