Why Eat Macadamia Nuts?
Macadamia Nuts are what I refer to as a “Keto Perfect Food”.
They have been studied to promote weight loss because of their high monounsatturated fat content which is predominately oleic acid.
Include one serving of macadamia nuts or nut butter in your diet each day to maximize health benefits over the long term.
Macadamia nuts predominately
contain monounsaturated fatty acids which are good for heart health. They also help reduce cholesterol and lower triglycerides. Proven by science.
For Healthy Bones
Macadamia nuts are a good source of phosphorus, manganese and and magnesium which support bone health as well as the absorption of nutrients. One serving provides 58% of your daily manganese!
Healthy Fat Profile
Macadamia nuts provide one of the highest levels of monounsatturated fat oleic acid while still being low in carbs. Oleic acid is a omega-9 fatty acid which has been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke!
For A Healthy Gut
Macadamia nuts contain both soluble and insoluble fiber which promotes gut health by helping you feel full and assisting your body in the removal of toxins.. One ounce contains 3.9 grams of carbohydrate. 2.4 g of this is fiber.
