Being rich in fiber and other minerals like magnesium and potassium – these nuts improve heart health. They help lower cholesterol and blood pressure. The fiber in these nuts also aids in diabetes treatment. And the antioxidants rejuvenate your skin and hair.
Promote Heart Health
Studies have shown that people consuming a diet high in macadamia nuts have the same amounts of cholesterol as those on a low-fat diet. Macadamia nuts are also rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, which can make platelets less sticky and less likely to form clots in blood vessels. This prevents heart attack or stroke.
Another report by the American Heart Association states that men whose diets included a large quantity of nuts had a decreased risk of death by heart disease. This is because the monounsaturated fats in nuts (including macadamia nuts) can improve lipid blood profiles.
The nuts are also believed to lower blood pressure – thereby contributing to heart health. Certain sources attribute this quality of macadamia nuts to their potassium content.
Improve Blood Sugar Levels
Nuts, in general, are known to relieve the impact of certain health issues that come along with diabetes. This statement is further proved by a Canadian study – which talks about how tree nuts (including macadamia nuts) can improve glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes.
Macadamia nuts have a unique profile of macro and micronutrients and other bioactive compounds that help improve blood sugar levels and counter the ill effects of diabetes. Another report suggests that though macadamia nuts have fats, they are okay to be consumed during diabetes. As these nuts contain monounsaturated fatty acids, they help lower bad cholesterol.
Aid Weight Loss
Macadamia nuts are low in carbohydrates (1 ounce of the nuts offers 4 grams of carbs), but they are slightly higher in calories (1 ounce of the nuts contains about 205 calories). But worry not – having about 2 ounces of the nuts can inch you a little further towards your weight loss goals.
Another reason is the fiber content. The nuts are good sources of fiber and having a few every morning with breakfast can keep your hunger pangs at bay.
Improve Bone Health
Macadamia nuts are good sources of calcium, magnesium, and potassium – the three minerals that help prevent bone demineralization. And they are low in sodium too, which only makes things better.
The phosphorus in the nuts promotes mineralization of teeth and bones. And if you know someone suffering from kidney disease, here is some good news. Kidney disease can affect the body’s ability to absorb calcium and manganese, leading to bone disease. But the manganese found in macadamia nuts can prevent this from happening.
Support Gut Health
Oh, by the way, the nuts contain both soluble and insoluble fiber – these flush toxins out of the body and aid digestion. The nuts are particularly rich in copper that supports the enzymatic reactions that improve digestive health.
One study suggests that consumption of macadamia nuts can help relieve inflammation, which can otherwise cause coronary heart disease. Another study talks about the efficacy of macadamia nut oil in treating inflammation.
Macadamia nuts are also good sources of alpha-linolenic acid, a type of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acid that helps treat inflammation and prevents subsequent arthritis.
Boost Healthy Fats
We already saw these nuts are rich in monounsaturated fats, the healthy fats.
Macadamia nuts are 75% fat, but most of that is the monounsaturated type. A typical US diet contains about 37% fat, and as per one study, replacing that fat with fat from macadamia nuts had dramatically improved lipid profiles.
Other reports also state that macadamia nuts boost HDL, the good cholesterol, and lower the levels of LDL, the bad cholesterol.
Improve Brain Health
Another important component of macadamia nuts that warrants your attention is oleic acid – which is the same healthy fat found in olive oil. This acid keeps the blood pressure low and prevents stroke, thereby preserving brain health.
Another acid in the nuts is palmitoleic acid, which also is an important component of myelin (myelin is a fatty layer that protects nerve cells in the brain).
A few other nutrients in macadamia nuts are copper, vitamin B1, manganese, and magnesium – all of which aid the production of healthy neurotransmitters.
Also, the omega-9 that these nuts contains helps improve mood. The fatty acid can even enhance memory and prevent several neurological diseases. One study talks about the importance of omega-9 in preventing Alzheimer’s disease.
Aid In Anaemia Treatment
Macadamia nuts contain some amount of iron, and this can help treat anemia and even prevent the condition. However, we advise you to include other iron-rich foods like spinach in your diet. Also, including vitamin C in your diet can improve iron absorption and help prevent anemia.
Offer An Energy Boost
The complex carbs these nuts are made of can spike your energy levels. And the fats can sustain the energy.
The monounsaturated fatty acids in macadamia nuts can accelerate fat metabolism. Consuming tree nuts, in general, has been linked to a reduced risk of metabolic syndrome.
Improve Skin Health
The essential fatty acids in macadamia nuts play a role in skin health, and this is particularly true with macadamia nut oil. The palmitoleic acid in the nuts is another essential fatty acid that hydrates the skin, promotes skin healing, and supports the health of cell membranes.
Applying the oil to your skin can render it a youthful glow. Though it is thick, it gets absorbed by the skin quite easily. It is important to note that there is some amount of palmitoleic acid naturally occurring on our skin – which diminishes with age. Application of this nut oil can replenish the skin with the essential acid.
The palmitoleic acid also helps delay skin aging. It prevents the early onset of the signs of aging like wrinkles and age spots.
The palmitoleic acid, once again, comes to the rescue here. It treats dry hair and strengthens the hair roots. Massaging your hair regularly with macadamia nut oil makes it shine, stimulates hair growth, and rebuilds hair elasticity.
The nut oil also prevents hair breakage by penetrating the scalp and improving the strength of the hair follicles. The oil also controls frizz. It hydrates the hair a
