Reasons to Include Macadamias in Your Daily Diet
Let’s talk macadamia nuts! Other tree nuts often get placed in the limelight so we thought it high time we brief the world on the benefits of our first-class macadamias. Previously, macadamias where hard to find on the shelf, and when you did they were costly due to lack of supply chains and tasted mediocre. Sourced from South Africa, the world’s macadamia nut capital, our products hero this delightful, nutrient-dense nut. By working closely with our partners, we aim to meet the growing demand for macadamias by making them more accessible for everyone to enjoy their decadent taste and range of health benefits.
Macadamias and macadamia-based products are quickly becoming a favourite for many living health-conscious lifestyles, from vegans to those following paleo and keto-friendly diets due to being naturally plant-based, promoting metabolic health and assisting with diabetes and insulin resistance. Plus, they’re delicious!
Here are some reasons you should be including macadamias in your diet:
Macadamias are loaded with health benefits that make them a superior nut in both taste and nutritional value. Unlike other inflammatory-high, lectin-containing nuts, macadamias are gut-friendly, providing a nutritional powerhouse of antioxidants, minerals and essential nutrients.
Macadamias are a rare source of Omega 7 which is good for skin health and collagen regeneration, promoting metabolic health and aiding diabetes and insulin resistance.
Macadamia nuts are naturally low in carbohydrates which assist in weight management and the control of blood glucose levels.
Containing lower levels of lectins, macadamias are also known for aiding digestion and reducing inflammation, assisting in keeping the gut healthy.
Packed with heart-healthy oils and fats, macadamias aid in lowering heart risk and can protect the heart from disease.
In a recent study completed by the Noakes Foundation, the research found that macadamia nut oil has more beneficial effects on human health when compared with coconut and olive oil.
