Macadamia nuts are considered a superfood. Here are five reasons why you should not only make this twisted classic, but add Macadamia nuts to your dishes wherever you can implement them:
- Macadamia nuts are a great source of antioxidants and flavonoids, which aid against inflammation.
- Macadamia nuts provide Tocotrienols, which are a form of vitamin E. This helps prevent some types of cancer and may also help lower your cholesterol.
- A single serving of macadamia nuts contains dietary fiber, manganese, thiamin, protein, and copper.
- Macadamia nuts are abundant with monounsaturated fats, which can help reduce the risk of metabolic syndrome, especially for those with type 2 diabetes. Monounsaturated fats have also been linked to increased heart health which can lower the risk of strokes and heart attacks.
- The soluble fiber provided from macadamia nuts can function as a prebiotic, which helps feed the bacteria in your gut that produce short-chain fatty acids, which ultimately can lead to reduced inflammation and reduced symptoms for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
