Macadamia

R306.00 /kg

Macadamia nuts are indigenous to Australia, originally found in the rain forest all along the coast of north-eastern Australia. While the trees had long been known to the aborigines, who called the macadamia kindal kindal, the first tree was propagated from seed by British colonist, Walter Hill, who was the director of the Botany Garden in Brisbane around 1857. Hill named the tree after his Scottish friend, John Macadam, who died in a ship injury before he was able to taste the nuts.

Health Benefits

Research has shown that palmitoleic acid, the omega-7 fatty acids found in macadamia nuts, sea buckthorn oil, and avocado oil may promote skin, nail, and hair health.
Research has shown that the nutrients and fats found in macadamia nuts may reduce the risk factors for heart disease.
Tocotrienols and flavonoids are present in nuts like macadamias, and research is emerging about these antioxidants supporting their role in fighting cancer cells.
According to one study, a tocotrienol-rich supplement protected brain cells against glutamate toxicity, since glutamate has been shown to play a role in Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
Research indicates that monounsaturated fatty acids (which are fatty acids found in macadamia nuts) may help reduce the risk of metabolic syndrome.
Macadamia nuts are packed with fiber, protein, and high amounts of quality fats. These nutrients play a role in keeping you feeling full (because eating fat is linked to a reduction in the hunger hormone, ghrelin).
