Macadamia nuts are high in healthy fats and may help those trying to lose weight. One serving of macadamia nuts also contains dietary fiber, protein, manganese, thiamin, and a good amount of copper.

1.Lower heart disease risk

Studies have found that eating tree nuts, including macadamia nuts, can lower the risk factors for heart disease.

For example, a 2007 study in males with high cholesterol found that after 4 weeks of eating macadamia nuts, they had lower risk factors for coronary artery disease.

 2.Prevent cancer

Macadamia nuts contain a type of vitamin E called tocotrienols.

Tocotrienols may have powerful anticancer abilities, according to some research. Macadamia nuts contain a significant amount of tocotrienols.

Macadamia nuts also contain plant compounds called flavonoids, which can fight cancer by destroying damaging free radicals in the body.

3.May prevent weight gain

Macadamia nuts and their oil are some of the richest sources of palmitoleic acid, a monounsaturated fat also called omega-7.

4.They stave off hunger

Macadamia nuts contain protein, high amounts of beneficial fats, and fiber. Together, these nutrients can help a person feel full for longer.

The fat takes longer to digest, and protein and fiber help prevent large blood sugar changes that can make a person feel hungry.
