Macadamia Nut Oil – 250ml
Macadamia Nut Oil Benefits:
One standout characteristic of macadamia nut oil is that it is rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids while noticeably low in saturated fatty acids. This is what makes it heart-healthy, much like olive oil and coconut oil. As it turns out, such a fatty acids profile is capable of lowering the LDL cholesterol, otherwise known as the bad cholesterol, in the blood.
Macadamia nut oil has a properly balanced omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids content as well, which is at 1-to-1 ratio. Both are considered essential fatty acids, which simply means they are not manufactured by the body, and consequently have to be supplemented through the diet. Omega-3 acts as an anti-inflammatory, while omega-6 functions more as a pro-inflammatory. It is for this reason a proper balance of these essential fatty acids has to be maintained, otherwise chronic diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, and cardiovascular diseases may develop. Including macadamia nut oil on a regular basis in your diet should then help achieve this crucial essential fatty acids balance.
