Macadamia

"Macadamias May Help Lower Bad Cholesterol"

Macadamias have an interesting nutritional composition, they are high in fiber, magnesium, copper, manganese and thiamin, and are a source of vitamin B6, niacin and minerals such as iron, phosphorus, potassium and selenium (1,2).

And, they could even help you look after your heart! Macadamias are a natural source of omega-7, a type of monounsaturated fat also known as healthy fat, which may help you reduce LDL “bad” cholesterol
(3).
