Why it works

Overall, macadamia is a healthy source of unsaturated fats, vitamin E, and antioxidants. Macadamia oil’s high levels of monounsaturated fat, which, according to the American Heart Association (AHA), can lower levels of bad cholesterol (LDL), thereby reducing a person’s risk of heart attack and stroke. Additionally, the oil’s high levels of oleic acids protect against oxidative stress related to aging, while the vitamin E in macadamia oil may offer your body protections against cancer, cardiovascular disease, and neurological diseases.
