Their high dose of antioxidants help prevent cell damage and oxidative stress caused not just by free radicals, but also the toxic environment in which we live. Macadamia also reduces the likelihood of heart disease and stroke. Around 80% of the fat is monounsaturated, which is linked with reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.
