WP_20150507_006

This oatmeal is similar to the Pecan Oatmeal, but the taste is really different beacuse each nut has a peculiar taste. Macadamias come from Kenya, New Zeland, Autralia, Brazil and Indonesia. These nuts contain no cholesterol. The mono-unsaturated fatty such as oleic and palmitoleci acids reduce cholesterol (lDL) and increas the HDL cholesterol (the good one). They contain a high quantity of selenium which is a mineral that is a cardio protective micro mineraland an important antioxidant co factor for the enzyme glutathione peroxidase. Beside selenium, thay also have copper, iron, calcium, phosphorous and magnesium. Macadamias are also rich in the B-complex vitamins and dietary fiber. Antioxidants in this surprising nuts destroy free radicals. So you better include macadamias in your daily diet for a healthier life and organism.
