#Beauty #Health #Health #

1. BENEFITS ON THE SKIN

Great for signs of aging skin. One of the antioxidants is squalene. It is rare and has a particularly strong impact on our skin. Squalene is a naturally occurring antioxidant in our body, but adding more through this nut oil can help reduce oxidative stress on the body’s fats and the skin.

2. ENERGY LEVELS

This nut-oil gives you a quick boost of energy to the body, something which the oil can also provide.

3. STRENGTHENS THE HAIR

This oil penetrates hair more efficiently than some other oils, like mineral oil. Mineral oil can build up on your scalp.

4. RETAINS HEALTHY FATS

Although this isn’t a definitive health benefit, this Australian nut oil has a higher smoke point than other vegetable oils, like olive oil. Therefore, when you’re cooking with it, you are far less likely to burn off the beneficial fats, which are the main reason why you are using the oil in the first place.

macadamia nut oil beauty dra martha castro noriega mexico

5. GREAT FOR COOKING

It is excellent for cooking because of its high smoke point of over 400 degrees Fahrenheit. It is typically higher than olive oil. This is important, because when oil begins to burn, it denatures and loses many of its health benefits, possibly become carcinogenic.
