Macadamia nuts are higher in saturated fat than most nuts, so take it easy on them. The USDA recommends taking in only  8 percent of your calories from saturated fats. But don't give up on them entirely. Macadamia nuts are a good source of magnesium and potassium, which helps promote muscle building and healthy heart functions. Plus, they've been shown to boost energy levels.(16)
