Nuts and fibre go hand in hand when it comes to helping with digestion. We know we need to eat fibre rich foods in order to create a healthy and balanced digestive system. Macadamias and other nuts are not only high in fibre, but also possess qualities which are essential to a healthy and balanced intestinal tract.
