Figs provide phenomenal amounts of energy and vitality to the body, and aid in the repair and restoration of the digestive, cardiovascular, lymphatic, reproductive, muscular, immune, and skeletal system. Figs are one of the most alkaline fruits available and are rich in minerals such as calcium, iron, potassium, selenium, and zinc. In fact, figs are one the highest sources of readily assimilable calcium in the plant world which makes them a great choice to help prevent osteoporosis and their potassium content can help to prevent hypertension as well.
Macadamia nuts are a rich source of energy and are packed with essential minerals, vitamins, and heart healthy mono-unsaturated fatty acids such as oleic acid. They're an excellent source of iron, magnesium, zinc, selenium, and B-complex vitamins. They also contain flavonoids which are compounds that protect the body from free radical damage and diseases such as cancer. They can also provide protection from strokes and coronary artery disease, and be of help in lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol and increasing HDL (good) cholesterol in the blood.
