Sesame Seeds has been used as a source of food and oil for centuries. Sesame Seeds has a very high oil content, which makes them resistant to rancidity. The seeds have a very high source of copper and manganese, they also have a good source of calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc, molybdenum, selenium and dietary fiber. Sesame seeds have two unique substances, called sesamin and sesamolin. These substances are special beneficial fibers, called lignans and they have been shown to lower cholesterol. Lignans also help to prevent high blood pressure and protect the liver from oxidative damage.
Benefits of Sesame SeedsFor this review, I received one bag of Organic Sesame Seeds! I knew Sesame Seeds were good for you, but I wasn't sure how. After doing some research, I found that they are very nutritious for you. The high levels of copper can provide relief for rheumatoid arthritis, it helps reduce the pain and swelling. There is also a enzyme called lysyl oxidase, that's needed for linking collagen and elastin, which provides structure, strength and elasticity in blood vessels, plus in bones and joints.
Sesame Seeds also has a high level of magnesium, which provides support for your vascular and respiratory health. I already knew that magnesium was a BIG benefit for heart health, it helps to lower high blood pressure, which could help prevent heart attacks, strokes and diabetic heart disease. Magnesium also helps to prevent migraines and helps women sleep better, while going through menopause. Then there's the high calcium content, that helps prevent colon cancer, osteoporosis, Migraine and PMS. Plus sesame seeds have zinc in them, which is a great way of eating bone mineral density.
The fat-soluble lignin, with phytoestrogenic properties known as sesamin in Sesame Seeds has been studied for inhibiting the proliferation of a wide range of cancer cells, including:
- Multiple Myleoma
- Colon Cancer
- Prostate Cancer
- Breast Cancer
- Lung Cancer
- Pancreatic Cancer
- Lung Cancer
This is one seed that I will add to my daily regimen! There are many ways you can consume Sesame Seeds, you can add them to recipes, sprinkle them on salads and grind them for smoothies.
