Sesame Seed

Sesame contains various essential nutrients. The main nutrients in the sesame seeds are monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, protein, fiber, calcium, iron and vitamin E. The two main fatty acids in sesame are Oleic and Linoleic fatty acids that are rich in omega 6. Oleic acid aids in lowering of the harmful cholesterol (Low Density Lipo-protein) and promotes good cholesterol (High Density Lipo-protein) in the body.

Linoleic acid (Polyunsaturated fatty acids) helps to transfer blood cholesterol and is needed as a building component of lipo-protein.

Since our body cannot produce this fatty acid on its own, we can only obtain it through our diets. And if you are worried about the amount of cholesterol that you’ll find, you simply can’t find any in sesame, whether it’s the seeds, or the oil.

There are also natural antioxidants present in sesame. One of which is Tocopherol, or more commonly known as, Vitamin E. Vitamin E is a fat-soluble antioxidant that protects the body from harmful oxidizing compounds. It is also a benefit to the heart and the nervous system and helps reserves old age to maintain youth. Other antioxidants present include sesamin, sesamolin and sesamol.
