Consider the tiny sesame seed: so much power packed into such small space. Venerated for its flavor and health benefits since 1600 BC, sesame seeds are high in protein, manganese, B-vitamins, iron, magnesium, copper, calcium, and lignans. Lignans are a beneficial fiber with proven anti-cancer, antioxidant and antimicrobial benefits. The lignans in sesame seeds have been shown to help lower high blood pressure by reducing sodium levels in the body, and they exert a protective effect on the liver. Sesame seeds are also an excellent source of essential monounsaturated fatty acids, specifically, omega-3, omega 6 and omega-9. Fatty acids, which are known to reduce the risk for several cancers, provide extra protection against developing Alzheimer’s disease, and reduce the risk of coronary artery disease and stroke. Tiny, but powerful, sesame seeds (and sesame oil) help regulate blood sugar levels, a critical component in the fight against type 2 diabetes.
According to a study published in the journal, Nutrition Research, sesame seeds were shown to decrease LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Specifically, the fatty acids in sesame seeds increased the elasticity of blood vessels and helped prevent the build-up of plaque in arteries - all-important factors in the fight against heart disease. Additionally, the omega-3 fatty acids in sesame seeds may help boost mood and even fight the blues. Next time sprinkle on a few sesame seeds on your favorite foods instead of reaching for the salt. They make a flavor and healthier alternative to salt.
