Despite their small stature, sesame seeds pack a powerful punch. They have been used in folklore medicine for years due to their high-end potential. Often described as tiny superfoods, their medicinal value makes them an apt addition to your everyday diet. Apart from adding a distinct taste to your favorite dishes, the health benefits of sesame seeds make them a top choice by nutritionists and dieticians.

Why Including Sesame Seeds in Your Diet is a Healthy Idea?

Being a powerful source of protein, healthy fats, minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and fibers, sesame seeds are a food item that we cherish and appreciate, which is why they are a part of a variety of dishes in our Sattvic restaurants in Dubai.

With their benefits and taste, they easily make for a food item that is of utmost value to health-conscious individuals. Some of the most notable health benefits of sesame seeds are as follows.

Boosts Immunity

Sesame seeds are rich in vitamins B6 and E along with copper, iron, selenium, and zinc, all of which can contribute to boosting your immunity. You will experience an improved production of white blood cells, which in turn, will fight off microbes. They can also keep you warm, which is why, they are often taken on winter nights.

Sesame seeds are one of the strongest sources of plant-based protein – a major necessity for those who follow a vegetarian lifestyle - which is why they are found in abundance in many of the dishes in our pure veg restaurants in Dubai.

Lowers Blood Pressure Levels

Sesame seeds are rich in magnesium, which helps lower high blood pressure, thereby, reducing the risks of heart strokes and diseases significantly. Furthermore, the presence of vitamin E and lignans in sesame seeds helps in avoiding the build-up of plaque in your arteries. As such, you can maintain healthy blood pressure.

Improves Digestion

In the attempt to supply your body with healthy fats, proteins, and carbs, one nutrient that often takes a backseat is fiber. This leads to indigestion and poor gut health. Making small changes such as adding a couple of sesame seeds in your morning oatmeal can supply this deficit. You will experience improved digestion, better bowel movement, and a healthy gut.

Lowers Bad Cholesterol Level

Major health benefits of sesame seeds also include their role in lowering bad cholesterol levels, thereby saving you from dreadful heart diseases. They have a higher proportion of mono-saturated fat and poly-saturated fat compared to saturated fat, which helps in preventing heart ailments. Lignans and phytosterols, found in sesame seeds have also shown cholesterol-reducing powers.

Great Source of Plant-based Protein

Plant-based proteins are a boon for vegetarians who often are on the lookout for such nutrients due to the lack of options. Sesame seeds are one of the most potent sources of plant-based protein that helps in building muscles and hormones. They are also rich in methionine and cysteine, two power amino acids. We recommend you opt for the roasted and hulled sesame seeds since their nutritional value is higher.

Regulated Blood Sugar Level

As sesame seeds have a high content of protein and healthy fats and low content of carbs, they can significantly regulate your blood sugar level. They contain pinoresinol, which inhibits the action caused by maltase, a digestive enzyme, thereby helping regulate the blood sugar level. Research is still ongoing, but it is believed that the inhibition of maltase can bring major dividends to your overall health, especially for those suffering from high blood pressure.

Reduces Inflammation

Among the many health benefits of sesame seeds are their anti-inflammation properties. Many people often tend to ignore low levels of inflammation but in the long run, these inflammations may lead to various chronic conditions, including obesity, kidney failure, heart ailments, and even cancer. Sesamin, one of its most notable compounds has shown anti-inflammatory properties and scientists are probing into it to see its further benefits.

Acts as an Antioxidant Agent

Regular consumption of sesame seeds has shown an increase in the level of antioxidant activity in the blood. The presence of lignans in sesame seeds plays a pivotal role in combating oxidative stress, which helps in preventing any damage to your cells. Furthermore, it also reduces the risk of chronic diseases. Gamma-tocopherol, a type of vitamin E found in these seeds, has shown its capacity to protect you against heart diseases as well.

Helps in Blood Cell Formation

Studies have indicated that sesame seeds can play an active role in the formation of red blood cells in your body. This is because they are rich in vitamin B6, iron, and copper. As such, people who suffer from anemia or who have a low count of blood can benefit hugely from including sesame seeds in their diet.

Maintains Skin Elasticity

Sesame seeds have a high zinc content, which helps in the production of collagen in your skin. As such, you get an enhanced elasticity and supplement in your skin. They majorly help in the repair of damaged body tissues as well.
