Aztec Sesame Seeds provide an excellent source of copper and manganese, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc, molybdenum, selenium, and dietary fibre just to name a few. These tasty seeds provide an array of health benefits and make a great addition to a healthy nutritious diet.
Sesame seeds contain Sesamin and sesamolin which belong to a group of beneficial fibres called lignans. These lignans are known to lower cholesterol and prevent high blood pressure. Copper is known for reducing pain and swelling of rheumatoid arthritis and plays an important role in the cross-linking of colagen and elastin which provide strength and elasticity in bones, joints and blood vessels.
The magnesium content in sesame seeds is known to assist in lowering blood pressure which in turn may reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. Magnesium can also assist in preventing the airway spasm in asthma sufferers as well as preventing the trigeminal blood vessel spasm that triggers migraines.
In addition to the many benefits mentioned above, sesame seeds may also help women experiencing menopause to have a more restful sleep. The zinc in sesame seeds may also help to prevent osteoporosis in both men and women. Both great reasons alone to include this amazing seed in your diet.
These versatile seeds are available throughout the year. The crunchy, nutty flavour is a great addition to many recipes such as bread, muffins, sauté dishes, salads and many Asian dishes. They are also the main ingredient in a Middle Eastern sweet called Halvah and in the sesame seed paste tahini which makes a great spread on wraps and sandwiches and more.
