Black Sesame

2 oz.

Black sesame seeds are a nutrient-dense food with various health benefits. Some potential health benefits are:

Nutrient-Rich: Black sesame seeds are packed with essential nutrients, including protein, healthy fats, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They are particularly rich in calcium, iron, magnesium, and zinc, making them beneficial for bone health, blood circulation, and immune function.

Antioxidant Activity: Black sesame seeds contain potent antioxidants, including sesamin, sesamol, and sesamolin, which help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Antioxidants support overall health and well-being, reduce inflammation, and lower the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.

Heart Health: Black sesame seeds are high in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which have been shown to reduce cholesterol levels and improve heart health. Regular consumption of black sesame seeds may help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol, increase HDL (good) cholesterol, and reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks and strokes.

Digestive Support: Black sesame seeds are a good source of dietary fiber, which supports digestive health by promoting regular bowel movements, preventing constipation, and supporting the growth of beneficial gut bacteria. Fiber also helps regulate blood sugar levels and may reduce the risk of colon cancer.

Directions: add one teaspoon of sesame seed to hot water. Steep for 5 to 10 minutes. Strain and enjoy. 

FYI: Please consult your healthcare provider prior to use if you are pregnant or nursing, taking any medication, or have a medical condition.
