Sesame Extract

Sesame seeds are a staple in Mediterranean cuisine, commonly found in dishes like tahini and hummus. Sesame seeds offer substantial health benefits due to their rich nutritional content. 

Sesame seeds contain lignans, particularly sesamin and sesamolin, which are potent polyphenols. These compounds help reduce cholesterol levels, fight inflammation, and may protect against various cancers. 

They also neutralise harmful free radicals and enhance the bioavailability of vitamin E, improving its antioxidant effects. 

Is sesame oil good for you? 

  • When consumed, sesame lignans are metabolized by intestinal bacteria into enterolactone and enterodiol. These metabolites have been proven for their protective effects against hormone-related diseases, including breast cancer, thanks to their ability to modulate hormone activity.
  • The lignans in sesame can help manage blood lipid levels, contributing to cardiovascular health. Adding sesame seeds to your diet can boost the effectiveness of omega-3 fatty acids. 
  • This makes sesame seeds a beneficial addition to fish meals or when taking fish oil supplements, enhancing omega-3’s anti-inflammatory and heart-healthy benefits.
