Sesame seeds provide protein and calcium, which support muscle and growth, while the micronutrients in sesame seeds assist protect your body from free radical damage. In addition, healthy fats contribute to reducing blood pressure and cholesterol, hence improve overall heart health.
Fun fact: did you know that there’s a saying in Asia that black sesame seeds help prevent grey hair and make you seem younger? It’s probably all thanks to those antioxidants and nutrients that make black sesame seeds a popular anti-aging food.
