ChiltanPure Sesame Powder Benefits
Lower Cholesterol and Triglycerides
Sesame seeds consist of 15% saturated fat, 41polyunsaturated fat, and 39% monounsaturated fat. Sesame seeds may help reduce heart disease risk factors, including elevated triglyceride and “bad” LDL cholesterol levels.
Source of Plant Protein
Sesame seeds — particularly hulled ones — are a good source of protein, which is a necessary building block for your body.
Help Lower Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke. Sesame seeds are high in magnesium, which may help lower blood pressure. Additionally, their antioxidants may help prevent plaque buildup.
Support Healthy Bones
Unhulled sesame seeds are especially rich in nutrients vital to bone health, including calcium. Soaking, roasting, or sprouting sesame seeds can improve absorption of these minerals.
Long-term, low-level inflammation may play a role in many chronic conditions, including obesity and cancer, as well as heart and kidney disease. Preliminary research suggests that sesame seeds and their oil may have anti-inflammatory properties.
Good Source of B Vitamins
Sesame seeds are a good source of certain B vitamins, which are distributed both in the hull and seed. Sesame seeds are a good source of thiamine, niacin, and vitamin B6, which are necessary for proper cellular function and metabolism.
Aid Blood Cell Formation
Sesame seeds supply iron, copper, and vitamin B6, which are needed for blood cell formation and function.
Aid Blood Sugar Control
Sesame seeds may aid blood sugar control because they’re low in carbs and high in quality protein and healthy fats. Moreover, they contain a plant compound that may help in this regard.
Rich in Antioxidants
Plant compounds and vitamin E in sesame seeds function as antioxidants, which combat oxidative stress in your body.
Support Your Immune System
Sesame seeds are a good source of several nutrients that are important for immune system function, including zinc, selenium, copper, iron, vitamin B6, and vitamin E.
