Sesame seeds pack a health punch

SESAME seeds might be tiny but they pack a real punch.

They are a good source of calcium and lignans, which are steroid-like plant compounds that have been shown to fight inflammation.

This, in combination with the antioxidants and magnesium they contain, may explain why sesame seeds help prevent plaque build-up in arteries, as suggested by small studies.

Scientists have also linked sesame seeds with a reduction in cholesterol and inflammation, but this was with a daily dose of 40g to 50g of sesame seed powder - which is far more than you would be able to eat at home.
