Health Benefits

Black Sesame seeds, organic or otherwise, are incredibly rich in essential nutrients, promoting your general health and well-being. The most notable of their benefits include:

Raw black organic sesame seeds contain a variety of antioxidants that protect your body from the detrimental effects of free radical damage. Oxidation weakens every cell in your body and speeds up the process of natural aging. Antioxidants negate this damage to some extent and help you fight the flow of time.

The former is recommended during the pre-conception period and pregnancy itself as it reduces the risk of neural tube effects in newborns. Niacin is one of the reasons black organic sesame seeds are great for your heart as it reduces the levels of ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol.
