Sesame oil is one of those vegetable oils that are good for you. Most nutritionists like it for two reasons. First, it’s rich in mono- and polyunsaturated acids (PUFAs) — the good kind of fat that cuts cholesterol. Second, sesame oil is low in saturated fats — the kind of fat that’s bad for you.

Being a rich source of fiber, sesame oil is also known as the “queen of oil seeds” not only beneficial for promoting health but also extensively used in various cuisines.Sesame oil is full of antioxidants. Along with vitamin E and phytosterols, it contains lignans, sesamol, and sesaminol. These compounds help fight free radicals in your body, which may reduce your risk of developing chronic diseases.

People love our Sesame oil so much that we thought we should talk about why sesame oil is so great.  Apart from helping to make food taste delicious, sesame has a rich history due to its amazingly diverse nutritional profile. Here are the top 4 reasons we LOVE sesame Oil:

Sesame Oil in India

Indian people revere sesame and both the oil and seeds are used in traditional cooking methods, religious rituals, Ayurvedic medicine, and topically for skin nourishment.   And Babylonian woman are believed to have consumed a mixture of honey and sesame seeds for health and beauty.

Sesame is a good source of vitamins and minerals.  One serving has more than your daily copper needs, as well as significant levels of manganese, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, zinc, selenium, vitamin E, and vitamin B1 (2).Our Sesame Oils use this low heat process.  This ensures that our Extra Virgin Sesame Oil contain the vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are found naturally in sesame seeds. The significant levels of zinc found in sesame explain its role in contributing to better skin when applied topically. Zinc has been shown to absorb well into deep levels of the skin, while decreasing inflammation and bacterial growth of wounds.Sesame oil is also used for improved oral health. It has been documented for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine in the tradition of oil pulling, a practice that involves swishing oil around the mouth. It is proven to prevent tooth decay, bleeding gums, dry mouth, and improve teeth, gums, and jaw health. Just take 1-2 tablespoons of our Extra Virgin Sesame Oil in the morning (great to do while showering!) and swish for 10-20 minutes for best results.

Protects heart health

Sesame oil is heart-friendly and able to lower bad cholesterol levels as it contains a wide range of polyunsaturated fatty acids, including sesamol and sesamin. These fatty acids keep the cardiovascular system strong and the LDL cholesterol levels low

The lignans found in black sesame seeds can enhance the antioxidant activity of vitamin E, maximizing the health benefits and helping you get the most nutritional value possible from each serving. Sesame seeds also contain a good amount of essential fatty acids, which are needed for the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamins A, D, E and K. For this reason, including a sesame oil with a nutrient-dense meal can help you actually absorb and use the nutrients more efficiently.
