There are many benefits from adding sesame seeds into your daily habits and here’s why...
1. GOOD FOR YOUR SKIN AND HAIR
Eating these seeds goes a long way when it comes to hair, skin and eye health. They contain the all-important B vitamins, include thiamin, niacin, folic acid, pyridoxine and riboflavin.
2. PACKED WITH HEALTH BOOSTING MINERALS
The sesame seed is rich in the essential minerals of copper, magnesium and calcium, which are great for inflammation, pain, arthritis, and respiratory issues.
3. GOOD SOURCE OF PROTEIN AND FIBRE
The best things come in small packages! Sesame seeds are big when it comes to providing your body with protein and fibre. This protein will help in the maintenance and development of muscles, while the fibre from sesame seeds help support a healthy digestive system.
4. STRONG BONES
Sesame seeds are a great source of both calcium and zinc, and both these minerals play a key role in helping to maintain strong, healthy bones. Eating sesame seeds on a regular basis can help prevent osteoporosis, which is another important reason you should include them.
There are many ways to start enjoying sesame seeds in your diet but perhaps the most popular is to simply sprinkle it on top of your favourite meals.
Sprinkle them over a salad, or your homemade soups and enjoy the nutty taste and added texture of the seeds with your meal.
As well as adding sesame seeds to your favourite meals, using them in baking in the form of breads and cakes is easy.
