SESAME BIO 250g
Sesame is one of the most complete foods that nature offers us. Its richness in lecithin, phosphorus, essential amino acids, minerals and unsaturated fats make it a first-rate energy restorative.
Sesame was one of the first oilseed plants cultivated by man in prehistoric times. The oldest histories of Asia, Europe and Africa provide us with documents of culinary and therapeutic use of sesame and its oil. Currently there are many varieties that produce seeds of different colors: black, brown and white; these give finer and better quality oil.
In Eastern countries, such as Japan and China, sesame is a traditional food, as it has the ability to strengthen the nervous system, improve metabolism and prevent various diseases, including arteriosclerosis and high blood pressure, slowing cell aging and promoting longevity.
High biological value
Sesame seeds contain a wide variety of nutritional principles of high biological value. They have 52% lipids, of which 80% are unsaturated fatty acids, mainly omegas 6 and 9. This makes them highly effective in regulating the level of cholesterol in the blood. Among these lipids is lecithin, a powerful emulsifier that facilitates the dissolution of fats in aqueous medium, preventing nervous and cerebral exhaustion. In the blood, it keeps cholesterol dissolved, thus preventing its deposit on the arterial walls.
Sesame is 20% protein, made up of 15 different amino acids with a high proportion of methionine (one of the 8 essential amino acids). At the level of vitamins, this food has two of the B complex (B1 or thiamine and B2 or riboflavin) in much higher quantity than any other oilseed. It also provides a good amount of vitamin E (tocopherol), which is an antioxidant and responsible for slowing aging, reducing the cholesterol level, eliminating toxic metals, and maintaining muscle and nervous tone, fertility, virility and the coagulation index. . Sesame has vitamins B3, B5, B6, K, folic acid, biotin, inositol, and choline.

Sesame stands out for its high calcium content, superior to many dairy products. But unlike them, it is also well endowed with the necessary minerals so that this calcium content can be easily assimilated by the body; we mean magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, zinc, copper, and boron. In addition, sesame has most of the other nutrients synergistic with calcium: essential fatty acids, vitamins and amino acids. It also has significant amounts of potassium, iron (more than liver), selenium, iodine, and chromium.
Other prominent components of sesame are its antioxidants, belonging to the lignan family. They delay cellular aging, prolonging the useful life of cells; they act against fungi and bacteria; inhibit the development of cancer cells; They have antiparasitic action and eliminate free radicals, interrupting cellular oxidation processes.
The rich composition of sesame completes its excellent fiber quality. In addition to the insoluble fiber, there are the mucilages present in the seed, which give it a mild laxative action and an important protective effect on the intestinal flora.
