Sesame is one of the oldest cultivated plants in the world, valued as an oilseed for at least 5,000 years. Although sesame has returned people's affection thanks to its extremely high calcium and magnesium content, it is also one of the most potent medicinal foods. In fact, his history of use as a medicine dates back to the time of the ancient Egyptians where he is listed in the writings of Eber as a favored medicine. Also, women in ancient Babylon believed that using a mixture of sesame and honey could prolong their youth and beauty, and Roman soldiers ate this mixture for strength and energy. One of the first references to sesame and honey can be found in Homer's Iliad. Ancient Greek warriors like Achilles are believed to have eaten this mixture before going into battle to give them strength and long lasting energy. Herodotus, the first historian, even mentions sesame and honey cookies.
In various forms, this tradition lives on today, where sesame and honey cakes are eaten around the world, though often more as a treat, with their many health benefits.
Raw organic honey has a number of health benefits - from boosting energy levels to improving your immune system - and so does sesame, including improving heart and bone health.
So it's not surprising that the combination of these two ingredients can have some huge benefits. The combination of nutrients and minerals from sesame and honey can help with almost any physical function. Sesame and honey as a medicine can be used to lower cholesterol and blood pressure, to improve circulation and prevent cancer. They are especially effective in treating anxiety, chronic fatigue and depression, and are generally great for your overall health.
Nutritionists point out that it is rich in vitamins, useful proteins, copper, magnesium, and emphasize that, in addition to being a great fighter against many diseases, sesame slows down aging.
Originally from Asia, these seeds have long been considered medicinal, and among the main features is the slowing of aging. The seeds can be white, black or brown, with some differences in composition. Although small, they have great nutritional value. More than half of sesame seeds are fat, of which very little is saturated, while unsaturated fatty acids - oleic and linoleic, predominate. One fifth of sesame seeds are made up of useful proteins, and vitamins include A, B1, B6 and E, which is responsible for preventing premature wrinkling and skin aging. Copper, also an integral part of the seeds that crunch under the teeth, relieves inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis, while magnesium lowers arterial pressure and prevents migraine attacks. Zinc plays an important role in maintaining fertility in men, encouraging wound healing and healing of skin imperfections. The human body can very finely "extract" both calcium and iron stored in sesame. Sesame is rich in fiber. Phytosterols, the constituents of this semen in chemical structure similar to cholesterol, interfere with its absorption and thus help lower blood levels. Sesamine and sesamolin have the effect of lowering the elevated arterial pressure. Using sesame seeds or their products can also reduce lipid peroxidation, one of the most serious consequences of which is the formation of cancerous cells. Miracle seeds also improve the effectiveness of glibenclamide, a cure for diabetes.
