Ancient Indian physicians were well aware of the medicinal properties of sesame oil. They recommended its use for a variety of ailments, physical and mental, and also for general well-being. Their knowledge has since been corroborated by modern science. Today, it is a proven fact that sesame oil is not only good for health, it has very specific properties that alleviate certain conditions, sometimes even curing them.

Blood Pressure & Heart

Sesame oil has been scientifically proven to be beneficial in controlling blood pressure. Experiments have shown that when used as a regular cooking medium, it brings down both systolic and diastolic pressure. This particular property of sesame oil is attributed to the high level of polyunsaturated fatty acids it contains. It also has peptides that convert enzyme INHIBITORS, which again has a beneficial effect on blood pressure. The presence of sesamin helps too.

While it is not a cure, nor a substitute for medication, it improves the efficacy of anti-hypertension drugs and could bring down the level of medicines required.

It has proved effective in hypertensive patients who use beta blockers, as well as those taking diuretics to manage their blood pressure.

Sesame oil has been found to be responsible for sesame oil's anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which make it a good anti-atherogenic agent. In other words, sesame oil is good for your heart. It is not without reason that India's largest and best known brand of sesame oil is called Idhayam - meaning 'heart' in Tamil.

 

Stress

Sesame oil works on mental well-being as well as physical health. Ancient Indian medical texts cite its use as an anti-depressant. It has been found to counter or at least reduce the effects of senility and control the mood changes associated with menopause.

It works on children too! A warm sesame oil massage has been proved to soothe a cranky baby and help him sleep well. A bonus is that regular massages promote healthy growth.

Depression

Depression is another area of mental health where sesame oil has proved effective. Research shows that this can be attributed to sesamol, which is a lignin.

Diabetes

Research has proved that regular use of sesame oil in cuisine boosts the effect of glibenclamide, an oral medication for patients with Type 2 Diabetes. It is particularly useful if the patient is also suffering from high blood pressure.

Eyes

Also, in the east, kajal was traditionally home-made, using lamp soot produced by a cotton wick dipped in sesame oil (or ghee). This preparation, with no chemicals or additives, is completely safe, and also good for the eyes as it has cleansing properties as well as beauty enhancing ones.

Nose

A common home remedy for children who are often exposed to the common cold virus is a drop of sesame oil swabbed in each nostril. It is believed to repel airborne bacteria and viruses.

Ayurvedic practitioners also recommend sniffing up drops of sesame oil to heal persistent sinus infections.

Bones

 The presence of vitamin K makes sesame oil good for your bones. It builds a healthy framework for your body. Besides, it also works to alleviate the effects of arthritis, according to traditional medical wisdom. The zinc content increases bone density. Sesame oil is therefore very good for those suffering from osteoporosis.

Nails

Sesame oil is an important part of manicures and pedicures. It helps repair damaged nails and softens brittle ones. It is simple and easy to use for this purpose. Just warm a small bowl of gingelly oil, and soak your nails in it for ten to fifteen minutes. Wait for another fifteen minutes before you cut or polish your nails, as they will be really soft and malleable after the soaking. But once dry, they will be firm, yet strong. For severely damaged or brittle nails, the process can be repeated as required.

Digestion

Sesame oil lubricates the bowels. A regular dose of two tablespoons of warm sesame oil every night will ease constipation. If taken continuously for a few months, it might even get rid of the problem for good.

Cancer

The sesamin in sesame oil has been found to have cell-growth-restrictive properties, which are very useful in fighting many types of cancers, including malignancies in the colon, prostate, breast, lung and pancreas. It is also helpful in combatting leukemia and multiple myeloma.

Science has also now proved that it is effective against radiation induced DNA damage because of its high antioxidant qualities.

It is also recommended for palliative care.

The National Cancer Institute says: "That the use of sesame oil for body massages

can greatly relieve cancer-related pain."

Alternative Medicine

Sesame oil is an important ingredient in alternative systems of medicine. It is used both externally and internally, by itself and in combination with other ingredients, to treat various conditions.

    Sesame oil is well known for it blood pressure, lipid and glucose lowering effect in hypertensive and diabetes as reported by a world renowned scientist many years. I came to know that most of the sesame oil studies were using Idhyam Gingelly oil. I am wondering whether you product maintains the same standard quality as used for the studies. We checked the sesamin, sesamol content of your product and we found that lignans part were low in concentration. Please try to provide better quality product since sesame oil is known for many health benefits.

This was a person that loved me with everything that he had. When i told my friend jenny what happened, she introduced me to a great spell caster called DR KEKE ODIN, the chief priest of all spell caster.

    Author: Julian Caden Topic: Pregnant at 52 after reunion love spell Testimony: -My marriage was falling almost dead due to a bit argument, depression, feelingless and numbed attitudes of my Hubby, he preferred being silent so as to hurt me. -Although there’re days he has been fine and good to me, we cook, eat and do things together, but we still like stepping on a dozen of eggs, we were not at ease as like before when our marriage was still in an excellent shape. Most times after saying some hurtful words to me like; I cannot bear his children anymore cos of my age. He says sorry and apologize cos he knows that he’s acting passive, numbed and feelingless to me and frustration hits him back again and again. -I truly love my Hubby and feels guilty of our misfortune, I have always wanted to trace back my wrongs and make some amendments so we can live as a happy family with our children by our side. I was tired of seeing him hurt inside. -He eventually served me with a divorce letter after 18 years of our blessed marriage. His reason was that we could never work things out together again, I couldn’t bear his children, shutting him off to be involved in my life and affairs, he feels numbed when he thinks of those circumstances. -I was deeply hurt before consulting Dr. Wakina Love Temple, even though I tried day by day to adjust to the woman of his choice but he didn’t see my efforts. -At the end, I was put in a better position with my Hubby by Dr. Wakina love spell via his email dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com. I’m 7 months pregnant already at 52. It’s a magical work of Dr. Wakina that restored our dream.
