Health Benefits of Sesame Seeds Delicious, crunchy sesame seeds are widely regarded as healthy foods. 100 grams of seeds carry 573 calories.

Oleic acid helps reduce lodeal or “bad cholesterol” and increases hdl or “good cholesterol” in the blood. Research studies suggest that a mediating diet rich in mono-unsaturated fats may help prevent coronary artery disease, and may lead to stroke by preferring healthy serum lipid profiles.

Only 100 grams of seeds provide about 18 g of protein (32 percent of the recommended values daily). Sesame seeds contain sesamol (3, 4-methylene-dioxyphenol), sesaminol, feryl-methaniol, guajacol (methoxyphenol), phenylthaniol and furaniol, vinylguacol, and decimals. Sesamol and sesaminol are phenolic anti-oxidants. Together, these compounds help remove harmful free radicals from the human body. Sesame quality is one of the seeds rich in vitamins and minerals.
