Sesame seeds may be tiny but they have huge health benefits. If you enjoy sprinkling sesame seeds into your cookie/muffin/bread batter, on your salads and in your stir-fries, you will be happy to know that you are doing your health a big favour. Tiny, crunchy, nutty sesame seeds are a nutritional wonder.

Here are three wonderful ways in which Pouyoukas sesame seeds can boost your health:

  1. Promote healthy, beautiful skin. Sesame seeds are full of zinc, an essential mineral for producing collagen and giving skin more elasticity. Zinc also helps repair damaged tissues in the body.

  1. Source of protein. Sesame seeds have 5 grams of protein per two tablespoons, giving them a perfect place in a high-protein vegetarian diet.

  1. Boost digestive health. Sesame seeds are rich in fibre, which is known to pave the way for a healthy digestive system and a healthy colon.
