Sesame seeds, grown throughout the world, are one of the smallest seeds and one of the oldest known foods. Packed with protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals and monounsaturated fats, the diminutive sesame seed provides much nutritional value in a tiny package. Sesame seed oil is delicious and offers a variety of heart-healthy benefits.

Estrogenic Effects

Sesame seed oil may help prevent heart attacks in post-menopausal women, according to a study published in the May 2006 issue of the "Journal of Nutrition." Human clinical trials show that sesame seeds contain a type of soluble fiber called lignin that provides estrogen-like effects that lower cholesterol levels. Lignins comprise up to 1.5 percent of sesame seed oil by weight. In the study, participants ate 50 g of sesame seed powder per day for five weeks. Results showed significant decreases in total cholesterol, low density lipoprotein, or LDL, the bad form of cholesterol, and oxidized LDL. Levels of estrogen are likely to also increase with the use of sesame seed oil.
