Sesame seed oil is rich in unsaturated fatty acids (oleic and linoleic acids), vitamins A, E and B, proteins, calcium, magnesium and lecithin.

This lightweight oil is great for all hair types because of it’s ability to condition, moisturize, and add sheen. Historically it has been used to help slow down hair loss and thinning.

Because it is a natural antioxidant, it helps reduce the visibility of scars and skin imperfections. It is recommended for the treatment of a wide range of skin conditions, especially chronic inflammation and microcirculatory disturbances of the skin, particularly in dry sensitive skin.

It is a natural UV protector, it resists around 25% of UV rays.

Taken internally, sesame seed oil is shown to help control diabetes, high blood pressure and gingivitis.

It is asserted that when used in infant massage, it helps to calm babies and lull them to sleep, as well as protect their tender skin against diaper rash.

Due to its high content of vitamin E, sesame seed oil has been shown to slow the aging process and prevent premature wrinkles. The presence of zinc in this oil will soothe irritated skin, and cure acne, pimples and blackheads. It also promotes the healing of wounds, blemishes and scars.

Sesame seed contains a high level of lignans – a group of chemical compounds referred to collectively as phytoestrogens (plant-based estrogen-like compounds that also act as antioxidants).
The major lignans in sesame seeds are the oil-soluble sesamin and sesamolin. Researchers have found that sesamin, in particular, inhibited the proliferation of a wide variety of tumor cells, including leukemia, multiple myeloma, and cancers of the colon, prostate, breast, lung, and pancreas.

Let's review just 10 evidence-based medicinal properties of sesame:

• Diabetes
A study published in 2011 in the Clinical Journal of Nutrition showed that sesame oil improved the effectiveness of the oral antidiabetic drug glibenclamide in type 2 diabetes.

Another study published in 2006 in the Journal of Medicinal Foods showed that the substitution of sesame seed oil as the sole edible oil lowers blood pressure and glucose in hypertensive diabetics.

• High blood pressure
A study published in 2006 in the Yale Journal of Biological Medicine showed that sesame seed oil has a beneficial effect in hypertensive patients on either diuretics or beta-blockers. Substitution of all dietary oils with sesame oil brought down systolic and dystolic blood pressure to normal, in addition to decreasing lipid peroxidation (bodily rancidity) and antioxidant status.

One of the compounds identified behind sesame seed’s antihypertensive effects are peptides that act as angiotensin I-converting enzyme inhibitors.

• Gingivitis/ dental plaque
Sesame seed oil has been used for oral health for thousands of years in the traditional Indian medicine (Ayurveda) in a process known as “oil pulling.” It involves swishing sesame seed oil in the mouth and has been said to prevent teeth decay, bad breath, bleeding gums, dry throat, and for strengthening the teeth, gums and jaw. Clinical research now confirms that it compares favorably to chemical mouthwash (chlorhexidine) in improving plaque-induced gingivitis, and that it is capable of reducing Streptococcus mutans growth associated with oral plaque formation.

• Infant health/ massage oil
A study published in the Indian Journal of Medical Research in 2000 showed that massaging infants with sesame oil improved both their growth and post-massage sleep, in comparison to control oils such as mineral oil.

• Multiple sclerosis (MS)
In the animal model of MS, also known as experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis, sesame seed oil protects mice from developing the disease by reducing IFN-gamma secretion, a key factor in initiating autoimmune inflammation and injury in the nervous system. It has also been researched for its potential beneficial role in another neurodegenerative condition, Huntington’s disease.

• Antibiotic-induced kidney damage
Sesame seed oil protects against gentamicin-induced kidney damage in rats by reducing oxidative damage caused by the antibiotic.

• Atherosclerosis
Sesame seed oil prevents the formation of atherosclerotic lesions in mice fed an atherogenic diet. The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory lignan found within sesame seeds known as sesamol has been identified to be partially responsible for its anti-atherogenic properties. In fact, sesamol has been shown to possess over two dozen beneficial pharmacologically active properties, many of which may contribute to improving cardiovascular health.

• Depression
The sesame lignin sesamol was shown to exert an antidepressant-like effect in chronically stressed mice, specifically by modulating oxidative-nitrosative stress and inflammation.

• Radiation-induced DNA damage
Sesamol has been shown to protect against gamma radiation-induced DNA damage, likely through its antioxidant properties.
It is capable of reducing mortality in radiation treated mice, in part through preventing intestinal and spleen damage. When compared to another powerful antioxidant, melatonin, it was found 20 times more effective as a free radical scavenger.

• Cancer
Sesame contains a fat-soluble lignin with phytoestrogenic properties known as sesamin, and which has been studied for inhibiting the proliferation of a wide range of cancer cells, including: leukemia, multiple myleoma, colon cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, pancreatic cancer and lung cancer.

Sesamin’s anticancer effects have been linked to the NF-kappaB signaling.
Sesame deserves to be recognized, along with garlic, honey, turmeric and a few other substances, as an easily accessible and affordable food-medicine that, if consumed regularly, could quite possibly save lives.
