Sesame seeds are great for you, because they are very rich in numerous minerals and protein. They are loaded with magnesium, vitamin E, calcium and zinc, which your body needs for an excellent blood sugar regulation and metabolism. Sesame seeds also contain fiber that keeps you full longer and controls digestion. You can add them to soups, salads, or smoothies. In addition, you can use tahini, which is the only oily spread made from sesame seeds.
