Benefits of sesame are not only for skin, but also for hair. It is said to trigger hair growth by nourishing the roots with its rich omega fatty acids content. It also helps in moisturising the scalp and improves blood circulation to rejuvenate hair follicles.

Sesame seeds enhance our digestive health by relieving constipation. It is also beneficial for people who are under radiation treatments for cancer.

Sesame seeds also contain anti-aging properties which nourish the hair and avoid the hair greying. It also reduces the inflammation in joints, bones and muscles. But remember not to consume the excessive amount of sesame seeds because too much of anything is not good for our health.

With the presence of natural antioxidants and natural SPF, sesame keeps the skin protected from the sun's UV rays as well as protects it from free radicals. Sesame has been traditionally used in several therapies worldwide for these properties.
