Sesame Seeds Improve Thyroid Function

These tiny little seeds that usually come on the top of white fluffy bread (put the bread down πŸ‘‡πŸΌ) are a powerhouse of nutrients.

Just 1/4 cup of these little seeds contain the following:

πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 35% of DV in Calcium
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 163% of DV in Copper
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 29% of DV in Iron
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 32% of DV in Magnesium
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 45% of DV in Manganese
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 24% of DV in Molybdenum
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 32% of DV in Phosphorous
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 5% of DV in Potassium
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 23% of DV in Selenium
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 25% of DV in Zinc
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 23% of DV in Vitamin B1
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 7% of DV in Vitamin B2
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 10% of DV in Vitamin B3
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 16% of DV in Vitamin B6
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 9% of DV in Folate
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 1% of DV in Vitamin E
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 13% of DV in Protein
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ They also contain a substance called sesamin which protects the liver and increases Vitamin E supplies.

The only caveat to eating these with wild abandon is if you have allergies such as hayfever, sinusitis, general allergies. This is because of the high copper content. Often allergies can be caused by high copper coupled with low zinc levels. So if this is you, be careful as you test them.

All of these factors make them helpful for

πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Osteoporosis
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Rheumatoid Arthritis
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Asthma
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Lowering blood pressure
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Migraines
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Sleep patterns in menopause
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Reducing PMS
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Colon Cell Health
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Lowers cholesterol (high in phytosterols)

So, it's time to get fancy and start sprinkling these little beauties on everything! Salads, Vegetables and meat all look a little nicer with sesame seeds sprinkled on top!
