South Korea has very low obesity rates – just 6%, compared to 25% in Britain. Nuts and seeds are a super-important part of a healthy, balanced diet, and Koreans eat five times as many sesame seeds than we do here in the UK.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF SESAME SEEDS
These super seeds are a source of B vitamins which are good for keeping our metabolism healthy, and they contain phosphorus, which helps to maintain our bones and teeth. Seeds such as sesame seeds are also high in unsaturated fat, which helps to lower cholesterol. Replacing saturated fats with unsaturated fats, such as the kinds found in sesame seeds, could therefore help protect against coronary heart disease.
