In terms of kidney and black hair, black sesame seeds are well-known. In fact, black sesame seeds can also remove blood cholesterol, maintain blood vessel elasticity, and prevent atherosclerosis.
Dr. Zhuang Qianzhu from the Chinese Medicine Association of China said that this is mainly due to the unsaturated fatty acids contained in black sesame, which can reduce the total amount of cholesterol and low-density cholesterol, thus protecting cardiovascular health.
In addition, lecithin contained in black sesame is also the backbone of decomposition and cholesterol reduction.
On the other hand, lecithin is one of the components in bile. If the cholesterol in the bile is too high and the ratio of bile acid or lecithin in the bile is out of balance, gallstones are easily formed. Therefore, eating black sesame can prevent the formation of gallstones.
In traditional Chinese medicine consumption methods, black sesame seeds are mostly fried, then ground and eaten, or black sesame seeds when porridge.
Dr. Zhuang pointed out that it is now popular to eat grain soy milk, using soymilk to make soybeans, red beans and other cereals into a slurry, and then put some black sesame seeds, which can enhance physical strength. It is said that the ancient Roman gladiators spent more than one hour before the physical fight, each eating 0.5 kg of sesame to increase physical strength. In addition, it can also tonify kidney, black hair, and protect blood vessels.
Chinese medicine believes that black sesame is flat and suitable for most people. You can eat 15 to 30 grams each time depending on your personal preference.
It should be noted that eating black sesame can only be an auxiliary diet for lowering blood fat, and it cannot be used instead of drugs.
