Black sesame oil has been celebrated for its nourishing and health-giving properties for literally thousands of years. It has also become one of the most studied oils in existence, with a wide variety of human studies conducted over the years. Modern medicine has uncovered how black sesame oil can support your heart, nervous system, your metabolism, help maintain normal blood sugar balance and more.
Perfect Press™ Black Sesame Oil is the purest, most potent sesame oil ever created — and has all the life-changing benefits of thousands of black sesame seeds in one bottle.
Help with Sleep
Black sesame oil contains high levels of magnesium and calcium, which are known to relieve stress both mentally and physically and help you to get deep, restful sleep. Diana Herrington at Care2 identifies two additional nutrients in sesame oil that can improve sleep quality: “Sesame also contains the calming vitamins thiamin and tryptophan that help produce serotonin, which reduces pain, assists moods, and helps you sleep deeply.” Getting better sleep, and more of it is definitely one way to maximize your overall health.
Help with Bone Health
It is an Ayurvedic tradition to use sesame oil for bone health. Sesame oil is the only oil that has the power to penetrate all seven layers of the skin, deep into the body’s organs and tissues, ultimately strengthening the bones. This makes sesame a great choice as a massage. We know that sesame seeds are loaded with magnesium and calcium (more calcium than any other seed, in fact), which work together to maintain strong bones, and they are also high in zinc which is important for bone mineral density.
Chinese herbal medicine recommends the use of the seeds to delay, and even reverse, common signs of aging like loss of hearing, poor memory, gray hair, and poor eyesight. The iron and B vitamins in the seeds (and oil) help fight these age-related symptoms, and fight the formation of unsightly pigments and wrinkles too.
One of the best things about black sesame is that it’s not only HIGHLY therapeutic, it’s also delicious! We specialize in sourcing and producing the very best, most therapeutic oils in the world. And while we have many oils in our line that deliver an incredible range of health benefits, they often are not what you might call delicious or “culinary” oils. But black sesame is unique: it not only does everything we’ve shown you on this page—it’s also tasty and can be used in salad dressings, stir fries, dips, and countless other recipes.
