Patented extract of Sesame Seeds for optimal cardiovascular health
Maintain normal lipid profileJapanese studies showed that taking sesamin helped reduce total cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol and apoliprotein B (Apo B) by almost 20% in just eight weeks.
Hypotensive effectsIn animal studies, administering SesaPlex™ standardised in sesamin for five weeks resulted in a significant drop in blood pressure. In fact, animals given sesamin had lower levels of superoxide (a marker for cardiovascular stress) as well as lower blood pressure. Scientists concluded that the sesamin inhibited production of aortic superoxide and that its antioxidant activity may contribute to its ability to reduce blood pressure.
Powerful antioxidant benefitsSesaPlex™ increases levels of gamma- and alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E) in tissues and serum, resulting in a significant decrease in lipid peroxidation and thus preventing damage by excess free radicals.
Boosts effect of certain fatty acids to give powerful anti-inflammatory benefitsThe lignans in sesame inhibit delta-5-desaturase, an enzyme which enables DGLA (dihomo-γ-linolenic acid) to be converted into inflammatory arachidonic acid.
Cardiovascular and hormonal support for menopausal womenA placebo-controlled crossover study was conducted on 24 menopausal women, in which they were either given 50g/day of sesame seed powder for five weeks, followed by a three-week washout period and a further five week placebo period, or the same treatment in reverse order. The sesame treatment was found to significantly improve the women’s lipid profile and antioxidant status, particularly their blood tocopherol levels, and may also influence sex hormones.
Prevents apoptosis of healthy cellsChinese scientists showed that significantly less cell death occurred in cells treated with sesamin and sesamolin than in untreated cells. They concluded that the lignans in sesame seeds may suppress production of reactive oxygen species and inhibit the release of mitogen activated-protein kinases, a family of immune system proteins responsible for inducing programmed cell death or apoptosis.
