Sesame Extract comes from Black Sesame Seeds (Sesame Indicum L). The active ingredient of black sesame seed extract is Sesamin,which is an all-natural component stored in sesame seeds. Sesame seed is one of the oldest oil seed crops known, domesticated well over 3000 years ago. Sesame has many species, most being wild and native to sub-Saharan Africa. Sesame Indicum, the cultivated type, originated in India and it si highly tolerant to drought-like conditions and grows where other crops may fail.
Sesame has one of the highest oil contents of any seed . With a rich, nutty flavor, it is a common ingredient in cuisines across the world. Like other nuts and foods, it can trigger allergic reactions in some people.
Sesame seed contains very high levels (up to 2,5%) of furofuran lignans with beneficial physiological activities (mainly sesamin, sesamolin, and sesaminol glucosides). Reported activities of sesame seed lignans include inter alias modulation of fatty acid metabolism, inhibition of cholesterol absorption and biosynthesis, antioxidant and vitaminE-sparing effects, hypotensive effects, improvement of liver functions in connection with alcohol metabolism and antiaging effects.
