When it comes to beauty, we’re used to covering up our skin, but what if we could make it more beautiful from the inside out instead? One of the impactful ingredients for improving the health of our skin is sesame oil. 

In fact, sesame oil is considered by many to be the “queen of oils” precisely because of its ability to provide nutrition not only to the skin (first five layers of the body), but to the muscle and bone as well (the sixth and seventh layer respectively).(1)

Here are some of the key nutrients in sesame oil and how they impact the body:(2)

  • Vitamin E is thought to help prevent the risks of heart disease and cancer. sesame oil contains 75% of the body's recommended daily allowance of vitamin E in a single oz. It also contains two antioxidants called Sesiminol and Sesamin, both of which increase vitamin E activity within the body and have been said to lower cholesterol levels and prevent high blood pressure.
  • B-Complex Vitamins An integral component that promotes the healthy development of several different systems in the body. B1 and B2 (thiamin and riboflavin) provide for the overall energy level. B3 (niacin) is responsible for skin, nerve and digestive health while B5 (pantothenic acid) aids in overall growth and development of cells. B6 (pyridoxine) is also an aid for healthy nerves as well as the blood and immune system. And finally B9 (folic acid), the vital component needed by the body for red blood cell development.
  • Fatty Acids High in Omega-6, these polyunsaturated fats cannot be developed naturally by the body. They play a crucial role in brain function, growth and development as well as stimulate growth for the hair and skin, maintain bone health, regulate metabolism and maintain the reproductive system.
  • Proteins Amino acids play central roles both as building blocks of proteins and as intermediates in metabolism. The body naturally produces ten amino acids necessary for protein development, however, the rest must be provided through diet and/or supplements on a daily basis as the body does not store amino acids. Isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine are all needed on a daily basis and present in sesame oil.
  • Minerals Elements of calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, selenium and zinc are also found in sesame oil and promote muscular strength and skeletal development.

When we learned about the overwhelming nutritional value of sesame oil, we knew we had to find a way to bring it to as many people as possible in a form that allowed them to easily incorporate it into their daily lives and routine. Certainly no easy task, but the result of our efforts is Boditonic.
