Sesame seed may reduce cholesterol and aid with blood sugar control

African seed boosts blood sugar control in 3 weeks

Whether you’re diabetic — or are just traveling down the road towards the devastating disease — you know that poor blood sugar control can leave you feeling dizzy, tired, and chugging water like a dehydrated elephant. But if you’re looking to ditch diabetes for good, there may be some potent help on the way — and it’s all thanks to one of the tiniest seeds our Creator ever sowed on this green earth.

An eye-opening new study recently published in the Journal of Food Research has found that the simple sesame seed, the delicious bagel topping that’s been a staple of good health in Africa and other regions of the world for thousands of years, may have the power to improve your blood sugar, slash your cholesterol, and set you on the road to permanent good health.

And it goes to work in as little as just three short weeks!

Here’s the deal. Researchers asked 20 volunteers with prediabetes and high cholesterol to spend six weeks supplementing with a special extract derived from sesame seeds. After just three weeks, the volunteers had lowered their total cholesterol and improved their fasting glucose levels, taking a sharp and perhaps permanent detour away from the road to diabetes.

As we’ve been telling you for years, sesame seeds are packed with the phytosterols that are proven to lower your cholesterol and give your ticker a new lease on life. In fact, one study from the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry ranked 27 different nuts and seeds for phytosterol content and proved that sesame seeds are brimming with the good-for-you plant sterols.

Before you surrender to a life ruled by diabetes why not give one of Mother Nature’s tiniest seeds a chance to make a huge difference? You could be just 21 days away from acing your next blood sugar test.
