NOL, Nutraveris Online, the most efficient data solution to create, keep up-to-date and launch your products in the 28 EU member states, used for 10years by more than 500 industry leaders informs you:


Sesame is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, fibre, phytosterol and lignans, which may all contribute to reduce blood pressure. The aim of this meta-analysis was to compile controlled trials assessing the effects of sesame consumption on blood pressure.




8 controlled trials with a total of 843 participants met the eligibility criteria.

Results showed that sesame consumption can reduce systolic blood pressure (-7.83 mmHg, 95% CI: -14.12, -1.54, p < 0.05) and diastolic blood pressure (-5.83 mmHg, 95% CI: -9.58, -2.08, p < 0.01). By taking into account only studies with the highest methodology quality (4 trials), the authors highlighted a significant reduction in systolic blood pressure (-3.23 mmHg, 95% CI: -5.67, -0.79), but not in diastolic blood pressure (-2.08 mmHg, 95% CI: -4.85, 0.69).


In conclusion, sesame consumption can reduce systolic and diastolic blood pressure, leading to a possible reduction in the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
