- Sesamum indicum is an important oilseed crop of the world. Its seed provides a highly stable oil and nutritious protein and meal and is used in confectionery foods. It is also an ingredient in Ayurvedic oils under the Indian System of medicine. Sesame is reported to possess antiaging properties, hypocholesterolemic effect, alleviation of symptoms of alcohol withdrawal, etc. Phytochemical investigation of sesame has revealed the presence of biologically active compounds, namely, lignans and lignan glucosides. As the major compound present in sesame, sesamin inhibits cholesterol absorption and synthesis in rats.
