Sesame Oil

Sesame is rich in lignans, which is a potential food source of antioxidants.

1. Antioxidant Function of Sesame Oil

Sesame oil reduces lipid peroxidation and hydroxyl radicals, increases superoxide

dismutase and catalase activity. Sesame oil diet significantly reduces FEN-induced

oxidative stress in liver tissue. Sesame oil can inhibit cypermethrin-induced brain toxicity,

which is closely related to reducing oxidative stress and protecting antioxidant enzymes.
