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.

2. Protection of Sesame Oil on LDL Oxidation

3. Anti-inflammatory effect of sesame oil

Nonalcoholic fatty liver is the most common chronic liver disease, including steatosis,

nonalcoholic steatohepatitis and cirrhosis. Nonalcoholic fatty liver is associated with

an increased risk of liver cancer. Sesame oil can reduce the steatosis of hepatocytes

caused by MCD feeding by reducing inflammatory cytokines, leptin, transforming

growth factor-beta and low oxidative stress, and provide significant protection for

liver fibrosis.
