Sesame is known as the queen of oil seeds. It is very beneficial for the human body as it protects our liver from free radicals and delays the signs of ageing. Being a rich source of Vitamin B and iron, Sesame improves memory and eyesight by reducing the formation of wrinkles and protects our skin from UV rays. In addition, it promotes healthy skin and bones and contains calcium and zinc, which helps strengthen the bones density and helps prevent osteoporosis. It also encourages healthy and glowing skin.
Broccoli contains potent antioxidants. Antioxidants are beneficial for our bodies. They protect us from various diseases and help our skin rejuvenate. Antioxidants also help our bodies in preventing cell damage that happens by free radicals. Broccoli contains a vast quantity of antioxidants. The most beneficial antioxidant is sulforaphane. It is produced from a compound called glucoraphanin. Sulforaphane has multiple health benefits, including many health benefits like reducing blood sugar level, oxidative stress and lasting disease progress.
Another vital antioxidant you’ll get from broccoli is lutein and zeaxanthin. These two antioxidants help inhibit oxidative stress and cellular damage in the eyes, such as cataracts and macular degeneration. Broccoli also protects us from cancer. The bitter flavour of broccoli is due to sulforaphane. The function of sulforaphane is to increase the detoxification of airborne toxins, for instance, cigarette smoke. It also helps to reduce the risk of certain cancers.
