Sesamin, a polyphenol that possesses many health benefits, is a lignan found in the hulls of sesame seeds. Sesame seeds are the source of sesamin and sesamolin, both of which can prevent fat storage and are contained in our Sesame Lignan supplement. Sesamin has been used for its health benefits for centuries and has made its mark as a natural alternative in the weight loss supplement category due to its fat burning properties without the use of stimulants. Sesamin is one of the best natural fat burning supplements on the market today.
According to a study performed in Japan (1), sesamin was reported to lower cholesterol. The same study reported that sesamin could help stimulate weight loss, break down fatty acids, and reduce the bodyís ability to store fat. Sesamin was also reported to help preserve lean muscle.*
Sesamin has become widely used in bodybuilding as a result of its fat burning and trimming qualities. Containing no stimulants, sesamin has become very popular for its ability to naturally block fat storage without relying on the harmful stimulants found in many traditional fat burning supplements.
Our sesame supplement contains 540 mg of sesame seed extract, which yields 81 mg of sesamin and 27 mg of sesamolin, both of which possess fat burning properties. Sesame Seed Lignans are a healthier alternative to other weight loss supplements because, unlike most fat burning supplements, our sesamin does not contain any stimulants. Sesamin is a natural alternative aid for weight control and health.
Our Sesame seed extract has a higher sesamin content than plain sesame seeds and offers the fat burning properties of sesame without the calories and oil. Our newest batch of sesamin has been extracted from pure white sesame seeds and has twice the Sesamin content as our previous black sesamin. The seeds have been dried and condensed; resulting in sesamin (sesame lignan) that is much more concentrated than regular sesame seeds.
Suggested use is one capsule 3 times per day. Note: Sesamin is not a substitute for proper nutrition and exercise. Sesamin is meant to be used in conjunction with these in order to obtain maximum health and results.
Functional Foods of the East, a popular book about healing foods and natural methods for treating illnesses and maintaining health, states that sesamin can help stimulate the peroxisome proliferator-activator receptor alpha (PPARalpha). This nuclear receptor protein group is important for metabolism, as well as for cellular development. This receptor is in the liver, heart, kidneys and muscle tissue. It enables fat oxidation and lipogenisis, or the conversion of sugars into fatty acids. This book also claims that a higher activity of the PPARalpha can support greater fat oxidation and reduce the body's predisposition to store calories as fat.
Another benefit of sesamin is that it can boost some liver enzyme activity. Such enzymes include those that help break down fatty acids and generate ketones that provide energy for the brain. Read more here

Sesamin Side Effects
Sesame seeds are not nuts; however, they have some amino acids that are similar to nuts. If you have a nut allergy, there is a possibility that you could have an allergy to sesame or sesamin. Additionally, if you have a sesame seed allergy, you may also have an allergy to sesamin.

I wish I had taken measurements beforehand because even though I didn't lose pounds, I definitely lost inches. My clothes are fitting so much better after taking the Sesamin for just one month. Amazing!Ē
