“I began pressing black sesame seed oil in 2010, after receiving customer requests because they were unable to find black sesame oil on the market but knew the remarkable health benefits of this oil. 20 minutes after taking this oil myself, I felt noticeable pressure in my kidneys. The oil was removing the toxins from my kidneys! As I found out, black sesame oil is known for its powerful kidney cleansing properties.
Andreas Black Sesame Seed Oil has a very pleasant, earthy taste. This is a multipurpose oil, which I use for many things from oil pulling to cooking. I also take this oil to help me relax when I am anxious, as this oil has a natural calming effect. I give this oil to my dogs and horses as well, administered through my Andreas Five Seed Oil.”

There are three varieties of sesame seeds; black, white and red. The black seeds, which I use to press Andreas Black Sesame Oil, yield the highest quality oil, and are also best suited for medicinal purposes. These small seeds are densely packed with nutrients, including protein, lignans, and fiber. Containing high concentrations of vitamin E and multiple forms of B vitamins, including thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, and folic acid, this sesame seeds have been proven to be beneficial for promoting the overall health and development of several systems in the body. Andreas Sesame Seed Oil are also an excellent source of amino acids and omega-6 fatty acids, as well as minerals such as calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, and zinc.
The high medicinal value of sesame seeds and sesame seed oil can be found throughout historical documentation, having been used as a healing oil for thousands of years. In traditional Chinese medicine, sesame seed oil is known to promote lactation, aiding breast-feeding mothers. Sesame seeds have also been used to alleviate the symptoms of menopause due to the lignans found in the seeds. Sesame seed oil has been used extensively in India as well, due to its many benefits as a healing oil, including studies that show its ability to clear plaque buildup from arteries. In recent experiments in Holland by Ayurvedic physicians, the oil has been used in the treatment of several chronic diseases, including Hepatitis.

Studies show that another one of the benefits of sesame seeds is as a potent antioxidant due to the lignan, sesamin, found in the seeds. It has also been shown to possess natural antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal, and anticancer properties due to the presence of the lignans. The anti-parasitic abilities of sesame seeds, especially in the removal of worms from the intestines, is also well known. Studies support that Andreas Sesame Seed Oil may be used for aiding in digestion, stimulating blood circulation and benefiting the nervous system, amongst other health benefits.
Due to the process I use to press Andreas Sesame Seed Oil, the lignans and nutrient-coded fibers naturally remain in the oil, aiding in the delivery of the full benefits of the seeds.
