The true meaning of 'Open Sesame'

In the Tales of the Arabian Nights, “Open Sesame” was the magic word that opened the cave full of treasure. Now, nutritionists are finding out that sesame seeds themselves might be a treasure. By sprinkling some of them onto your favorite foods, you could be helping your heart beat a little stronger. Sesame seeds are believed to inhibit the absorption of cholesterol in the liver. This can lower the total cholesterol level present in your body. The seeds are also a good source of monounsaturated fat. This can reduce LDL or bad cholesterol levels and increase HDL or good cholesterol levels. Healthy cholesterol levels can mean a healthier heart and a longer life.
