Sesame seeds are rich in phytochemicals and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Plant sterols ensure that the cholesterol level can be lowered naturally. Sesame seeds contain haematopoietic iron, bone-strengthening calcium, and selenium, a trace element that strengthens the immune system. Niacin is essential for regenerating skin, muscles, nerves, and DNA. Tocopherol (vitamin E) also protects against free radicals.

Some non-dairy milk is fortified with DHA. A study published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association found that soya milk consumption improved the blood lipid profile of adults with hypercholesterolaemia.Some foods, such as muesli and energy bars, are fortified with DHA. A study published in the Journal of Nutrition found that DHA-fortified foods improve the blood lipid profiles of healthy adults.

A so-called "power-dish" like that which Dr. Neal D.
