Sesamin, a magic component in sesame seeds represents strong antioxidation in life body resulting in multiple physiological functions:
1. Liver guard: Sesamin is a non-competitive inhibitor of Δ5-desaturase, It inhibits the conversion of DGLA to arachidonic acid, and consequently decreases the formation of proinflammatory 2-series prostaglandins.
2. Antioxidation: Sesamin helps protect blood vessels by scavenging free radicals and ensuring efficient nutrient and oxygen delivery for healthy brain function.
3. Antihyprtensive: Sesamin induces nitric oxide and decreases endothelin-1 production in HUVECs, possible implications for its antihypertensive effect.
4. Skin protection: The experiments in rats shows that sesamin can inhibit the growth of SC (skin cancer) cell. It can protect skin from UV rays.
