Sesame helps more in controlling blood pressure. Sesame is hot. Hence it protects a lot during the cold season. Sesame contains nutrients such as magnesium, zinc, calcium, iron, and selenium which also protect against heart problems. Dietary protein and amino acids in it make bones strong. Also, if we talk about jaggery, then it is rich in nutrients like its name. It contains iron, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, magnesium as well as vitamins A and B and glucose which protects us from problems like blood pressure and anemia.
