In traditional Chinese medicine, black sesame seeds have sweet and neutral properties, and are associated with the kidney and liver meridians. They function to tonify yin jing and blood, moisten the intestines, and help build the spirit, or shen.  

A good source of calcium, fiber, iron, protein, phosphorus, magnesium and more. Sesame seeds have a nutty, slightly sweet flavor and aroma that is enhanced by lightly heating. Mix black sesame seeds with honey  to create a sweet treat called Helva.  In ancient times, women are believed to have eaten this mixture to prolong youth and beauty, while Roman soldiers ate this  mixture for strength and energy.
