Sesame Oil May Help Support Cognitive Function

Sesame oil cake is the protein-rich by-product obtained after extracting oil from sesame seeds. According to a recent study, sesame oil cake extract may provide cognitive benefits for people with mild cognitive impairment.

Seventy people with mild cognitive impairment and over the age of 60 participated in the study. They were given 1.5 grams of sesame oil extract or a placebo daily for 12 weeks. Cognitive function was evaluated at baseline and at the end of the study period using a computerized neurocognitive function test. Blood samples were used to measure biomarkers of mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease.

At the end of the study period, participants in the sesame oil cake group saw significant improvements in verbal memory scores compared to the placebo group. They also saw significant decreases in blood concentrations of amyloid-beta, which is a predictive biomarker in the onset of cognitive decline.

The study was conducted by researchers from Jeonbuk National University Hospital,. It was published online ahead of print on July 28, 2021, in the journal Nutrients.
