Study: Sesame Seeds Work Better Than Tylenol “Drug” to Ease Knee Pain


According to study by Azerbaijan’s Tabriz University of Medical Sciences, shows that sesame seed supplementation can significantly improve clinical signs and symptoms of patients with knee osteoarthritis.

“A two month study showed that eating 4 tablespoons of Sesame Seeds (about 40 grams) was superior to 1000 mg of Tylenol for knee arthritis.” – With none of the adverse side effects, (like liver and kidney damage, asthma, heart attack, internal bleeding or death.)


“Subjects in the control group (25 patients) received 40 g placebo powder per day with standard drug therapy, including two lots of 500 mg
acetaminophen twice a day and one glucosamine 500 mg once a day; however, the intervention group (25 patients) received 40 g of sesame per day by oral administration during the 2-month trial with the standard drug therapy, as previously mentioned (Figure 1).” 

Traditional treatments for osteoarthritis involve NSAID medications, such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen medications (Tylenol). However, these drugs do have risks and can trigger liver problems and so much more. Note: another trade name for Tylenol is Panadol. The non-proprietary name used in the US is acetaminophen, while the name paracetamol is used elsewhere in the world.

On the other hand, sesame seeds are rich in minerals so they undoubtedly have health benefits. Sesame seeds an excellent source of copper and a very good source of manganese, but they are also a good source of calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc, molybdenum, selenium, and dietary fiber.


Copper plays an important role in the activity of lysyl oxidase, an enzyme needed for the cross-linking of collagen and elastin—the ground substances that provide structure, strength and elasticity in blood vessels, bones and joints.
