Benefits of Tahini
Before you make your tahini dressing, a little bit about the magical ingredient! Tahini is a paste made from sesame seeds, which are very high in copper. Copper is an essential mineral for the body to produce hair colouring amongst many other important roles in metabolising nutrients. Another mineral found in high quantities in sesame seeds is magnesium which helps to calm the nerves and relax the muscles. It is essential for metabolism and production of serotonin.
