Black sesame seeds are a medicinal food used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to treat a variety of conditions, including liver-yin deficiency, kidney yin-deficiency, blood-deficient, yin-deficient, and intestines-dry patterns. They are believed to tonify the liver and kidneys, augment yin and blood, and moisten the intestines. Black sesame seeds should be used with caution in people with diarrhea or spleen deficiency, as they may exacerbate these conditions. They are neutral in temperature and have a sweet taste, and are believed to affect the kidney, liver, and large intestine channels in the body. It is important to consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using black sesame seeds to ensure they are appropriate for your individual needs.
