(NaturalHealth365) Vitamin T studies are rare in today’s scientific community, so there isn’t a lot of information about the properties and application it may have. However, this shouldn’t stop anyone from incorporating this time-tested, valuable nutrient.
We do know that vitamin T regulates the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats within the body. It helps produce red blood cells and helps with the proper functioning of the nervous system.
And, as for the immune system – vitamin T supports the formation of white blood cells, and is particularly important in the prevention of some forms of anemia and hemophilia.
The key to unlocking the power of carbohydrates
Vitamin T regulates the metabolism of homo-cytosine and fixes problems related to skin pigmentation. In addition, this essential nutrient helps to breakdown carbohydrates – so they can be released as useable energy.
Vitamin T is known as the “sesame seed factor” – since this is the best source of it. An interesting fact, Halvah – a high protein food made from sesame seeds was credited with keeping the army of Alexander the Great in fighting shape.
The only food sources which contain vitamin T in any significant amount are sesame seeds, tahini, egg yolks, and pumpkin seeds. Since vitamin T positively affects the overall health by eliminating prerequisites for the development of disease, it is known as a preventative factor for human health.
Another reason to limit alcohol consumption
Little is known about what the proper levels of vitamin T should be, but by getting it in a food source there is no reason to worry about getting too much. Keep in mind, the regular consumption of alcohol can easily lead to a vitamin T deficiency.
There are a few enterprising integrative doctors who had given childhood leukemia patient’s 6 tablespoons of sesame butter a day to put them in remission. It has been shown that the exposure of human lymphoid leukemia cells to sesaminol, a component of sesame oil, leads to inhibiting the growth and the induction of apoptosis (cell suicide) in leukemia cells.
Is vitamin T really a vitamin?
According to the “standard” definition, a vitamin is defined as a nutrient that in small doses is an important regulator of metabolism. There’s only one problem – Vitamin T doesn’t meet the criteria of a vitamin simply because it’s being ignored by the scientific community. Since there is very little data on vitamin T – we could call it the “forgotten vitamin”.
Unfortunately, manufacturers of nutritional supplements haven’t included any mention of vitamin T – but who cares – at least we have a reliable (sustainable) source of vitamin T in sesame seeds.
We do know vitamin T is water soluble, which means it would be almost impossible to over eat – although anything is possible. Remember, vitamin T is a natural ingredient and by having it made into a synthetic (pill) form would sacrifice its performance and safety. So, sprinkling some organic, sesame seeds on your favorite foods or create a delicious salad dressing with tahini and enjoy!
