Sesame seeds has many benefits, one of them is  it contains high levels of zinc, a vital component in the formation of collagen, which strengthens the muscle tissue, hair, and skin.  Sesame seeds are packed with unique organic compounds, such as sesamolin, as well as minerals like copper, calcium, iron, and manganese, as well as vitamins and fiber. These seeds may be small, but they pack a major health punch and can help with everything from digestion and circulation to bone strength and inflammation. And spinach has many benefits too, to name a few. It’s  good for the skin, eyesight, healthy blood pressure, stronger muscles, and boosted growth for infants.
