Almonds are high in vitamin B and E and essential fatty acids; sesame and molasses are an excellent source of minerals and trace minerals; and the seeds oil also supply essential fatty acids, such as linoleic acid.

- Intellectual strain, such as that carried out by students during times of exams.
- Physical strain, due to intense work or sports competition.
- Pregnancy and lactation.
