"Among various medicinal plants, Nigella sativa (N. sativa) (Family Ranunculaceae) is emerging as a miracle herb with a rich historical and religious background since many researches revealed its wide spectrum of pharmacological potential. " Ahmad A, et al (2013)

 "N. sativa has been extensively studied for its biological activities and therapeutic potential and shown to possess wide spectrum of activities viz. as diuretic, antihypertensive, antidiabetic, anticancer and immunomodulatory, analgesic, antimicrobial, anthelmintics, analgesics and anti-inflammatory, spasmolytic, bronchodilator, gastroprotective, hepatoprotective, renal protective and antioxidant properties. The seeds of N. sativa are widely used in the treatment of various diseases like bronchitis, asthma, diarrhea, rheumatism and skin disorders. It is also used as liver tonic, digestive, anti-diarrheal, appetite stimulant, emmenagogue, to increase milk production in nursing mothers to fight parasitic infections, and to support immune system. Most of the therapeutic properties of this plant are due to the presence of thymoquinone (TQ) which is a major active chemical component of the essential oil. Black seeds are also used in food like flavoring additive in the breads and pickles because it has very low level of toxicity." Ahmad A, et al (2013)

If you are looking for support for a coronavirus then you might like to read Kulyar MF et al. (2021) discuss the use of the use of N. sativa biological compounds in COVID-19 patients.

Black Seed Oil Benefits

Due to its miraculous power of healing, the Black Cumin Seed (N. sativa) has got the place among the top ranked evidence based herbal medicines.

AKA blackseed oil or cold pressed black seed oil or cumin seed oil - this truly is a miracle healing oil.

Nature can be one of the best providers of medicine. Sadly, this is overlooked in our current health system. Our ancestors used plants to heal all manner of ailments. Many pharmaceutical drugs are in fact based on plant compounds.

Records suggest that black cumin seed has been used medicinally for thousands of years, especially in the Middle East and Southeast Asia. It is also reported that the Islamic prophet Mohammed claimed that that black seed was a remedy for all diseases except death.

If you, like me, are planning on living a very long and healthy life then I implore you to put this seed on your radar - black cumin seed. If you research 'thymoquinone' in published scientific literature you will find a large volume of evidence supporting this biologically active compound's medicinal qualities. In addition to this special constituent the seed contains dozens of other important active constituents.

Black cumin seeds contain significant levels of iron, copper, zinc, phosphorus, calcium, thiamin, niacin, pyridoxine, and folic acid.

Animal studies have shown that thymoquinone provides hepato-protective effects against toxicity due to heavy metals such as cadmium and lead.

Nigella sativa was found to enhance helper T cell(T4) and suppressor T cell (T8) ratio and increased natural killer (NK) cell activity in healthy volunteers (El-Kadi and Kandil (1986))

“So far, numerous studies demonstrated the seed of Nigella sativa and its main active constituent, thymoquinone, to be medicinally very effective against various illnesses including different chronic illness: neurological and mental illness, cardiovascular disorders, cancer, diabetes, inflammatory conditions, and infertility as well as various infectious diseases due to bacterial, fungal, parasitic, and viral infections.” (Yimer E.M. et al (2019))

“Inflammation has a key role in various medical conditions such as cystic fibrosis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, asthma, allergies, and cancer which all are associated with acute and/or chronic pain. The existing anti-inflammatory agents commonly comprise classes of drugs that produce severe adverse effects such as gastric ulcer, bone marrow depression, water, and salt retention, resulting from the extended use. Medicinal herbs including black cumin might be a potential source of novel biological compounds that are safer and with fewer side effects.” Yimer E.M. et al (2019))

As about 70% of the beneficial compounds are found in the seed itself and 30% in the oil of the seed, it is important to consume a whole foods product. That is why I am recommending Immortal Health Australia - Black Cumin Seed Oil to everyone I meet - there is simply no better quality product on the market. Period.

I take 1 teaspoon straight from a spoon or mix it with my Zinzino BalanceOil+ Omega-3 oil in a shot glass. I consume it with my first meal of the day. I cycle on and off - which means I consume it for about one month then take one month off. My whole family is taking this medicine. 

Culinary Uses

You can also use the oil in your culinary pursuits - it is wonderful in a salad dressing or drizzled on hummus. You can in fact incorporate it into anything you'd normally top with an aromatic oil. Black cumin seed oil has has high anti-oxidant capabilities and in order to preserve the precious nutrients is it best not to heat it.

Natural Beauty Support

And even more exciting is that is makes a wonderful healer for just about any skin ailment or blemish - you can use it neat or mixed with a carrier oil like coconut, jojoba or macadamia oil. Mixed with honey it makes a wonderful face mask or scalp treatment.

Black seed oil can also be diluted with a carrier oil (or added to shampoos) and applied to the scalp to soothe and reduce flakiness.
