“Black seed” oil, or Nigella Sativa, has made its mark in the medicinal world recently and has become one of the best things you could ever incorporate into your system.
Inside these tiny little seeds is contained a highly complex chemical structure that includes over one hundred different chemical constituents such as abundant sources of essential fatty acids. Typically, the oil is used for medicinal purposes, and the spicy little seeds are used in cooking: curries, pastries, and Mediterranean cheeses.
When combined with garlic, black seeds have been touted as a harmonizer of the imbalance which causes immune cells to attack and destroy healthy cells. Considering that these little seeds are packed with so many healing constituents, and with such a long history as a cure-all, it comes as no surprise that many people throughout Asia and the Mediterranean believe that black cumin can combat anything that ails us.
Benefits of Black Seed Oil:
• Cancer Fighting
Thymoquinone, found in black cumin, is an effective cancer fighter against cancer of the blood, lungs, kidneys, liver, prostate, breast, cervix and skin. As an antioxidant, it improves the body’s defense system and induces apoptosis, which eliminates unneeded cells, and unhealthy cancer cells.
• Liver Function and Health
Poor liver function caused by various medicinal side effects, alcohol consumption, or disease can be greatly helped with black seed oil. This wonder oil helps the liver to function better, as well as preventing damage and disease.
Black seed oil has been found to cause gradual regeneration of pancreatic beta-cells, which increase the lowered insulin concentrations and decreased elevated glucose. This makes black seed oil one of the only available substances on planet earth that are said to truly prevent both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
• Weight Loss
As an anti-inflammatory, black seed oil is touted to aid in weight loss the same way that it helps prevent and treat diabetes. Since it decreases weight gain triggers, black seed oil has assisted millions of people with weight loss.
• Hair Growth
This magnificent oil has the ability to restore hair loss. Unfortunately, it is not entirely understood what causes this wonderful side effect, but the antioxidant and antimicrobial properties probably have a lot to do with it. By strengthening the hair follicles, it promotes strengthened and healthy hair roots.
Since it inhibits melanin production, black seed oil is wonderfully beneficial to the cells that promote healthier skin.
• Superbug Infections (MRSA)
Methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a highly deadly and damaging disease that can be associated with major surgery, intravenous tubing, and implants of artificial joints. Fortunately, black seed oil is known for its ability to slow down or stop MRSA from spreading too far out of control.
