Known as a ‘miracle herb’, Nigella Sativa has been used for centuries as a medicinal plant throughout the entire world. The Prophet Mohammad had described the healing powers of the Black Seeds against a variety of diseases. In Islamic literature, it is considered one of the greatest forms of healing medicine-and has great value today!
With the evolution of antibiotic resistance against bacteria, fungus, bacteria, and viruses, it seems to make really good sense to eat a plant that has survived for multiple centuries, like Nigella (aka Black Cumin Seed).
The seed is not only the main reproductive organ of an herb but considered a nutritional powerhouse in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The seed possesses important medicinal properties and is often used as a component in modern-day pharmaceutical products. In Nigella Sativa’s case, Thymoquinone is an emerging natural drug with a wide range of medical applications.
The seeds/oil have anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antipyretic (to reduce fever), antimicrobial, and antineoplastic (cancer) activity. In recent decades, it’s been clinically observed and proven to be highly supportive of the body in general, including:
Addictions including Opioid dependence
Allergies including Seasonal Allergies
Auto-Immune including Hashimoto’s
Brain Support-especially substantia nigra (associated with Parkinson’s and Neurodegeneration)
Histamine Intolerance- is now being observed as a key indicator for all female issues including excessive bleeding, painful periods, and PMS.
