Known in the Middle East as the ‘Seed of Blessing’, the oil of the Nigella Sativa plant has been used to promote supreme health and wellbeing for thousands of years. Archaeologists have confirmed that a bottle of Black Seed Oil was discovered in the Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s tomb, presumably for use in the afterlife. Whilst Black Seed Oil has also been used by practitioners of ancient medicines for thousands of years, it is still relatively unknown in the West. Here are seven reasons why is will change your life:
1. IMMUNE FUNCTION
Black Seed Oil stimulates the production of bone marrow and cells of the immune system, supporting the entire body in its disease-fighting efforts. Dr. Gary Null states, “Every time you take black cumin you are stimulating your immune system to fight on your behalf and increase natural killer cells.” (1) Thus, referring to its ability to improve the immune system and help treat even the most impossible invaders.
Studies have shown that consuming Black Seed Oil may also assist in improving liver and kidney function, preventing both damage and disease (2). These vital organs are essential to the body’s detoxification process, helping to digest fats and keep your mind and body happy and healthy.
3. BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS
Recent research suggests that Black Seed Oil may help in the regeneration of pancreatic beta cells and improve glucose tolerance as efficiently as the most commonly prescribed drugs without the adverse effects. (3) This is actually quite profound as it suggests that Black Seed Oil is one of the few substances on the planet that can achieve such results naturally.
4. WEIGHT LOSS
A recent article listed Black Seed Oil as one of them most powerful anti-obesity medicinal plants, alongside the more well-known green tea, which is used in many popular fat-burning supplements (4). By decreasing weight gain triggers, reducing appetite and reducing glucose absorption, Black Seed Oil is one of the most potent natural weight-loss remedies on the planet.
5. HAIR & BEAUTY
Perhaps one of the reasons Cleopatra was so fond of Black Seed Oil, was due to its beautifying effects on the hair and skin. Shown to promote the synthesis of melanin, the substance responsible for the colour of healthy skin, glossy hair and bright eyes (5). It is also used to treat hair loss and by strengthening hair follicles.
6. IMPROVED DIGESTION
Gastrointestinal disease affects millions of people all over the world, however, a definite cure has yet to be discovered, with many synthetic drugs causing several side effects. Studies have shown that Black Seeds and Black Seed Oil have several therapeutic effects on the gastrointestinal tract which are attributed to the anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties of its naturally-occurring constituents such as thymoquinine (6).
Finally, whilst there are literally hundreds more reason why Black Seed Oil will change your life, perhaps the most profound one is a combination of all – ultimately, its remarkable potential to prolong it, beyond standard life expectancy. By helping the body prevent disease and fight infection, rebuild and repair itself from the inside out, keep the mind sharp and the mood elevated, Black Seed Oil may just be the secret to a long and healthy life.
