The Health Benefits Of Blackseed Oil

Recommended Posts

The Health Benefits of Black Seed

 

Mahfouz and El-Dakhakhny, prominent Egyptian researchers isolated the active principle nigellone from Black Seed's essential oil in 1959. There are over 100 different chemical components in the seed.

 

 

Nigella and melatin are two ingredients in Black Seed that contribute greatly to its highly diversified powers. These substances work together to provide the digestive benefits that have been revered in Black Seed. They also promote cleansing and assist with overall eliminating action.

 

 

 

Two of the most volatile oils found in Black seed are nigellone and thymoquinone which were fist discovered in the herb in 1985. Nigellone offers both anti-spasmodic and bronchodilating properties which contribute to Black Seed's potency against respiratory ailments. It also acts as an antihistamine which helps to reduce the negative symptoms of allergy sufferers. Thymoquinone contains excellent anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. It is also a strong anti-oxidant and helps cleanse the body of toxins. Both nigellone and thymoquinone work in conjunction with one another to enhance Black Seed's action against respiratory ailments. It also provides a healthy alternative to the more commonly prescribed cortisone based therapies used by allergy sufferers.

 

Black seed provides a rich supply of polyunsaturated fatty acids. These ingredients play a key role in daily health and wellness. They help to regulate the metabolism, carry toxins to the skin's surface for elimination, balance insulin levels, regulate cholesterol, improve body circulation, and promote healthy liver function. A deficiency in polyunsaturated fatty acids can lead to a wide number of health problems including nervous system disorders, uninhibited growths, and skin diseases.

 

Black seed contains over 100 valuable nutrients. It is comprised of approximately 21% protein, 38% carbohydrates, and 35% plant fats and oils. The active ingredients of black seed are nigellone, thymoquinone, and fixed oils. Black seed also contains significant proportions of protein, carbohydrates and essential fatty acids. Other ingredients include linoleic acid, oleic acid, calcium, potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium, selenium, vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin B2, niacin, and vitamin C.

 

A 1994 study conducted in London by King's College revealed that Black Seed has properties that inhibit certain enzymes, which also inhibit the production of certain prostaglandins. This is more proof that the rich and complex combination of elements found in Black Seed work together for a total effect.

Black Seed Oil (Nigella Sativa)

 

 

100% pure, cold pressed, GMO, solvent & additive free and comes from the highest quality seeds.

 

 

Extracts from "Black Seed Natures Miracle Remedy" by W.G. Goreja

 

 

 

For thousands of years, humans around the world have recognized the tremendous healing properties of a legendary herb - Nigella Sativa, or Black Seed.

 

 

 

"Black Seed heals every disease except for death." The Prophet Mohammed proclaimed over fourteen hundred years ago. It's quite a statement; but..

 

 

 

The protective and healing powers of Black Seed, the seeds from the plant Nigella Sativa, are so astoundingly comprehensive and varied that for thousands of years humans have regarded it as a "Miracle Cure".

 

 

 

Black Seed has an unprecedented strengthening effect upon the immune system, and works in a host of other ways to promote optimum health and well being. It works by assisting the body in its own natural healing processes.

 

 

 

This remarkable herb has a legendary status and has had a recent resurgence in Western medicine. Its efficacy is solidly backed by three thousand years of folklore and the past fifty years have seen a burgeoning amount of scientific data to further support Black Seed's renowned healing properties.

 

 

 

'We now realize that a complex synergy of over 100 chemicals contained in Black Seed work together to enhance and strengthen the body's immune system in a way no other singular, naturally occurring substance has ever been known to do'.

 

 

 

The very fact that Black Seed targets the vital workings of the immune system grants it power over a wide range of ailments, both as a treatment and preventative. Consequently, Black Seed has proved itself a forceful ally against many ailments, such as those caused by bacteria, viruses, and common allergies.

 

 

 

It has also proved valuable against such fatal diseases as cancer and AIDS.* When it comes to health and well-being, a strong immune system is vital, and the properties of Black Seed are key to regaining the efficient functioning of your immune system and maintaining its optimum effectiveness. Furthermore, Black Seed is a potent, antihistamine, anti-tumour,* antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory agent, and the application of these actions alone provides relief for a multitude of ailments and disorders.

 

 

Black seed has such diverse powers that, before we examine the specific uses of the herb, let's recap the variety of actions that it provides. Although many more can be listed from centuries of use, the actions that follow have all been verified through scientific research conducted over the last fifty years.

 

 

Black Seed's Mechanisms of Action

 

Analgesic: Relieves or dampens sensation of pain.

Anthelmintic: (Also know as vermicide or vermifuge) destroys and expels intestinal worms.

Anti-bacterial: Destroys or inhibits the growth of destructive bacteria.

Anti-Inflammatory: Reduces inflammation.

Anti-Microbial: Destroys or inhibits the growth of destructive microorganisms.

Antioxidant: Prevents or delays the damaging oxidisation of the body's cells - particularly useful against free radicals.

Anti-Pyretic: (Also known as ferbrifuge) - exhibits a 'cooling action', useful in fever reduction.

Anti-spasmodic: Prevents or eases muscle spasms and cramps.

Anti-tumour: Counteracts or prevents the formation of malignant tumours*

Carminative: Stimulates digestion and induces the expulsion of gas from the stomach and the intestines.

Diaphoretic: Induces perspiration during fever to cool and stimulate the release of toxins.

Diuretic: Stimulates urination to relieve bloating and rid the body of any excess water.

Digestive: Stimulates bile and aids in the digestive process.

Emmenagogue: Stimulates menstrual flow and activity.

Galactogogue: Stimulates the action of milk in new mothers.

Hypotensive: Reduces excess blood pressure.

Immunomodulator: Suppresses or strengthens immune system activity as needed for optimum balance.

Laxative: Causes looseness or relaxation of the bowels.

 

My Understanding of Black Seed Oil by John Claydon D.Hom

 

In what way does Black Seed oil, as a broad-spectrum remedy, differ from the other broad-spectrum remedies or superfoods, such as Chlorella, Barley Grass and Pollen?

 

It does not contain such a complete range of nutrients as the super foods mentioned, so falls midway between a herbal remedy and a functional food and Black Seed Oil has many health benefits. Superfoods can gradually improve the overall health by addressing the problem of cellular malnutrition - the long term basis of all chronic disease.

 

Cellular malnutrition in the first world is due to many factors such as farming methods that deplete the soils essential nutrients, and supply us with 'empty food'. The practice of cooking food denatures and impedes absorption, combined with impaired digestion. Other factors including eating refined foods and a toxic environment. These all contribute to cellular starvation of essential fluids and nutrients.

 

With regular consumption of superfoods we can gradually improve the state of our cellular nutrition, and in turn health will gradually improve, although improvements in vitality can often occur quickly. However, certain organs and systems of the body can remain below par even after a comprehensive nutritional and dietary programme has been in use for many months. In other words there are certain stubborn issues our bodies do not give up easily.

 

For example liver congestion, an almost universal occurrence, can be quite stubborn. You may choose to use a Liver/Gall Bladder Flush and this can often help. You can also use black seed oil (we cannot guarantee that this will clear out all your stones and 'mud' in the liver gall bladder region, it depends on many factors, but even with the flush procedure 6 or more flushes may be needed). I have found that after only a few days of using black seed oil it has improved liver function and associated digestive problems. The warming and bitter qualities seem to penetrate into blockages in the body and rapidly instigate normalisation.

 

Two persons with toothache were much improved soon after rubbing the oil into the effected gum. In the short term of my familiarity of this product, it appears to be one of those remedies that are very potent, highly effective, and able to target a wide range of health problems.

 

Some of the health conditions it has improved

 

Gastrointestinal dysfunction - flatulence, diarrhoea and constipation.

Liver dysfunction - underactivity, congestion, jaundice. Galls stones.

Kidney ailments - urination difficulties, urinary infections, cystitis.

Respiratory ailments - infection, cough, sore throat, congestion, bronchial inflammation, asthma. Bronchial-dilating properties.

Menstrual problems

Parasites

Hair and skin care - promotes follicle growth and helps to prevent dandruff.

Immune system - improves overall function, resistance to infection but also stabilises, helping to eliminate auto-immune diseases. Stimulates production of bone marrow.

Hypertension - Animal studies have shown benefits in this area such as a marked drop in arterial pressure after only 15 days of use. The anti-oxidant properties of black seed may account for its usefulness in treating hypertension and other cardio-vascular disorders.

 

Diabetes

 

 

 

Various animals have been studied in relation to diabetes/high blood sugar. All showed a significant decrease in glucose levels after 48 hours of supplementation with black seed oil. Blood glucose levels continued to fall for up to a few weeks, when a levelling occurred and a therapeutic balance was maintained. The prominent physician and herbalist Muhammed Salim Khan has confirmed the benefits with human subjects. The best results with diabetes will be obtained by combining black seed oil with dietary adjustment, involving a low carbohydrate diet that includes raw fats and protein (see Dietary Guidelines)

 

 

 

Allergies

 

 

 

Black seed has powerful anti-inflammatory, bronchial-dilating and anti-histamine properties, and as such is an excellent agent against allergic reactions and states. In one study on 600 allergic patients, 70% were completely cured of their allergies. The symptoms of allergy apparently included hay fever and asthma, skin disorders such as rashes, dandruff or inflammations, fatigue, bowel disturbances or lowered sex drive.

In most cases the usual dose is 1 t. of oil with one t. of honey one hour before eating. It must be on an empty stomach. Many who need to take more for an illness can also take 1 t. of oil with 1 t. of honey.

 

Many companies do talk of one tablespoon, but more is not necessary. If you prefer to take the blackseed ground, then you can take it at a higher amount, but again 1 t. is sufficient.

 

Black seed needs to be taken daily and then when you have an illness or a problem, the mere increasing of it will quickly alieviate the problem.

 

It should be noted especially for new people that the black seeds must be heated until all the hotness has been removed and then ground. The tradional way to use blackseed is with honey. It is a great treat and very delicious. Most place the jar half full with ground black seed and add half of raw honey. The use of raw honey is very important.

 

If you are using regular seeds, you can eat at any time of the day and it does not need to be on a empty stomach.

 

No cure will work without faith. So belief in the cure is first and always thank Allah, swt, for this blessing and speak his name before taking.

 

There are many companies who are selling black seed and there are many that are not good. Never buy from a company who claims it is black caraway as the black caraway and the black cumin are two different plants.

 

I am a mod of a black seed forum so if you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

You are a new Muslim but look to the hadith:

 

Black Seed cures every disease except death. As a Muslim we never question what our Prophet has spoken. But just in case you still have doubts, here is my personal forum.

Black Seed Research Data

 

 

Research from around the world is producing increasing supportive documentation regarding Black Seed's vast healing properties. Due to its amazing effect on the immune system, Black Seed aids and supplements the body's own ability to heal.

 

The Cancer Immune-Biology Laboratory of South Carolina published results on a study they did on Black Seed. It stated "Black Cumin Oil (Black Seed) generally helps stimulate the production of bone marrow and cells of the immune system. It increases the production of interferon, protects normal cells from the damaging effects of viral disease, destroys tumor cells and increases the number of antibody producing B cells.

 

The effects of Black Cumin Oil on humans were recently also studied in Germany. A Munich immunologist, Dr. Peter Schleicher, closely co-operated with institutions in the United States and has, as a result, written two books on the subject containing numerous recipes for the treatment of a wide variety of ailments. Most of them are skin disorders or allergy related conditions, like asthma and hay fever and are far too numerous to be listed here.

 

One book, Black Cumin: Magical Egyptian Herb by Peter Schleicher, M.D., and Mohamed Saleh, M.D. explores the extraordinary effectiveness of black cumin against immune-system disorders, allergies, asthma, and skin problems.

 

This book is an excellent resource for anyone interested in the healing properties of this incredible plant. It contains everything you need to know in order to use black seed for the prevention and treatment of illness, including specific recipes for infections and allergies, and precise directions for their preparation. The authors even provide a section on the use of black seed as a beauty aid and as a culinary staple.

Protective effect of black seed oil from Nigella sativa against murine cytomegalovirus infection

Mohamed Labib Salem a,and Mohammad Sohrab Hossainb

a Department of Immunology, Medical Institute of Bioregulation, Kyushu University, 3-1-1 Maidashi, Higashi-ku, Fukuoka 812-8582, Japan and Center for AIDS Research, Division of Virology, Kumamoto University, Kohonji, Japan

 

Received 19 November 1999; accepted 20 April 2000. Available online 6 July 2000.

 

Abstract

 

In this study, antiviral effect of black seed oil (BSO) from Nigella sativa was investigated using murine cytomegalovirus (MCMV) as a model. The viral load and innate immunity mediated by NK cells and M during early stage of the infection were analyzed. Intraperitoneal (i.p.) administration of BSO to BALB/c mice, a susceptible strain of MCMV infection, strikingly inhibited the virus titers in spleen and liver on day 3 of infection with 1×105 PFU MCMV. This effect coincided with an increase in serum level of IFN-γ. Although BSO treatment decreased both number and cytolytic function of NK cells on day 3 of infection, it increased numbers of M and CD4+ T cells. On day 10 of infection, the virus titer was undetectable in spleen and liver of BSO-treated mice, while it was detectable in control mice. Although spleen of both control and BSO-treated mice showed similar CTL activities on day 10 after infection, serum level of IFN-γ in BSO-treated mice was higher. Furthermore, BSO treatment upregulated suppressor function of M in spleen. These results show that BSO exhibited a striking antiviral effect against MCMV infection which may be mediated by increasing of M number and function, and IFN-γ production.

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) including nitric oxide (NO) are thought to be involved in inflammatory processes, exacerbating inflammation and tissue damage in multiple sclerosis (MS). The oil extracts of Nigella sativa (N. sativa) has been known as an antioxidant and antiinflammatory agent. The aim of the present study was to investigate the hypothesis that N. sativa components provide protection against oxidative stress induced by experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) in rats. For this purpose, EAE was induced in rats by using guinea pig myelin basic protein (MBP) in Freud's adjuvant with addition of heat-killed M. Tuberculosis H37Ra to test this hypothesis. In study groups, N. sativa was given by oral gavage to the rats. Treatment of the rats with N. sativa inhibited ROS production induced by EAE showing diminished levels of MDA of both brain and medulla spinalis tissues. Although there was a significant decrease in brain NO level, there was an increase in medulla spinalis NO level after EAE induction in rats. N. sativa regulated tissue NO levels in some extend when applied together with EAE. When N. sativa was given alone to the rats, no changes were shown in brain, medulla spinalis, and serum oxidant/antioxidant parameters. In conclusion, N sativa may protect brain and medulla spinalis tissues against oxidative stress induced by EAE. In addition, N. sativa display its antioxidant and regulatory effects via inflammatory cells rather than the host tissue (brain and medulla spinalis) for EAE in rats.

 

The results of this research were presented at the 5th World Congress of Veterinary Dermatology in Vienna in August 2004 and have been published as an Abstract in the Special Congress Issue, Supplement to the Journal of Veterinary Dermatology, vol. 15, 2004.

Narrated By Abu Huraira: I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "There is healing in black cumin for all diseases except death."

I never knew that this was a belief in Islam and thought the claim incredible enough that I wanted to see the hadith myself. I'm quoting it here for anyone else who may have wanted the address and quotation for the source of the claim regarding black cumin (or black seed).
