This little black seed we are going to talk about in this article shouldn’t be confused with any other seed. We are talking about nigella sativa, commonly referred to as simply black seed. However, some people call them black caraway, Roman coriander (not plain coriander), onion seeds, or even kalonji. Occasionally people confuse black seed with chia seeds, cumin seeds or cilantro seeds.  When you go to purchase black seeds — and we are certain that you will after reading this article — be sure that you are getting nigella sativa!

Black seed has a bitter, peppery flavor and smells something like oregano. These are commonly used in Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine. Besides cooking, however, these seeds have been used since ancient times to heal the body with virtually no side effects. Black seeds have anti-ulcer, carminative, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-fungal, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antispasmodic compounds. All of that, packed into one tiny little black seed! It’s almost like Mother Nature designed her own fix-it-all pill.

The health benefits in black seeds come from three main compounds: Thymol, thymohydroquinone (THQ), and thymoquinone (TQ).  Black seeds also have fiber, iron, calcium, protein, carbs, and potassium, and healthy fats. Hippocrates has called these seeds “the cure for everything but death.” He might have been on the right track, as these tiny seeds have health benefits that we are only just beginning to really understand.

Keep reading and find out the top 12 research-backed reasons you should be eating more black seeds.

 

1. Parkinson’s Disease

In a study published in Neuroscience Letters, an extract from black seeds, thymoquinone, was shown to protect the neurons in the brain from toxicity associated with Parkinson’s disease and dementia.

 

2. Post-Surgical Scar Prevention

If you have ever had surgery of any kind, you know that the scars it can leave behind are terrible. Black seed has been found to protect skin surfaces from the typical scarring or adhesion formation that occurs after surgery.

 

3.  Helps with Hypertension

Black sees have been shown to have an anti-hypertensive effect, according to a 2008 study published in the Fundamental & Clinical Pharmacology Journal. Daily use of black seed extract over the two month study period had significant blood pressure lowering effects for those subjects who had mildly high blood pressure.  This might be due to the seeds’ ability to lower the LDL (bad) cholesterol levels and improve overall heart health. To reduce hypertension, ask your doctor if 100 to 200 g of black seed extract twice a day might be right for you. Never stop taking your regular medication or take any supplement without consulting your doctor.

    Do you know that there is a great Herbal doctor who can cure any deadly disease. Like Cancer, Hiv, syphilis, diebeties, madness, low spam count And also bring back your Lover e.t.c. Well my main reason why i am writing this right now is to inform the whole world about the great deeds, Dr. ABU did for me. I was diagnosed of this deadly disease in the year 2000 ever since then i was taking my medications, until i met the great spell caster, though i never believed in spell. I saw many testimonies on how a great spell caster cured their deadly diseases. I contacted him through his phone number. I called him, he asked me to send him my email, which i did. He gave me a form to fill, I filled it and send it back to him. He told me that his god’s required some items in which he will use in casting a curing spell on me. I don’t know where to find the items he required. He told me that the only alternative is for of to send him the money, then he can help me to purchase the items from the items sellers. I promised myself to do anything to get cured. I sent him the money. He bought the items and casted a curing spell on me. Two day later he asked me to go for check-up, when i did the check-up i was tested HIV Negative. If you passing through hardship and you need a way out, kindly contact him via his email on [email protected]

    Join the discussion… PLEASE PARDON ME, I JUST HAVE TO SHARE THIS MY LIFE TESTIMONY HERE ON HOW I GOT A CURE FOR HIV … I was diagnosed of HIV until i heard of a traditional doctor with lot of testimonies and post from people making reference to DOCTOR dikogbo on how he used his spiritual herbal medicine called TATAHWE to cure them of their diseases. Some from HIV ( with a very low cd4 count), HEPATITIS, HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS , DIABETIC, CANCER, ASTHMA and many more… Although i did not believe in Native herbs I decided to give it a trial so I took his contact and messaged him via whatsapp chat ( +2348103005451 ),with the response he gave, he promised to prepare a medicine for me that will flush the virus away from my system totally and It was not up to a week after I placed an order, I got the medicine and he instructed me to drink the medicine for two weeks ( morning and evening) after which, I should go back to the hospital for a Re-Test. I followed his instructions and I went for the test the following week after i had finish taken the Tatahwe medicine,its very surprising i tested negative. I can’t thank dr Boadi enough, so I decided to promote him because he cured me from my disease, there’s no disease he can’t cure. PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL OF FAKE DOCTORS AND IMPERSONATOR ONLINE ALL THEY DO IS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE ON PATIENT WITH THIS VIRUS WITHOUT SOLUTION OR SENDING MEDICINE. I WAS ONCE A VICTIM OF FRAUD BEFORE I HEARD OF THIS MAN. AND I RECEIVED THE MEDICINE BEFORE SENDING HIM CHARGES. For more information you can contact Dr dikogbo. At +2348103005451.

    my husband suffers from asthma and because of that he could not exercise or play a lot of outdoor games with the kids, he was on high doses of inhalers and steroids which was weakening his immune system. then a colleague suggested black seed oil tea and we never expected such positive results. black seed oil is an anti-inflammatory agent which helped to reduce inflammation in his lungs and air ways. i believe it has improved his immune system as well as he doesn’t need to use the inhalers as frequently as he used to and he the intensity of the attacks has reduced too.

  • Black seed oil is the best. We all use it to get rid of many ailments. The best is strong black seed oil.
