Black seed oil is a remedy for every disease except death. (Sahih Bukhari)
Upon reading the long list of ailments for which Black Seed is supposed to provide relief, many people react with disbelief. But the protective and healing powers of Black Seed are real, and they do not seem so impossible once we learn that they all stem mainly from Black Seed’s ability to stabilize and strengthen the body’s immune system. For thousands of years, Black Seed has been used as a virtual cure-all. Its traditional applications range from skincare to digestion and fertility. With a long and amazing history of beneficial use, Black Seed has been the subject of much modern research and the last few decades have provided scientific evidence for many of Black Seed’s healing powers.
An Ancient Tradition
The use of Black Seed as a healing herb has been traced back more than 3000 years to the Assyrians and ancient Egypt. The oil pressed from Black Seed was known as the "Pharaohs’ Oil" for it was the chosen treatment for numerous ailments and infections. The use of Black Seed soon spread to other parts of Africa and the Middle East and was well known by the sixth century when the Prophet Muhammad is reported to have said "Hold on to the use of Black Seed for it has a remedy for every illness except death". Evidence of the therapeutic use of Black Seed has been found all over the world, in Ancient Greece and Rome as well as Persia, India and China.
The works of Hippocrates, Dioscurides and Avicenna all show appreciation for the preventive and curative powers of Black Seed. Black Seed has been an essential ingredient in Eastern medicine as well, especially Ayurveda. In more recent times, Black Seed has been recommended as a herbal medicine by the World Health Organization, and ongoing scientific research in the West is continuously confirming the truth behind the tradition of Black Seed.
A Modern Rediscovery
In the last fifty years, Black Seed has been the subject of over two hundred university studies and research papers. The oil extracted from Black Seed (Nigella Sativa) has a rich composition of more than 100 compounds including essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. The special powers of Black Seed are thought to result from a complex synergistic interaction of all these components. Scientists have yet to identify all the ingredients in this amazing herb, but they have been able to verify its beneficial use for the following complaints and symptoms of disease:
Digestive complaints and related metabolic disorders, including raised cholesterol levels and adult-onset diabetes.
Disorders of the immune system and their manifestations, including: allergic reactions like bronchial asthma, hay fever, and various skin diseases; and lowered immune resistance leading to chronic susceptibility to infection.
Respiratory disorders, including bronchitis.
Disorders of the hormonal system, including menstrual and menopausal complaints, depression and infertility. Circulatory and vascular disorders like high blood pressure and hemorrhoids.
General decrease in vitality, concentration difficulties and sleep disturbances.
Recent studies have focused on the regulatory influence of Black Seed on the immune system. Research has shown that regular use of Black Seed helped to strengthen and stabilize the immune system, thus enabling a variety of other illnesses to be eliminated or, at least, relieved. In related studies, scientists have found that Black Seed stimulates bone marrow and immune cell formation, protects the body against viruses, destroys tumor cells and inhibits infection. Work done at various cancer research institutes have also indicated that Black Seed holds "remarkable promise for clinical use in cancer treatment". Other clinical research has shown that the use of Black Seed significantly improves the T-cell ratio and at the same time enhances the natural killer cell activity. Thus Black Seed has much potential in the treatment of immune-deficiency diseases like cancer and AIDS.
Prevention is Better than Cure
Constant stress, psychological strain, environmental toxins, lack of sleep or exercise and an unbalanced diet are almost expected conditions of life in modern society.
Yet these are all factors which lead to a weakened immune system. The immune system and the digestive system are not only the main areas for the body’s defenses but they are also the points where many health disorders originate. Black Seed has both a strengthening effect on the immune system as well as a detoxifying effect on the digestive system.
When taken regularly as part of a healthy lifestyle, Black Seed helps to stabilize and rebuild our body’s defense mechanisms in a gentle and natural way. It is an ideal supplement for health and well being.
