The Black Seed Benefits


It has been many years since I first started taking black seed.  In those days, pure black seed was much available compared to the black seed oil.  The black seed has to go through refine processes in order to obtain premium black seed oil.  Let’s look into the black seed benefits.

History of Black SeedThe Black Seed

The use of black seed has long existed.  More than 2000 years ago, people used black seed for series of illnesses and wellness.  Black cumin seed, Roman coriander seed, kalonji, Habbah Barakah, alhabbatussauda, are some of the names used to describe black seed.  The black seed is also mentioned in the Bible in Isiah 28: 25-27 as the ‘fitches’.  However, the scientific name  for black seed is Nigella Sativa.

The black seed comes from a flowering plant found mostly in the Mediterranean, Russia, Turkey, Egypt, France, Germany and many more.

Its richness in nutrients make it a sought after commodity.  There are just too much health boosting properties found in black seed.  The awareness of the miracle of this nature’s pearl has made black seed the lime light of modern scientific research.

“Stay with the black seed, indeed in it are remedies of all illnesses except death”  – the sayings of the Islamic prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).  This statement was made 1400 years ago, but modern science today has discovered that this amazing plant contains medicinal values not to be disputed.

    We have read a number of your posts on this Wonderful Website.
    Your articles are really, really great – full of very well researched information and visually stimulating.
    This article about Black Seed is Very Interesting, a product we knew Nothing about before today.

    If Black Seed is that good, we should all be using it to improve our health.
    Thank you for a very informative read.

    • Hi Geoff-n-Jane,
      Thanks for your recommendation and I will look into it. By the way, for continuous health maintenance, a 5ml oil taken once or twice a day would be sufficient. It is recommended to consume it before going to sleep or in the morning on empty stomach (before breakfast). It might taste a bit ‘strong’ initially but will blend nicely eventually. Just stay consistent with it.
      For therapeutic purposes, a higher dosage would be recommended.
      Hope this help and thanks for your visit. Do come back for more updates on health matters. Take care!
