Organic Black Cumin Seed Oil

Black Cumin (Nigella sativa) is considered one of the most powerful and widely used medicinal plants throughout the world, due to its remarkable healing and health properties. The seeds have been used traditionally for thousands of years in the Middle East and Asia as a food additive and overall herbal health aid. A number of pharmacological actions of N. sativa have been investigated and more than 200 studies have been conducted in universities. Black Cumin is among the top ranked evidence-based herbal medicines.

By HPLC analysis of the N. sativa essential oil, thymoquinone, thymohydroquinone, dithymoquinone, and thymol are considered the main active ingredients. Many pharmacological properties of N. sativa are known to be attributed to the presence of thymoquinone and its antioxidant effects. Thymoquinone protects liver from injury via different mechanisms.
