This beauty and health secret was so powerful that the prophet Mohammad reportedly said it could cure anything but death itself.
History even shows that physicians to the ancient Pharaohs used the seeds to calm upset stomachs after extravagant feasts.
Queen Nefertiti, admired for her stunning beauty, most likely used it
to boost the beauty of her skin, hair and nails.
This ancient beauty secret can be found in many household spice cabinets. It may be one of the most important and overlooked (at least here in America) all natural remedies in modern history.
Black Cumin Oil (Nigella Sativa) has powerful anti-aging properties, and even more remarkable health benefits.
Black cumin oil has been used for many centuries in the Middle East, the Mediterranean and India. Besides their culinary uses, black cumin has a wealth of important health benefits and is considered one of the most medicinal seeds in history.
According to Tony Isaaacs, a natural health author, advocate and researcher:
The seeds of the black cumin plant contain over 100 chemical compounds, including some yet to be identified. In addition to what is believed to be the primary active ingredient, crystalline nigellone, black cumin seeds contain: thymoquinone, beta sitosterol, myristic acid, palmitic acid, palmitoleic acid, stearic acid, oleic acid, linoleic acid, linolenic acid, arachidonic acid, protein, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B3, folic acid, calcium, iron, copper, zinc, and phosphorous.
Hundreds of studies have been conducted on black cumin which have shown that compounds from the seeds help fight diseases by boosting the production of bone marrow, natural interferon, and immune cells. Several of the studies have shown that black cumin seed extract could assist individuals with autoimmune disorders and could possibly help to fight cancer. One recent study on black cumin seed oil demonstrated that it was effective against pancreatic cancer, one of the deadliest and most difficult to treat cancers.
Black Cumin Seed Oil has been reported to treat:
- Cold symptoms
- Menstrual period
- Increase breast milk flow in nursing mothers
- Calm nervous system
- Treat pertussis
- Improve digestion
- Prevent and lower high blood pressure
- Boost energy
- Cure allergies
- Cure eczema
- Cure acne
- Cure psoriasis
- Treat diarrhea and constipation
Black cumin oil is especially used to treat asthma, bronchitis, rheumatism and cold symptoms.
Black cumin oil can help calm the nervous system, treat pertussis, improve digestion and even help prevent and lower high blood pressure.
According to The Eden Prescription, Black Cumin Oil (Nigella Sativa Extract) kills 93% of Breast Cancer Cells in Vitro. The Black Cumin Oil appeared to induce programmed cell death (apoptosis) via multiple pathways. It has also been shown in lab studies to be active against several other cancers including lung, kidney, liver, prostate, cervix and skin.
