Black seed oil is extracted from the seeds of Nigella Sativa, a plant native to southwest Asia (commonly called black cumin). Also known as black cumin seed oil or kalonji oil, nigella sativa oil is an amber-hued oil used in cooking and is proven to offer a range of health benefits. One of the key components of black seed oil is thymoquinone, a compound unique to its kind, with high antioxidant properties, hepatoprotective, anti-inflammatory, cytotoxic and anti-cancer. Health enthusiasts have dubbed it as “a cure for everything except death”.

Black seed oil may aid in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, according to a small study published in Immunological Investigations in 2016. For the study, 43 women with mild-to-moderate rheumatoid arthritis took black seed oil capsules or a placebo every day for one month.
The study results showed that treatment with black seed oil led to a reduction in arthritis symptoms (as assessed by the DAS-28 rating scale), blood levels of inflammatory markers, and the number of swollen joints.
Black seed oil shows promise in the treatment of allergies. In a 2011 study published in the American Journal of Otolaryngology, for instance, black seed oil was found to reduce the presence of nasal congestion and itching, runny nose, and sneezing after two weeks.
Black seed oil may be of some benefit to people with diabetes, according to a review published in Complementary Therapies in Medicine in 2015. Researchers analyzed previously published studies on the use of Nigella sativa for diabetes and concluded that it could improve blood sugar and cholesterol levels in diabetes models but noted that clinical trials are necessary to clarify the effects.
