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”.
Uses for Black Seed Oil
Black seed oil is touted as a remedy for conditions such as allergies, asthma, diabetes, headaches, high blood pressure, digestive disorders, and rheumatoid arthritis.
Commonly, black seed oil is taken to boost the immune system, reduce inflammation, and fight infections. The oral oil is used topically on skin and hair to treat acne, dry damaged hair, psoriasis, hair thinning, and dry skin.
The slightly bitter seeds are used as a flavoring or spice in Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine and are sometimes sprinkled on flatbread, naan bread, or bagels.
The taste of the oil, however, can be a bit too strong for some people. We have taken the organic black seed oil to be filled in soft gels for easy and convenient consumption.
GUIDELINES TO CONSUME
- Once – twice a day, 2 soft gels after a meal(s)
- Take 2 soft gels before meals if meant to treat indigestion and gut problems
Warning: Pregnant women (or women trying to conceive) and breastfeeding women are not advised to take black seed oil. Talk to your doctor if you’re considering the consumption of black seed oil. You should not stop any of your medications without speaking with your doctor, or delay or avoid conventional treatment.
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.
Preliminary research suggests that black seed oil may offer benefits to people with asthma. For example, a study published in Phytotherapy Research in 2017 found that people with asthma who took black seed oil capsules had a significant improvement in asthma control compared with those who took a placebo.
Fish oil is the fat or oil that’s extracted from fish tissue. It usually comes from oily fish, such as herring, tuna, anchovies, and mackerel. Yet it’s sometimes produced from the livers of other fishes, as is the case with cod liver oil.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends eating 1–2 portions of fish per week. This is because the omega-3 fatty acids in fish provide many health benefits, including protection against a number of diseases. What’s more, fish oil usually contains vitamins A and D. Omega 3s are polyunsaturated fatty acids. They’re what’s known as essential fats. Your body can’t produce them; your supply of omega-3s must come from dietary and supplement sources.
It’s important to note that the types of omega-3s found in fish oil have greater health benefits than the omega-3s found in some plant sources. The main omega-3s in fish oil are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), while the omega-3 in plant sources is mainly alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Although ALA is an essential fatty acid, EPA and DHA have many more health benefits.
It’s also important to get enough omega-3s because the Asian diet has replaced a lot of omega-3s with other fats like omega-6s. This distorted ratio of fatty acids may contribute to numerous diseases caused by inflammation.
Omega 3s play an important role in cell function, so their benefits to health are widespread. One of the most powerful benefits of omega 3s to the body is their ability to reduce inflammation, which is linked to a range of diseases, from cardiovascular disease to cancer. Science shows the protections and benefits of omega 3s include:
- Heart health. Omega 3s reduce blood pressure and heart rate, guard against arrhythmias, lower triglycerides, reduce inflammation, raise levels of the “good” cholesterol HDL, and keep arteries free from developing plaque leading to arteriosclerosis.
- Cancer protection. Studies have shown a lower risk for some cancers—including colon, breast, and prostate—in people who consume greater amounts of omega 3s.
- Autoimmune conditions. Higher consumption of omega-3s may reduce the risks of developing autoimmune diseases later in life. These fatty acids have been shown effective in treating autoimmune conditions including rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, lupus, and others.
- Healthy, youthful skin. The omega-3 fatty acids help skin stay hydrated, prevent acne, and guard against premature aging. They also may be an effective treatment for acne, psoriasis, and other skin conditions.
- Stronger bones and less painful joints. Studies show omega 3s can boost calcium levels in bones and may lower risks for osteoporosis. Omega 3s can also reduce joint pain in people with arthritis.
- Cognitive protection. Research shows consuming more omega-3s is linked to reduced risks for cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease.
- ADHD. Omega 3s can reduce the symptoms of ADHD, including hyperactivity, aggressiveness, impulsivity, and difficulty maintaining attention and completing tasks.
- Sleep Quality. Lack of sleep may lead to serious health conditions. Having a good sleeping routine and quality can be based on a healthy diet. A diet rich in Omega-3 can increase levels of Melatonin – a hormone-like substance that puts your body at resting mode – and DHA. DHA reduces the risks and symptoms of sleep apnea.
