For over 4000 years, black seed oil has been used as a natural remedy for its healing properties and benefits. The ancient Eygptians used black seed oil as a trusted remedy for healing and protection. Even Pharoh Tutankhamun was a fan of black seed! Among his possessions of gold and diamonds, he chose to take black seed to the next life.

Nigella Sativa also holds deep roots in Islam, being the most frequented herb in the Qu’ran. Black seed oil’s healing properties are heavily documented, even being referred to as ‘seeds of blessing’ and ‘the miracle herb’.

Potential benefits of black seed oil

As a source of Omega 6 and Oleic acid, black seed oil contains natural polyunsaturated and saturated fatty acids as well as vitamins and minerals. This gives black seed its anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and hydrating properties. As well as aiding in lowering cholesterol levels, black seed oil is high in antioxidants. This helps to protect us against free radicals; harmful molecules that are linked to multiple illnesses such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease.

Due to the anti-inflammatory properties of black seed oil, it may help with brain health. The neuron-protecting properties, such as thymoquinone, make black seed oil a widely used natural remedy to treat nervous system diseases: such as memory impairment, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, epilepsy, and neurotoxicity. A study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology looked at ‘The effects of Nigella Sativa seed on memory, attention and cognition in healthy human volunteers’. The study found a significant difference in memory in those that took 500mg of black oil seed oil twice daily for nine weeks compared to those that didn’t. Concluding that Nigella Sativa enhances ‘memory, attention and cognition’. This makes black seed oil a brain boosting remedy.
