Did you know that the oil from the seeds of a southwest Asian plant has been shown to prevent and cure dozens of diseases – including cancer and diabetes?
This extraordinary seed oil comes from the Nigella Sativa plant, and its seeds are most often called black cumin—but some call them black caraway, black sesame, onion seed, or Roman coriander. The oil extracted from these seeds is simply called black seed oil. This medicinal spice is regarded by many health practitioners as a veritable panacea because it helps cure everything from allergies to diabetes, viral infections—and yes, even cancer.
Over 630 scientific peer-reviewed articles have been published about black seed oil’s health benefits, and it appears that the oil helps overcome most diseases—with no adverse side effects. Powerful as black seed oil may be, it’s a curious fact that most people—especially those who don’t live in Asia—have never heard of it!
Cancer Breakthrough – 52% Decrease in Tumor Cells!
Perhaps the most promising research on black seed oil has centered upon the oil’s potential to prevent and cure cancer. Its cancer-fighting properties owe themselves to the presence of its active ingredient, thymoquinone (TQ), which researchers have been investigating for over five decades. TQ has been shown to have anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties—and has also been shown to be helpful in the treatment of asthma, diabetes and encephalomyelitis.
Since black seed oil is rich not only in TQ but also thymohydroquinone (THQ), another anti-tumor ingredient, it has been shown to fight cancer through several mechanisms: Anti-proliferation, apoptosis induction, anti-metastasis, dell cycle arrest, anti-angiogenesis, and reactive oxygen species generation. A study conducted by Croatian researchers investigated the antitumor activity of TQ and THQ in mice, and discovered that the two phytochemicals working together resulted in a 52% decrease in tumor cells!
67% of “Superbugs” Stopped Dead in Their Tracks!
According to a study conducted by Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College researchers who investigated the potency of black seed oil against so-called “superbugs” as compared to antibiotics such as Amoxicillin, Gatifloxacin and Tetracycline, 67% of the superbugs were inhibited by black seed oil. More specifically, out of 144 strains of bacteria and viruses tested, most of which were resistant to antibiotics or deemed as untreatable—such as HIV, tuberculosis, influenza, candida, and malaria—97 of them were stopped dead in their tracks by black seed oil.
A study conducted by scientists in Pakistan investigated several strains of Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) and proved that black seed oil can help slow down or stop MRSA from spreading out of control.
The discovery of black seed oil’s power over bacteria and viruses is of great significance because superbugs pose a serious health risk especially to the 5- to 10% of hospital patients that develop infections from such superbugs. Black seed oil could potentially prevent more than 90,000 patients from dying of these superbugs each year.
Prevention and Treatment of Diabetes, Liver Disease, Tuberculosis and Countless Ailments
Black seed oil is one of the few substances on earth that has been shown to prevent both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. It does this by causing gradual partial regeneration of pancreatic beta-cells, increasing the lowered serum insulin concentrations and decreasing the elevated serum glucose, according to a study conducted by researchers from the Indian Council of Medical Research published by the Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism. The study also found that black seed improves glucose tolerance as efficiently as metformin (one of the most commonly prescribed type 2 diabetes drugs), but unlike metformin, it has not shown significant adverse effects and has very low toxicity.
Black seed oil also helps prevent liver damage and disease and facilitates the healing of the liver—especially in people who suffer from poor liver function due to medication side effects and alcohol consumption.
Black seed oil’s bioactive compound thymoquinone (TQ) shows promise in treating epilepsy, allergies, and boosting the immune system. Its active ingredient thymol is a tuberculocide and virucide that kills TB and various viruses.
Black seed has been used for medicinal purposes for over 3000 years to treat ailments such as headache, toothache, nasal congestion, intestinal worms, conjunctivitis, abscesses, and parasites. Today, it is used to treat a wide array of health problems including: digestive tract conditions, such as gas, colic, diarrhea, dysentery, constipation, and hemorrhoids; respiratory conditions such as asthma, allergies, cough, bronchitis, emphysema, flu, swine flu, and congestion; and lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
Still others have used black seed topically for joint pain (rheumatism) and certain skin conditions such as eczema; and it helps protect the skin from damage. Indeed, black seed oil has been praised for its potential to treat an impressive range of diseases including Alzheimer’s disease, autism, glaucoma, dementia, neurodegenerative conditions, schizophrenia, and Parkinson’s disease, thereby cementing its reputation as being one of the most effective natural, plant-based remedies on the planet.
