Black Seed Oil


Black seed oil is extracted from the seeds of Nigella sativa, a plant native to southwest Asia. It is used by some for the treatment of asthma, diabetes, hypertension, weight loss, and other conditions. One of its key components is thymoquinone, a compound with antioxidant properties. There is scientific evidence to support some, but not all uses for black seed oil.

Black seed oil has a long history of use dating back over 2000 years. In fact, according to some sources, it was discovered in the tomb of King Tut. The oil is sold by supplement retailers for topical use and in capsule form for oral consumption. Nigella sativa seeds are sometimes used in Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine, and have a slightly bitter taste.
