Black seed oil is nicknamed the “blessed seed”. Black seed oil may also be the oil you’ve never heard of or used. The benefits of black seed oil have been studied and well documented in scientific peer reviewed research articles.
Black seed oil is black cumin oil. No adverse effects have been found in those taking this oil internally. Black seed oil has been scientifically effective against some superbugs that are resistant to antibiotics. Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College researchers conducted a study to determine just how potent black seed oil against some of these superbugs. Black cumin oil was compared to comparison to several common antibiotics, such as amoxicillin, gatifloxacin and tetracycline. According to the study, “Out of 144 strains tested, most of which were resistant to a number of antibiotics, 97 were inhibited by the oil of black cumin.”
Some of the studies show that black seed oil has shown positive results in treating cancer, diabetes, and infections. It also has been shown to positively impact liver disease and diabetes. My personal experience with black seed oil is that I started the capsules twice a day, morning, and bedtime, about six months ago. I am a diabetic. Before beginning my black seed oil regime, my A1C (a measure of long term diabetes control), hovered around 6.5 to 7.0. Since I begain taking the capsules, my last three readings have been 5.0, 5.2, and 5.4, which is excellent control. I am not a doctor and have not done a scientific study, but with these results, I will continue to take the black seed oil. I have included a link to the capsule that I take twice a day. I also use black seed oil in some hair and beauty treatments. I will delve into that in the next post.
