What is Black Seed?

Black Seed is also known as Black Cumin, Kalonji, Black Caraway, Black Cumin, Habbatul Baraka (the Blessed Seed), and by its botanical name “Nigella Sativa.”

For centuries, the Black Seed herb and oil has been used by millions of people in Asia, Middle East, and Africa to support their health. The ancient Egyptians knew and used the black seed and described it as a panacea (cure for problems and diseases). Tutankhamen even had a bottle of the oil in his tomb! The Prophet of Islam Muhammad (p.b.u.h.) said that in the black seed is a cure for all diseases except old age and death. The black seed is also mentioned in the Bible in Isiah 28:25-27 as the ‘fitches’. The Romans also knew this seed and called it Greek Coriander and used it as a dietary supplement.

Since 1959, over 458 peer studies have been carried out at international universities and articles published in various journals showing remarkable results supporting its traditional uses. Black seed oil has been traditionally used for a vast array of ailments. What gives black seed oil its apparent ability to have a cure for all diseases is its ability to support a weak immune system, giving the defense system the ability to fight off illness. At the same time, it rebalances a hyperactive immune system, bringing relief for those who have respiratory problems such as asthma, hay fever and aiding many allergies.*
