Functions Nigella sativa seed - Black cumin seed - Black seed - Medicinal Herb

  1. Nigella sativa, a flowering plant more commonly called fennel flower or Roman coriander, is an Asian spice often used as a medicinal plant. In ancient times, it was used in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia to improve kidney and liver function, promote intestinal health, and enhance immune system function. The Prophet Muhammad, founder of Islamic religion, reportedly said it could heal every disease except for death.
  2. According to several studies, nigella sativa contains antioxidant activity, which can prevent the free radical damage that can injure cells. Increased cell damage can lead to tumors and cancer, according to experts. Some studies say it may also increase the risk for heart disease.
  3. According to one animal study, nigella sativa contains a constituent called thymoquinone, which has been shown to decrease the risk for stomach tumors in mice. It is not clear how this constituent reacts in humans. It may also prevent cancerous pancreatic cells from proliferating and inducing cell death, called apoptosis. This may help prevent or reduce the severity of pancreatic cancer.
  4. Nigella sativa also contains a constituent called beta-sitosterol, which may inhibit tumor growth in the stomach, liver, and eyes. It has also been clinically shown to inhibit the absorption of cholesterol in the intestinal tract, decreasing bad LDL cholesterol levels. In Europe, beta-sitosterol is used to reduce urinary symptoms caused by a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate, called benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH).
