Black seed oil has been promoted for its purported health advantages for generations despite being used for thousands of years to treat a variety of maladies. According to reports, it was even found in King Tut's tomb. But are its health advantages real?  Nigella sativa, a tiny plant with light purple, blue, or white flowers that thrives in Western Asia, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe, is the source of black seed oil.

Black caraway, black cumin, kalonji, and black onion seeds are some alternate names for black seed oil, the author continues. Although historically employed in food preparation and cooking, these tiny black seeds are now more frequently encountered in supplement form, including capsules and soft gels.

Here are some benefits of seed oil-


For thousands of years, black seed oil has been used in food, medicine, and even cosmetics. Similar to how you would take an aspirin or ibuprofen today, many individuals turn to it in the hopes that it will target and reduce inflammation. Additionally, it contains compounds that can help shield cells from harm.

Anti cancer

Nigella sativa, a flowering shrub, produces the seeds that are used to make black seed oil. Thymoquinone, a substance found in abundance in the plant, may have anti-cancer properties. It reduced tumour size and inhibited tumour growth in mice, shielding surrounding tissue from radiation damage. To determine whether it might benefit humans, we need further evidence.

The seeds from N. sativa are also known as kalonji, black seeds, black cumin, and black caraway. You can season bread, pickles, and curries with them or their oil, much to like you would with cumin or oregano.

Heart health

Along with the seed and oil, black seed extract has the potential to aid in lowering important risk factors for cardiovascular disease. It has been demonstrated to potentially lower high cholesterol, and it may aid in lowering high blood pressure in people with moderate hypertension.
