Black Seed (Nigella sativa) is an annual plant in the Buttercup family (Ranunculaceae). Used in many cultures as early as 3000 B.C. by both the Assyrians and ancient Egyptians. Since, it has been utilized both as a dietary supplement, a drug, and as food. A key component, thymoquinone, is valued around the world to this day.
Despite being known as Black Cumin Seed, it is not a relative of cumin in the carrot family, at all! The plant grows best in Turkey (the genetic source,) Northern Africa, and the Middle East. The plant grows best with full sun exposure and in hotter temperatures. Cleopatra is said to have used the oil as a beautification aid.
Famously, it is said to be good for everything but death itself. Today, Nigella sativa is celebrated around the world for its immune, digestive, cardiovascular, healthy blood sugar, and respiratory support among many other characteristics. Many use it topically to support a healthy response to pain.
Black Seed has a unique phytochemical profile that is rich in essential fatty acids, and terpenes including thymoquinone, p-cymene, nigellone, carvacrol, and alpha-pinene. Nature has imbued the plant with B vitamins, trace minerals, and vitamin E. There have been over 1000 clinical studies over the last 60 years supporting the many health benefits and uses of black seed.
