Benefits of black seed and some diseases it cures in our daily lives

What exactly is Black Seed?

Black seed is a type of plant.

For over 2000 years, people have used the seed to make medicine. 

Black seed has traditionally been used to treat headaches, toothaches, nasal congestion, and intestinal worms. Black seed is now used to treat digestive issues such as gas, colic, diarrhea, dysentery, constipation, and hemorrhoids. 

The presence of a patent does not imply that black seed has been demonstrated to be effective for this purpose. Black seed is used by women for birth control, to start menstruation, and to increase milk flow. Black seed is sometimes combined with cysteine, vitamin E, and saffron to alleviate the side effects of cisplatin, a chemotherapy drug. For joint pain (rheumatism), headaches, and certain skin conditions, some people apply black seed directly to the skin.

Black seed is used as a flavoring or spice in foods.

According to research, taking black seed extract orally improves coughing, wheezing, and lung function in people with asthma. 

Black seed, on the other hand, may not be as effective as the drugs theophylline or salbutamol.

According to preliminary research, taking a specific product containing black seed oil, vitamin E, beta-carotene, and biotin (Immerfit by Phyt-Immun) by mouth daily may improve allergy symptoms in people with hay fever.

Early research suggests that taking a specific product containing black seed oil, vitamin E, beta-carotene, and biotin by mouth daily (Immerfit by Phyt-Immun) may improve symptoms in people with itchy and inflamed skin. 

However, in similar patients, applying a 15 percent black seed oil ointment to the skin for four weeks does not appear to improve itching or disease severity.

According to preliminary research, taking black seed extract by mouth every eight hours for four weeks may reduce the number of seizures in children with epilepsy.

The evidence for the effectiveness of black seed in the treatment of high cholesterol is conflicting. 

Some preliminary research suggests that taking 1 gram of whole crushed black seed twice daily before meals for 4 weeks reduces cholesterol, “bad” LDL cholesterol, and blood fats called triglycerides in people with high cholesterol. 

Other research, however, indicates that taking 1 gram of powdered black seed twice daily for 6 weeks does not improve cholesterol.

Early research suggests that taking black seed extract twice daily for 8 weeks may help some people's blood pressure.

The metabolic syndrome Early research suggests that taking a specific black seed oil product twice daily for 6 weeks may lower total cholesterol, “bad” LDL cholesterol, and blood sugar levels in people with metabolic syndrome.

Early research indicates that taking chanca piedra and black seed by mouth for 7 days relieves pain in people with sore throats and swollen tonsils.

More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of black seed for these uses. 

There is some scientific evidence to suggest that black seed might help boost the immune system, fight cancer, prevent pregnancy, and lessen allergic reactions by acting as an antihistamine, but there isn't enough information in humans yet.

When taken by mouth in small amounts, such as as a flavoring for foods, black seed is LIKELY SAFE for most people. 

When used in medical amounts, black seed oil and black seed extract are POSSIBLY SAFE. 

When applied to the skin, black seed can cause allergic rashes.

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: In food amounts, black seed appears to be safe during pregnancy. 

Black seed has the ability to slow or stop the contraction of the uterus.

There isn't much information available about the safety of using black seed while breast-feeding. 

Children: When taken in recommended amounts and over a short period of time, black seed oil is POSSIBLY SAFE for children.

Bleeding disorders: Black seed has been linked to slowed blood clotting and an increased risk of bleeding. 

Diabetes: Black seed may help some people lower their blood sugar levels. 

If you have diabetes and use black seed, keep an eye out for signs of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) and carefully monitor your blood sugar levels.

Low blood pressure: Black seed has the potential to lower blood pressure. 

In theory, taking black seed could cause blood pressure to drop too low in people who already have low blood pressure.

Surgery: In some people, black seed may slow blood clotting, lower blood sugar, and increase sleepiness. 

Black seed may, in theory, increase the risk of bleeding and interfere with blood sugar control and anesthesia during and after surgical procedures.
