Black Seed Oil is an age-old remedy popularly favoured by herbalists, nutritionists, complimentary therapists and naturopaths.
The subject of over 1,000 peer-reviewed scientific articles, Black Seed Oil is renowned for its amazing benefits. Far from being a modern health ‘fad’, it was noted in multiple scriptures of Ancient Egypt and Rome.
Traditionally used externally to promote smooth skin, as well as internally for immune-related complaints, Black Seed Oil (also known as Black Cumin Oil or Black Caraway Oil) is best described as a multi-purpose natural oil.
The Benefits of Black Seed Oil
The benefits of black seed oil can largely be attributed to the natural chemicals it contains: thymoquinone (TQ), thymohydroquinone (THQ) and thymol.
• Thymoquinone is the most prominent constituent of black seeds and is well known for its hepatoprotective, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties. It has been investigated by researchers since the 1960s.
• Thymohydroquinone is a potent natural acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitor.
• Thymol is the active ingredient which lends thyme essential oil its medicinal properties.
The highly nutritious oil contains approximately 21% protein, 38% carbs and 35% plant fats and oil.
Available in Two Strengths
Our aromatic Black Seed Oil is available in two different strengths: Standard Strength and High Strength. The difference lies in the volatile oil content – while Standard contains 2% volatile oil, High Strength contains 4.3%.
Much of the pharmacological value of Black Seed Oil is credited to the compound-rich volatile oil component. The percentage of volatile oil depends on where the seed is grown and also the hybrid of seed used.
Both our versions contain 100% pure virgin quality cold-pressed black seed oil and absolutely no additives.
How to Use Black Seed Oil
Black Seed Oil can be taken right off the spoon, incorporated in a salad dressing or dip, added to a smoothie or utilised as a head or chest rub.
Be aware that the Standard Strength oil has a less pungent taste than the High Strength version.
