In studies on rats and humans, black cumin seed oil has been found to do the following:
• Inhibit tumor growth by up to 50%
• Increase the growth of healthy bone marrow cells by 250%
• Demonstrate strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties
• Help to protect the body against damage from chemotherapy and radiation
The high content of phytosterols found in Black Cumin Oil are also necessary for the human body’s natural production of hormones, provitamin D and bile acid, aiding in the prevention of endocrine disorders, immune deficiency and the #1 killer: cardiovascular disease.
Reasons to Consume Black Cumin Daily
1) IT IS POTENT ENOUGH TO JUMPSTART THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
Its ability to improve the immune system. Black cumin does this by helping to stimulate the production of bone marrow and cells of the immune system. It increases the production of interferon (a protein released by cells, usually in response to the entry of a virus), protects normal cells from the damaging effects of harmful invaders, helps destroy tumour cells and increases the number of antibody-producing B cells within us.
2) FOLLOW YOUR HEART—YOU NEED IT
Black cumin benefits the heart and the cardiovascular system in a variety of ways – rich unsaturated omega fatty acids and phytosterols help fortify and increase the elasticity of blood vessel walls, decrease capillary fragility and permeability, prevent thrombus formation, and decrease arterial pressure. It also assists in the decrease of blood cholesterol—preventing the formation of dangerous atherosclerotic plaque, as well as preventing the development of inflammatory elements in the overall cardiovascular system.
3) PROTECTION AGAINST ANTIBIOTIC-RESISTANT “SUPER BUGS” ALREADY THREATENING OUR FUTURE
Research into the antibacterial properties of Black Cumin, as compared to strong antibiotic drug, was carried out by the University of Dhaka, in Bangladesh. Black cumin oil demonstrated itself to be a MORE EFFICIENT remedy against certain types of bacteria including those which most strongly resist antibiotic drugs.
The Best Way To Consume Black Cumin:
The OIL is the most effective form for consuming black cumin, because the oil is more concentrated than whole seeds unpressed and is more readily assimilated. Also, because of its potent, absorbable concentration, only 1 teaspoon is needed per dose.
Most health experts and natural physicians recommend taking 1 teaspoon of the oil two times per day for therapeutic effects, on an empty stomach/before meals and bedtime. Once per day, for a healthy maintenance dose or as a preventative measure.
Black cumin can have sedative effects for some though, and because the oils have bile-expelling characteristics, it is best taken in the evening—unless you’re utilizing it 2 times per day for therapeutic benefits. You can take the oil on its own or mixed into water or juice (*great with raw honey), or it can be added to warm herbal tea.
