Important update…..

Update – scientific studies suggest black cumin seed is good against Covid 19

This article titled  Prophetic Medicine-Nigella Sativa (Black cumin seeds) – Potential herb for COVID-19? explores some of that.

If you don’t want to read the whole article, read the conclusion here in the red text.

“4. Conclusion

Various randomized controlled trials, pilot studies, case reports, and in vitro and in vivo studies confirmed that N. sativa has antiviral, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, bronchodilatory, antihistaminic, antitussive activities related to the causative organism and signs and symptoms of COVID-19.

In addition, N. sativa has also shown anti-hypertensive, anti-obesity, anti-diabetic, anti-hyperlipidemic, anti-ulcer, and antineoplastic activities which would help the COVID-19 patients with comorbid conditions. Moreover, the active constituents of N. Sativa such as nigellidine and α-hederin have been identified as a potential inhibitor of SARS CoV-2. N. sativa could be used as an adjuvant therapy along with repurposed conventional drugs to manage the patients with COVID-19.”

The research and interest in black cumin seed oil have increased hugely since covid 19 made its unwelcome appearance in December 2019 in numbers.

I’m reading material that’s been published in June and July 2020.

I’ll post these articles as information comes to hand.

Do you want an all-purpose immune system booster?  Do you have a serious health issue? Then consider black cumin seed oil, strong – a heavy hitter in the therapeutic oil world.

Black cumin seed oil strong

This black cumin seed oil has a minimum of 4.0% thymoquinone content.

Thymoquinone is the element of the oil that gives it its therapeutic grunt.  The higher the thymoquinone content, the more potential therapeutic benefit.

But be warned, this strong black cumin seed oil is pungent and challenging to consume straight off the spoon without having a teaspoon of honey as a chaser.

Honey is said to compound the therapeutic effect of the black cumin seed oil.  I’ve asked around widely but not found any satisfactory explanation as to how this works.  So you’ll just have to take my word for it.

People with significant health conditions should consider this strong black cumin seed oil.

Usual cautions apply!  This is not intended to diagnose, treat, or cure any medical or health conditions that you may have.  Or which you should seek advice for from a registered medical practitioner.

People wanting a general boost to their immune systems should take this.

People who have or are recovering from significant health problems should read the scientific references that have investigated the use of black cumin seed oil.

These will give you the confidence to take this product that has been used in a wide range of situations for a huge range of health conditions.

Background information on black cumin seed oil

Black cumin seed oil, Nigella Sativa  (also called kalonji by Indian peoples and haba al-barakah by Arabic speakers) is one of the great healing wonders of the world.  It ranks alongside coconut oil in terms of the sheer number of health conditions for which it can be used.  Punching this search into PubMed ( ) reveals some 585 scientific references for its use.

This is a quality product that I will buy again. CBSO has a pungent taste that needs to be disguised (no pain, no gain). I add it to my morning smoothie. That consists of half a bunch of parsley, half a lemon (skin on) and a piece of fresh ginger plus some other fresh herbs if available and a cup of water. I blend the herbs and add the CBSO together with an equal amount of flaxseed oil at the end. This is simple high-powered nutrition that sets me up for the day. Taste is not a problem.

I have used Zenian's black cumin seed oil for several years. It has helped considerably with improving the look and health of my sun damaged skin on my head. Lately, because the research indicates it has some amazing and multiple health properties, I have also been taking a teaspoon of the oil each morning for my digestion. While it has a strong and spicy taste its seems to have also helped settle my digestion.
