If you're interested in adding black cumin seed oil to your supplement routine, here are answers to the most common questions and a list of potential benefits of taking black cumin seed oil…
What is Black Cumin Seed Oil?
Black cumin seed oil has been used for centuries and may offer some important potential health benefits, which we’ll talk about next.
The secret of black cumin seed oil is the powerful nutrients and antioxidants such as omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 – which are all essential fatty acids that have been shown to support heart health and benefit those with high cholesterol.
What truly makes black cumin seed oil unique is an antioxidant called thymoquinone or TQ for short – which may support the immune system and reduced inflammation in the body.
TQ is one of the major reasons that black cumin seed oil supplements have become so popular – and may offer many potential benefits for health, vitality, and weight loss.
4 Potential Benefits of Black Cumin Seed Oil:
Black cumin seed oil has historically been used to treat a number of different ailments and new research shows that it may offer many health benefits. It’s most well-known for assisting with the following…
1) Reduced Inflammation
One of the many benefits of black cumin seed oil is its anti-inflammatory properties, which is believed to come from the compound TQ. By reducing inflammation, black cumin seed oil can potentially help reduce joint inflammation and lessen joint stiffness, improve asthma symptoms by relaxing the muscles in the airways, and help with seasonal allergies, by reducing congestion and nasal inflammation.
2) Supports Weight Loss
Research has shown that black cumin seed oil may support your weight loss efforts.
In one 8-week study, 90 women followed a low-calorie diet and took 1 gram of black cumin seed oil with every meal. When compared to those taking the placebo, women taking the black cumin seed oil lost more weight and inches around their waist. The group taking black cumin seed oil also saw a reduction in their bad cholesterol levels.
3) Supports Heart Health
It’s believed that the fatty acids in black cumin seed oil are beneficial in supporting heart health.
A study of 90 people with high cholesterol found that ingesting 2 teaspoons a day for 6 weeks showed a significant decrease in LDL or bad cholesterol. Another study of adults with type 2 diabetes also showed a significant drop in LDL.
A study of adults with high blood pressure found that a ½ teaspoon twice a day of black cumin seed oil for 8 weeks helped to reduce blood pressure.
These three studies are early research but show that black cumin seed oil can help to support your heart health.
4) Help Improve Brain Function
Studies have been done in test tubes and animals to look at the effects of black cumin seed oil on inflammation in the brain. The research shows promising results that black cumin seed oil can potentially help reduce brain inflammation, which may have positive effects to limit or prevent certain diseases.
As well, early research is showing that black cumin seed oil has positive effects on memory and brain function, especially learning.
