For thousands of years, Black cumin seed has been used for a variety of medical conditions including high-blood pressure, infections, indigestion, liver-disease and more. Black seed oil was found in the Tombs of Egyptian Pharaohs who were buried with their most previous belongings. We can find black seed mentioned in the Old Testament. It also was highly promoted in early Islamic culture, where it was seen as a cure-all herb. From these sources we can see that, for thousands of years, black cumin seed was recognised as a remarkable healing substance. In fact, black cumin seed was so prized in ancient cultures that it was described as “the blessed seed” and was said to “cure everything but death”.
These claims may sound quite wild, especially in today’s rational world where we no longer have to take the word of Pharos or religious authorities. However, in the case of black cumin seed, modern science is starting to confirm what the ancients knew about this miraculous substance. Research has discovered a staggering number of potential benefits in many different areas of health.
