Yeah, we know. There’s probably not one day that you don’t hear that there’s a “miracle cure”. But when we tell you that black seed oil is the real deal, we mean it!
It’s a seed/herb that goes by a lot of different names; Nigella Seeds, Black Cumin Seeds, Kalonji Oil. But no matter what you call it, they all have the same reputation. Just put them in your favorite search engine and you’ll be sure to see something along the lines of “It cures everything but death” (no, really!).
Black seed oil isn’t the cheapest (runs about $35 for a 16 oz. bottle). But out of all the things that you could invest in, it's a safe bet because the rewards are insurmountable. Trust us when we say that it’s a purchase you and your body won’t ever regret!
1. It fights off infections
You’ve probably never heard of Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) before. Few have. It’s a superbug found in hospitals that’s resistant to a lot of antibiotics. Resistant to everything but black seed oil. Various studies indicate that it has the ability to slow down the spreading of MRSA contained in certain environments. Black seed oil can also suppress the growth of oral and cervical cancer cells, slow down tumor growth, and help to prevent kidney damage that’s associated with diabetes.
2. It helps you to lose weight
Are you trying to lose weight? If so, black seed oil should become a part of your daily regimen. Black seed oil reportedly has over 250 vitamins and nutrients, including Omega-3 oil in it. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that help to keep your metabolism in good condition. And since it helps to lower your cholesterol levels, balance out your blood sugar and keep your appetite in check, it also helps you to shed pounds. The key is to take a teaspoon of black seed oil, honey and cinnamon each morning to give your metabolism a boost.
3. It gives you beautiful hair
Anything that has a lot of nutrients in it is something that’s going to be great for your hair. The antioxidant and antimicrobial properties in black seed oil heal the scalp and strengthen your hair follicles. Hair that’s healthy starting at the roots is hair that is long, strong and shiny.
4. It gives you flawless skin
Acne, acne scars, eczema, psoriasis, athlete’s foot, ringworm, fine lines and wrinkles---these are skin issues that aren’t too hard for black seed oil to treat. The anti-inflammatory and antioxidative effects in black seed oil help to repair damaged tissue, heal the patches associated with eczema and psoriasis and thanks to the Vitamins A, B and C and potassium and zinc, remove the bacteria that causes acne.
5. It's great during "that time of the month"
No one looks forward to their period, but it’s a natural part of life. If you don’t like yours because of the cramps that come along with it, try some black seed oil. If you take it every day, you should notice that your discomfort has decreased by your next menstrual cycle.
6. It keeps your mouth healthy
There’s a lot of bacteria in our mouths. If we don’t keep it clean, our gums and teeth can develop oral disease. That can lead to swollen gums and cavities. Brush and floss after every meal, chew gum to keep your mouth moist and also take some black seed oil. Rubbing the oil on your gums or swishing in your mouth after brushing can remove germs and keep your mouth in great shape.
