Black seed oil is extracted from the seeds of Nigella sativa, a plant native to southwest Asia.
The black seeds are slightly bitter and sometimes used as a flavouring or spice in Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine.
Black seed has been shown to have a protective effect on the heart, promote healthy cholesterol levels and help normalise blood pressure. Nigella sativa seeds are carminative, meaning they aid in digestion and may decrease gas, bloating, and stomach pain.
Black seed oil is sometimes used in remedies for intestinal parasites. Black seed oil is also used for skin problems like eczema and psoriasis. It helps soothe inflammation and improves the speed of healing.
Multiple studies have found that black seed oil has anti-asthmatic effects and depending on the cause of asthma, it was sometimes more effective than conventional treatments. The same properties make it beneficial for relieving allergies for many people.
