Black

Guess what’s black, useful in cooking, incredibly small, and isn’t involved in the preparation of Mexican cuisine (even though the name would make it seem like it is). Stumped? Black cumin seed. Black cumin seed comes from a plant known as the Nigella sativa plant, which is native to southwest Asia (commonly called black cumin). This seed is an ancient ingredient for food used in cultures across the middle and far east for a millenia. It’s often used as raw seed or pressed into an oil called black cumin seed oil.

Is This One Of The Best Ways to Fight Inflammation?

Looking for one of the best ways to fight inflammation? If you are, then I want to give you some information about one of the most potent and all natural ways you can do that. Now, inflammation is a totally natural and normal response to help your body heal. However sometimes it may need a little help in "chilling-out". Odds are you get a fair amount of this nutrient in your diet every day, as it appears naturally in things like leafy greens, tomatoes, apples, and other richly colored vegetables.But if you're looking for an added boost to fight inflammation in overdrive, for instance, after an especially intense workout that leaves you walking around jacked up like a body builder, then you're...
