From Dr. Wiggy
: My focus on thyroid health is what originally led me to investigate black cumin seed. In a study by the journal, BioMedical Central Complementary Alternative Medicine
researchers performed a randomized controlled trial where they tested the effect of black cumin seed versus a placebo. ... At the end of the trial, the subjects who took the black cumin seed saw their body weight and body mass index (BMI) improved.
Along with that, their serum concentrations of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and anti-thyroid peroxidase (anti-TPO) antibodies also improved while the serum T3 concentrations increased. Plus, black cumin seed caused serum VEGF concentrations to rebound closer to normal... This led the researchers to conclude black cumin seed was an effective way to keep the thyroid healthy.
What is black cumin seed oil, anyway?
Black seed oil (aka black cumin seed oil, kalonji oil, or nigella sativa oil) is an amber-hued oil extracted from tiny black seeds of the flowering Nigella sativa plant that originated in Southwest Asia and has been used throughout the Middle East, Africa, and Eastern Europe.
"People have used black cumin seeds and their oil to treat a wide range of conditions including digestive problems and high blood pressure for thousands of years," says Vincent Pedre, M.D., mbg Collective member and board-certified internist and integrative medicine specialist in New York City. Black cumin seeds were even found in King Tut's tomb, and apparently they got a mention in the Old Testament as being able to cure anything but death. [Black Seed is described in the Bible in the Book of Isaiah in the Old Testament.: “For the Black Cumin is beaten out with a stick and the Cumin with a Rod.” (Isaiah 28: 25, 27 NKJV)
BLACK CUMIN SEED OIL BOOSTS IMMUNOMODULATION
Black cumin seed oil joins a small handful of nutraceuticals now known to modulate the immune system in both directions. In addition to suppressing dangerous chronic inflammation, black cumin seed oil has been shown to boost appropriate immune function...
In other words, black cumin seed oil offers true immune system balancing, promoting healthy immune function when it's needed, while suppressing excessive immune activity (inflammation), when it's deleterious.
Black cumin seed oil achieves this immunological balancing act by means of several distinct but interrelated mechanisms.
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...
I’m going to let you in on a secret. I’m about to show you a black, “mystery seed” that barely 1 in 100,000 Americans know about. What’s so amazing about this seed is even though Americans don’t know much about it. People all over the world incorporate these seeds in their diet to help boost their health. The seed I’m referring to is black cumin seed. Here’s what it looks like: Black cumin seed has little relation to the spice found in Mexican food.
