Nigella sativa, Latin for “black cumin” or “black seed,” is an annual herb with a lifecycle of a year. Called Habbatul barakah (the seed of blessing in Arabic), Nigella has a mighty reputation in various systems of traditional medicine and in different Asian cuisines.
The seeds and seed oil of this “miracle herb” even get a mention in the Quran and the Bible.
In Ayurveda, too, the seeds of Nigella sativa are used as an astringent, stimulant, diuretic, emmenagogue, and antiparasitic, and to cure jaundice, dyspepsia, intermittent fever, piles, and skin diseases.
Can Black seed oil Cure Arthritis?
The therapeutic properties of Nigella Saiva are largely due to the content of thymoquinone, a major bioactive component. Thymoquinone has been shown to have antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and liver-protecting properties.
Rheumatoid arthritis is one of the most disabling illnesses today, affecting millions of people worldwide. As scientists and rheumatologists try to broaden their knowledge of this complex autoimmune disease, there are natural remedies for it. Black cumin oil is one of them.
There is evidence that T-lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell produced by the thymus gland, play a major role in rheumatoid arthritis. Black cumin oil has the potential to improve the condition by modulating the action of these T-lymphocytes
Existing anti-inflammatory drugs usually include classes of drugs that produce severe, adverse effects such as gastric ulcer, depression, water retention in the body. These negative effects are visible especially with prolonged use. Medicinal plants such as black cumin can be a source of biological compounds that are significantly safer and do not cause such side effects.
The volatile oil of black cumin seeds has a pain-relieving effect and pronounced anti-inflammatory activity.
