Black Cumin seeds (Nigella sativa) are a Middle Eastern seed that is also known as black seed, black caraway, black sesame, onion seed, and Roman coriander. Black Cumin seeds contain a distinctive oil that is purported to include over 100 different constituents, including the naturally-occurring active constituents’ thymoquinone (TQ), thymohydroquinone (THQ), and thymol. Research has demonstrated that the unique phytochemical constituents of Black Cumin Seed oil are not only effective individually, but also collectively.

Black Cumin seeds are one of the most revered ‘dual use’ seeds in history having been used for both culinary and medicinal purposes for thousands of years. In fact, Black Cumin seeds were used in the practices and mentioned in the writings of early physicians such as Hippocrates, Pliny, and Dioscorides. The seeds were also found in the tomb of King Tut, further proving just how prized and valuable these small, slightly rough-textured seeds with their oily interior have been over the ages.
Although used for centuries, it is only during the last five decades that modern science has conducted in-depth research on Black Cumin seeds and their oil in order to demonstrate the true potential of this ancient herb. In fact, over 600 scientific, peer-reviewed articles that have been published about Black Cumin seeds, including one published in the Egyptian Journal of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology where scientists tested thymol, TQ and THQ against 30 human pathogens and were surprised to discover that: 1) Each compound showed 100% inhibition for the thirty pathogens evaluated; 2) TQ was the best antifungal compound against all of the tested dermatophytes and yeasts, followed by THQ and thymol; 3) Thymol was the best antifungal against molds followed by TQ and THQ.
Furthermore, according to the scientific literature, additional studies have shown a beneficial link between Black Cumin seeds and respiratory health and cardiovascular function.*
