Black Seed Benefits
Black seed has a long history of use in Islamic medicine, which uses the black seed as a treatment for numerous disorders, running the gamut from cancer to dizziness, according to the “Islamic Bulletin.” Nigella sativa, a flowering plant found throughout Asia, India, and Europe produces seeds from which oil is extracted. The oil is mixed with honey to make black seed honey. Black seed oil contains thymoquinone, an antioxidant. Antioxidants can reduce cell damage by destroying free radicals, molecules that destroy cellular DNA.
