Oh dang, have I got the mother of all mothers here. As usual, I am learning about herbs and all the beautiful things they do and I came across Black Seed Oil. It was like BAM, where have you been my whole life. Black Seed Oil is something that should be apart of your medicinal herb cabinet for sure. This right here folks, is called the mother load.

This is the brand we use and love it so far. It’s a great company. When buying any supplement do a little research to make sure that company is doing good things on this earth.

Okay, let’s talk a little about Black Seed Oil and why it’s considered the mother load.

What is Black Seed Oil:

Black Seed Oil is derived from the Nigella Sativa plant, specifically the seeds from the flower. The seeds are compressed and the oil is extracted. There are many names that Black Seed Oil goes by:

Black Cumin

Black Onion Seed

Nigella Sativa

Black Caraway

Black Sesame

Kalonji Oil

A seed by many name is a seed………..Hmmm I don’t know, it a damn good little seed though. Anyway, on to the phenomenal health benefits. Black Seed Oil is a powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti fungal and antiviral. It also contains two highly potent phytochemical compounds, Thymoquinone and Thymohydroquinone. These two compounds have been proven to be directly related to providing relief to and possibly curing many diseases. The third compound, which helps make this oil well rounded is Thymol.

A little bit about Thymoquinone, Thymol and Thymohydroquinone because I know you’re like YES, I’VE GOT TO KNOW WHAT THESE THREE CHEMICALS DO!

I gotcha, I gotcha.

Thymoquinone: Is a compound specifically derived from the Nigella Sativa plant. This phytochemical compound is a high antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and actually has anti-cancerous properties. In many studies, it has been shown to reverse cancerous cells. Thymoquinone has potent regenerative properties, those in which closely resemble chemotherapy treatment. Thymoquinone is high in antioxidants that turns free radicals in the body into harmless molecules. These properties help fight infections within the body, ease pain and reduce inflammation.

Thymohydroquinone: Is a potent acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitor. AChE is an enzyme that actually promotes the breakdown of neurotransmitters in the brain. Neurotransmitters are compounds within the brain that are signal molecules. What these molecules do, is they communicate between nerve cells and muscle cells. This natural chemical is what pharmaceutical companies try to mimic when producing medications for mental disease such as, Alzheimers, Autism, Schizophrenia and many other neurological disorders.

Thymol: Is a natural chemical found in the oil of Thyme. It is a strong antiseptic, anti fungal, and antibacterial. All these compounds are very useful in fighting off infections and other diseases in the body.

All three of these chemical compounds are what make this oil the mother load. So far it is the only oil that contains these properties together. Besides Oregano oil, it is the second highest regarded oil when it comes to improving health.

Medicinal Benefits: It is recommended to consume Black Seed Oil  30 days consecutively to see results. 

Reduced high blood pressure: Taking appropriate dosage daily can help reduce high blood pressure.

Kills cancerous sells: The three chemical compounds mention above contribute to this health benefit.

Fights fungal infections: The anti fungal and antibacterial properties in this oil can help kill of fungal infections within the body. It can be also used topically to help with fungal infections of the skin such as staph infections and ring worm.

Liver and Kidney health: The liver and kidney are constantly flushing out toxins within the body and can become overworked. The antioxidants within Black Seed Oil can help flush those toxins out quicker and allow for your liver and kidney to be repaired by regenerating their cells.

Reduces allergies: Black Seed Oil is an anti-inflammatory, this helps reduce inflammation with in the nasal cavity. Helping reduce allergy symptoms.

Helps acnes: Acne is caused by inflammation, by applying Black Seed Oil to the skin, it can help reduce inflammation and ultimately reducing acne.

Boosts fertility: Some have seen great results in using Black Seed Oil to help reduce the chances if infertility. Black Seed Oil also can increase ones sex drive by reducing inflammation and increasing blood flow and oxygen to the male and females sexual organs.

Fights colds and flus: The anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral properties within the oil help boost immune system to help fight off cold and flus off faster. Antioxidants in the oil also help to fight off infection, making recovery a lot faster.

Coughs and asthma: Inflammation is the biggest cause of coughs. Since Black Seed Oil is a strong anti-inflammatory it can help reduce inflammation in the chest and lungs, relieving coughs and

Relieves upset stomach: Black Seed Oil helps stimulate the body digestion and helps reduce gas within the intestinal track, helping relieve nausea and upset stomachs.

Relives pain and swelling: When you feel pain or swelling that usually means there is some sort of inflammation within the body. Because Black Seed Oil is such a high anti-inflammatory it can help relive pain and swelling almost immediately by rubbing oil directly on area.

These are to name a few health benefits. Seriously.

How to take Black Seed Oil:

You can ingest Black Seed Oil from straight oil, 1tsp twice a day. I am not going to lie to you, it has an intense taste. But a swig of water right after and you are good-to-go!

You can take it in pill form. We personally have not tried pill form. We take the oil.

You can also rub it on the skin on problem areas like your back, sore muscles or on swelling. This has worked great on back pain.

Now, aren’t you thinking, “where the hell has this been my whole life?”

I told you!

Mother Load!
