Black Seed - Facts and Health Benefits

For centuries, the Black Seed (Nigella Sativa) herb and oil have been used by millions of people in Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe and Africa to compliment their health. Highly aromatic and spicy, this tiny seed and its fixed oil is used as a food preservative and for a variety of supportive health benefits—help restore the natural balance of the body's vital organs and strengthen its natural defenses. Here are just a few benefits of using black seed:

  • Bolster Vitality
  • Aid Digestion,
  • Respiratory, Kidney, Liver, Inflammatory and Circulatory Support
  • Heal MRSA
  • Reduce High Blood Pressure
  • Aid Type 2 Diabetes

Black Seed is grown in various countries and therefore known by many names such as Black Cumin (Egypt), Black Caraway (Turkey), Kalonji (India/Pakistan), Habbatul Baraka or the Blessed Seed (Middle East), among others. Ever since its introduction to the United States in the late 1980's, it has been commonly referred to as 'Black Seed' or 'Black Cumin' and often used as a spice in traditional Indian, Pakistani, Middle Eastern and Persian cuisines.

Black Seed's medicinal use has a very rich traditional history that goes beyond ancient Eygptian and Biblical times.A  Black Seed was found in Tutankhamen's tomb and a biblical reference to it is noted in the Old Testament (Isaiah 28: 25, 27). Another important ancient reference to Black Seed's use is from Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam (PBUH)(Sahih Bukhari 71:592). Deeper research suggest that it was used as early as the 5th century B.C. by Hippocrates and by Pliny the Elder and Dioscorides.

The first modern study on Black Seed was published in 1959 and since then, hundreds of studies at international universities and articles published in various journals have shown remarkable results supporting the benefits and uses of Black Seed alone or combined with other complimentary herbs.

Amazingly Black Seed's chemical composition is very rich and diverse. It contains the phytochemicals thymoquinone and crystalline nigellone as well as anti-oxidants, amino acids, proteins, carbohydrates, fixed oils (EFA's 3/6/9), volatile oils, alkaloids, saponin, and fiber, as well as minerals such as calcium, iron, sodium and potassium. There are still many components in Black Seed that haven't been identified and research is going on around the world to help shed more light into this remarkable little seed.

Digestive Enzymes:

The benefits of digestive enzymes include weight loss, better digestion and assimilation of nutrients, and more! The human body produces digestive enzymes that break down the food you eat into nutrients. The nutrients are then absorbed into your body through the small intestine. As we age, our bodies naturally start to produce fewer digestive enzymes… which can cause discomforts such as bloating, gas and indigestion. When you are lacking all the enzymes you need, your body doesn't digest properly, and as a result, your body doesn’t absorb the nutrients it needs.


If you experience bloating, gas, constipation, heartburn, acid reflux, low energy, or irritable bowel syndrome, you may be lacking digestive enzymes. Digestive enzyme supplements are completely natural and aid in breaking down your food so you can properly absorb the nutrients. By simply taking a digestive enzyme with every meal, you can avoid symptoms like bloating, acid reflux and gas!



The term probiotic is derived from Greek, and literally means "for life." It's used to describe the good bacteria that inhabit the human intestinal tract.There are many health benefits to probiotics. Probiotics promote proper intestinal environment (also known as "gut flora"), and stimulate the gastrointestinal tract and boost the immune system. By strengthening this important part of the digestive system, probiotics have been shown to help with the following conditions:
  • Antibiotic-induced diarrheaThank you for reading our blog!
  • Vaginal yeast infections
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Eczema
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Food Allergies
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Crohn's disease
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
Antibiotics are great at what they are meant to do, kill bacteria. The problem is that they kill all the good bacteria in our intestinal tract. After taking an antibiotic, it is extremely important to replenish that killed bacteria with a probiotic. Without good bacteria in the gut, the immune system is compromised, resulting in a wide variety of health issues.
You can get probiotics in supplement form or in fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kombucha, and kefir… all of which we carry at Total Health Foods! Stop in today and make your gut happy.
