Black Cumin Oil
Regular price R 154.00
Black cumin oil is made from the seeds of the Nigella sativa plant and is a rich source of essential fatty acids (EFAs). It is used as a nutritional supplement and has potent anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. In particular, black cumin oil can be used to alleviate symptoms of arthritis, eczema, acne, and psoriasis. Researchers believe the active ingredient in black cumin oil is thymoquinone, a phytochemical that strongly influences critical mediators of inflammation.
NOTE: While black cumin oil has been used as traditional medicine for centuries, new research is confirming its benefits and highlighting potential risks. For example, one study from 2010 indicated that black cumin oil inhibits two key enzymes used to metabolise about 75% of pharmaceutical drugs. This suggests black cumin oil should not be used in conjunction with pharmaceutical drugs without consent from a health care professional.
