To Whom It May Concern: 

Nigella Sativa was discovered in th Giza pyramid in Tutankhamen’s tomb (1567-1320 B.C), implying that it played an important role in ancient Egyptian practices. Although its exact role in Egyptian culture is not known, we do know that items entombed with a king were carefully selected to assist him in the afterlife. The plants found can be seen on display in the Cairo Museum in Egypt. 

The earliest written reference to black seed is found in the book of Isiah in the Old Testament. Isiah contrasts the reaping of black cumin with wheat: For the black cumin is not threshed with a threshing sledge, nor is a cart wheel rolled over the cumin, but the black cumin is beaten out with a stick, and the cumin with a rod. (Isiah 28:25,27 NKJV). Easton’s Bible Dictionary clarifies that the Hebrew word for black cumin, “ketsah,” refers to “without doubt the Nigella Sativa, a small annual of the order Ranunculaceae which grows wild in the Mediterranean countries, and is cultivated in Egypt and Syria for its seed.” 

Dioscoredes, a Greek physician of the 1st century, recorded that black seeds were taken to treat headaches, nasal congestion, toothache, and intestinal worms. They were also used, he reported, as a diuretic to promote menstruation and increase milk production. 

The Muslim scholar al-Biruni (973-1048), who composed a treatise on the early origins of Indian and Chinese drugs, mentions that the black seed is a kind of grain called alwanak in the Sigzi dialect. Later, this was confirmed by Suhar Bakh who explained it to be habb-I-Sajzi (viz.Sigzi grains). This reference to black seed as “grains” points to the seed’s possible nutritional use during the tenth and eleventh centuries. 

In the Greco-Arab/Urani-Tibb system of medicine, which originated from Hippocrates, his contemporary Galen and Ibn Sina, black seed has been regarded as a valuable remedy in hepatic and digestive disorders and has been described as a stimulant in a variety of conditions, ascribed to an imbalance of cold humors. 

Ibn Sina (980-1037), famous for his volumes called “The Canon of Medicine,” regarded by many as the most famous book in the history of medicine, East or West, refers to black seed as the seed “that stimulates the body’s energy and helps recovery from fatigue and disspiritedness.” 

Black seed is also included in the list of natural drugs of Al-Tibb al-Nabawi. There is a traditional saying “Hold onto the use of the black seed for it has a remedy for every illness except death.” This prophetic reference in describing black seed as “having a remedy for all illnesses” may not be so exaggerated as it at first appears. Recent research has provided evidence that indicates that black seed contains the ability to significantly boost the the human immune system –if taken over time. The prophetic phrase “hold onto the use of the seed, also emphasizes consistent usage of the seed. 

Black seed has been traditionally and successfully used in the Middle and Far East countries to treat ailments including bronchial asthma and bronchitis, rheumatism and related inflammatory diseases, to increase milk production in nursing mothers, to treat digestive disturbances, to support the body’s immune system, to promote digestion and elimination, and to fight parasitic infestation. Its oil has been used to treat skin conditions such as eczema and boils and is used topically to treat cold symptoms. 

The many uses of black seed have earned for this medicinal herb the Arabic approbation habbatul barakah, meaning “the seed of blessing”. 

Biological Components of Nigella Sativa     Top

Research studies confirm that black seed is the only natural herb that contains over 100 valuable biological nutrients, some of which have yet to be identified. It is a significant source of essential fatty acids, which are the building blocks of cells. Besides building cells and repairing tissue, form antibody to combat invading bacteria and viruses; they are part of the enzyme and hormonal system: they build nucleoproteins, (RNA/ DNA): they carry oxygen throughout the body and participate in muscle activity. 

Also rich in vitamins and minerals, natural vitamins are organic food substances found only in living things, that is, plants and animals. With few exceptions the body cannot manufacture or synthesize vitamins. They must be supplied in the diet or in dietary supplements. Vitamins and minerals are essential to the normal functioning of our bodies. They are necessary for our growth, vitality, and general well being. 

Although some of the nutrients found in Black Seed are in small quantities, they are significant.

Below is only a partial list of some of the components and their reactions within the body.
