The Tremendous Healing Power of Black Seed Oil

Black seed oil, derived from pressing the seeds of the Nigella Sativa plant, has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. Black seed oil has been used historically as everything from a liver tonic to an appetite stimulant, an analgesic and as an antibacterial agent.

Top 10 Uses for Black Seed Oil

  1. Digestive Complaints: Black seed oil has been shown to reduce digestive tract complaints, including gas, colic, diarrhea, constipation and hemorrhoids. You can also support your gastrointestinal and immune health with Ultra Probiotic Formula.

  3. Lower Blood Pressure: Studies have shown that black seed oil may lower high blood pressure.

  5. Immune Boost: Black seed oil has been used as an immune system booster for hundreds of years.
  6. Cancer: Because it supports the digestive tract well, black seed oil can be used to reduce the side effects of chemotherapy. It is especially useful when treating the nausea that can accompany cancer treatments.

Cautions of Black Seed Oil

When taking black seed oil, however, there needs to be some caution. This oil becomes toxic when taking more than three teaspoons per day, or about 25 grams, so be sure to follow the recommended dosage. Also, it may be a wise precaution to speak with your physician before taking black seed oil, for any condition, to ensure that it will not interact badly with any medications you may be taking.
