Default Black Seed

Hello everyone

I don't know if this subject has been discussed before or not, but I am reading about the black seed since a while, it is also known as the black cumin, Roman coriander and with the scientific name of Nigella sativa, articles assures that it has many benefits , some are BP and cholesterol lowering, quoting from an article (stimulates regeneration of the dying beta cells within the diabetic's pancreas).

At home we use this herb in almost all recipes, they say that this herb reduces BG levels effectively and is good for food allergies

Personally I add it to my cheese in breakfast meals, you will find it spread over some bread products along with sesame.

I also read that one should be careful with the amount of intake as too much of it might be harmful.
Hope this topic is useful

Tarek I tried black seed and it worked the first time, but NOT the second. I am fond of it as a flavoring, but cannot assume it is helpful.

Hmmm.. I use a pinch of black cumin when I cook indian food. I use it 3-4 times a week. Is that too much? Mu mum in law taught me how to cook traditional indian dishes and she uses it a lot.

I just took a pinch of it and chewed it until it was gone. It gave me a sore throat. Now I need a light beer to get my throat right. I don't know if black seed is good or bad, but I do know beer is good;-)

Tarek, do doctors in Egypt frequently recommend black seed or black seed oil for helping diabetics reduce their blood glucose values? Do you have some research references that show that it delivers results.?

I have read of some work done in Saudi Arabia, but it did not prove conclusive results.

By the way, apart from using it on bread it can also be found here in some white cheeses. Tastes great.

You really have courage to chew it, it is very bitter, I never dare to

Philip, Doctors in Egypt rarely recommend herbs, but we have many herbal products licensed from MOHealty in the market, here is a great scientific research from examine.com, (it is really must read)
Nigella sativa - Scientific Review on Usage, Dosage, Side Effects | Examine.com

5 studies (100% consensus) on blood Glucose , check the studies and tell me what you think, also very good news for cholesterol control.

Hi Tinss_C,

I think not much at all,

I found this traditional Indian recipe to fight high BS, and I think I will try it next Aug when we have new crop of pomegranate, I don't know what is fumitory or watercress, but will try without them, why don't check with your mum in law about it.

(Mix a cup of whole Black Seeds, a cup of watercress or mustard seeds, half a cup of pomegranate peel, and half a cup of fumitory. Grind the mixture to powder. Take half a teaspoon of the mixture together with a teaspoon of Black Seed Oil daily before breakfast for one month.)
