Every day our bodies require vitamins, minerals, enzymes, fats, proteins, carbohydrates, etc. Our typical diets, however, usually lack nutritious value. We make poor diet choices or have limited access to fresh, quality food. Stress and sedentary lifestyles can also lead to a malnourished, worn-out body.
The body also needs to digest and metabolize the good things we eat. If the body can’t metabolize our food, we can still end up malnourished. The body will then steal from the body’s stored reserves whatever nutrients it needs to survive. As reserves are depleted, the body no longer functions at optimal levels. Symptoms and syndromes appear.
A malnourished body will appreciate Black Cumin essential oil as it provides nutrients to support a balanced digestive and ecosystem system. It also supports the immune system and nourishes the blood, heart, lungs, and skin. It has been found to be antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-parasitic, antihistamine, antiseptic, antitumor, anti-inflammatory, and antihypertensive.
Black Cumin Seed has many components. It is high in thymoquinone, a natural and very potent antioxidant. Studies have shown thymoquinone to be beneficial as an anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain relief). It has a bronchodilating effect and inhibits the secretion of histamines, which is beneficial to those with allergies. It aids bile production in the liver and assists in fat metabolism and detoxification. Black Cumin is also high in essential fatty acids such as omega 3 and omega 6, which are known for their effects on brain function, nerve conduction, blood pressure, and the immune system’s defenses. Black Cumin is rich in vitamin B complex (riboflavin, thiamine, niacin) and contains selenium, beta-carotene, arginine, amino acids, calcium, iron, sodium, and potassium. All of these are found in Black Cumin, a balanced whole food, just as nature created it.
