Amongst the well-celebrated medicinal herbs none compares to the majestic status given to the Black Seed. Known in Latin as Nigella sativa, some of the Black Seed’s titles include: “The Seed of Blessing”, “The Miracle Cure”, “The Cure All” and “The Blessed Herb”. In English the Nigella sativa plant is referred to as “Love in the Mist”.

In his Medicine of the Prophet – Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya lists as many as fifty illnesses for which the black seed has effective healing qualities. A summary of this list according to its pharmacological activity indicates that this seed has: -

  • Immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic, analgesic, anti-septic, anti-viral, and anti-parasitic properties

  • Hormonal, dermatological, urinary tract, gastro-intestinal, and respiratory tract activity

One of the most noted actions of black seed is its effect on the immune system. The Black seed works in assisting the body’s natural healing processes by strengthening the immune system, thereby promoting good health and well-being.
