Studies have confirmed black seed benefits in improving blood circulation. The human circulatory system is responsible for sending blood, oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. When blood flow to a specific part of the body is reduced, you may experience symptoms such as cold hands and feet, discolored or pale skin, numbness, varicose veins, swelling or edema, tightening of the chest, fatigue, and so on. Black seed extract could help reduce the symptoms of poor blood circulation by increasing the blood flow while bringing more nutrients and oxygen to the body system especially the extremities.
Aside from verifying its blood circulation benefit, researchers in recent years have tested the anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects of black seed extract. In 1995, a group of scientists from the Department of Pharmacy at King’s College in London found that the extract contains these properties and is an antioxidant as well. They believe the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant abilities may be linked to ingredients such as thymoquinone and unsaturated fatty acids. Long term chronic inflammation may cause high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, diabetes, arthritis, dementia, fatty liver, cancer and others.
Helps with Allergies
Certain conditions like bronchial asthma, allergic rhinitis and eczema cause the body to produce histamines (a substance involved in an allergic response, causing widening of blood vessels and tightening of bronchial passages). When these histamines are released, the body’s immune system goes into overdrive, causing allergic reactions. Researchers have investigated and verified the black-seed-extract antihistamine activity, focusing on nigellone, an ingredient that acts as an inhibitory agent on histamine by inhibiting protein kinase C, known to initiate histamine release. Research also suggests that taking black seed extract improves coughing, wheezing and lung function in people with asthma.
