Herbs have been used for thousands of years to prevent disease, solve health problems and treat diseases. In fact, 50% of drugs in modern medicine come from nature. Many ancient civilizations have records of herbal plants and their medicinal uses. India's Ayurvedic medicine system, China's Chinese medicine system is a good proof. Many herbs are documented in multiple medical systems. Among them, the classic example is the “black grass”. For centuries, many regional and national medical systems, including Europe, Asia, the Mediterranean, Turkey and the Middle East, have their medicinal figures.
Nigella sativa, also known as "Black Seed" or "Blackcumin Black Fen", is known in the Arab countries as "the seed of blessing." Black grass seeds and black grass seed oil have been used for hundreds of years for a variety of health problems such as diabetes, diarrhea, rheumatoid, appetite and bronchitis. But in addition to these traditional applications, modern research shows that black seed oil also has a variety of other health benefits, such as anti-cancer, anti-bacterial, deworming, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, gastrointestinal protection, liver protection, cardiovascular protection and antioxidant Wait.

Black grass seed oil is extracted from high-quality black grass raw materials. Many clinical tests show that black seed oil has significant anti-allergic effects, especially for seasonal allergies, allergic rhinitis and asthma. A clinical study of 63 children (6-17 years old) showed an improvement in 80% of allergic rhinitis and bronchial asthma symptoms. Another clinical study of inhaled allergy in 20 adults showed that subjective and allergic symptoms were alleviated in all subjects. Black grass seed oil does not have any side effects while relieving allergic symptoms in adults and children. Nigellin "has been promoted in Canada to reduce/reduce the health of allergic rhinitis.

Black seed oil protects liver tissue from heavy metals such as lead and reduces lipid peroxidation.
Among the various diabetes models, black grass seed oil as a mature black grass extract, and its thyme ingredients have a positive effect on serum insulin and blood glucose concentration. Biochemical studies have shown that black seed oil and thyme can protect against STZ-type diabetes by reducing the oxidative stress to protect the integrity of pancreatic cells.
In vitro experiments have found that thyme contained in black seed oil has excellent antioxidant effects. In animal experiments, black seed oil can inhibit oxidative damage and lipid peroxidation damage in the liver by increasing glutathione S-transferase, catalase activity and SOD levels.
Black grass seeds can solve a variety of inflammatory problems, and anti-inflammatory is a point of concern for many health problems. In a lipopolysaccharide-induced macrophage experiment, black seed oil showed strong anti-inflammatory effects and inhibited the release of nitric oxide with a half-inhibitory concentration of 6.2 μg/ml. Human clinical studies have shown that black grass seed oil can improve nasal congestion, nasal itching, runny nose, sneezing and turbinate hypertrophy in patients with allergic rhinitis after 2 weeks of use.
