Product Description

Size: 16 Oz

Nigella sativa seed is variously called Black cumin, fennel flower, nutmeg flower, Roman coriander, blackseed, black caraway, or black onion seed. Other names used, sometimes misleadingly, are onion seed and black sesame, both of which are similar-looking but unrelated. The seeds are frequently referred to as black cumin (as in Bengali kalo jira), but this is also used for a different spice, Bunium persicum. The scientific name is a derivative of Latin niger "black". In English-speaking countries with large immigrant populations, it is also variously known as kalonji, kezah Hebrew קצח), chernushka (Russian), çörek otu (Turkish), habbat albarakah. How to Eat Black Seeds: 1) Black Seed Tea is very common in Egypt. Just boil the black seed and water, Keep it for 10 minutes, Strain and drink. 2) Black Seed bread is very common in Africa. Add 2 Tbsp of black seed in the dough and bake the bread. 3) Black seeds are very easy to sprout and germinate. Throw the seeds in soil. Water for few days and you will see beautiful shoots that will produce purple flowers. Micro greens can be added to salad. 4) Black seed can be used in salad. Just mix a 1 tsp of seeds in salad dressing or throw 1 or 2 tsp of seeds in salad. 5) Roast the Black seeds in a pan and munch them. Seeds are aromatic with slightly peppery taste. 6) Powder the black seeds in a spice blender and eat them with honey 7) Sprinkle the Black Seeds in your yogurt bowl. 8) Use them in curry with other spices.

I decided to try these after reading up on the studies that have shown the benefit for Type II Diabetics. My experience has been startling. My blood sugars have dropped drastically in this past month or so of using this.. I've tested often to verify these findings over time, but even my diabetic counselor from the clinic is impressed and is going to suggest this to some of her other patients.

I have been on a stable routine of long acting Lantus for some months now, and then used the fast acting Novolog for higher carb meals. However, since about two weeks after starting the daily use of black seed, I've no longer required the Novolog. Before using black seed my blood sugar would raise over 80 points when I tested it 2 hrs after eating 8 cups of popcorn. Now my blood sugar raises about 30 points 2 hours after consuming that same amount of popcorn. I've seen the same results with other foods that I've taken.

Another interesting thing that I've noticed is that I use to get very shaky when my blood sugars would drop into the 80s and by the time they had dropped into the 70s I could no longer hold onto things due to the tremors. Now I wake up with fasting sugars in the low 70s and no shaking or signs of hypoglycemia. My counselor is advocating a drop in Lantus at this point.

I make an overnight oatmeal in the slow cooker and I add black seed to that oatmeal, then add 1/2 teaspoon of raw seed to the bowl when I dish it up, along with 1 rounded tsp of Ceylon cinnamon which I purchase here as well (Frontier organic ). The cinnamon usage had helped to bring my blood sugars down a bit, but that effect had stabilized several months ago. The black seed dropped my overall sugars even more significantly than the cinnamon.

Indus Organic Black Mustard Seeds, 1 Lb Jar

This product is awesome, if you are a diabetic type 2 on metformin,try it. I take half teaspoon in the morning mix with something & another half in the evening in tea,oatmeal or else. Black seed is truly a lowering blood sugar. I test daily.

It's also called Kalonji in Hindi and available at most Indian Grocery stores at 1/4 the price. It's used in pickles, on breads and has many health benefits.

I have been battling mold illness for over a year, and have tried every natural remedy that is suggested for this disease. Despite being a bodybuilder, my metabolism refuses to regain its original state. This is just one of the illness's many symptoms mind you. On top of that, I recently had a bad adjustment from a chiropractor, and my back has been in pain every day for 2 1/2 weeks. Basically my world has been crumbling before my very eyes.

Then a friend recommended these seeds. I also purchased the oil as well. OMG. This stuff is no joke. Within 24 all the inflammation in my body had gone down dramatically, and I only took 1 tbsp of the seeds and the oil. The next day I took the same dose, and my body looks insanely leaner and my back is even feeling a bit better. Now don' t kid yourself - I am not recommending this for weight loss. My diet and exercise routine has always been strict. I feel this is simply balancing my body and counteracting the inflammation.

One word of caution - up your dose slowly. I felt a bit nauseous on the second day. I will take only a tsp of each a day from now on. Also, my heart rate is a bit higher, so I am proceeding with caution.

One more note: Please do not be offended that I am reviewing both the seeds and the oil. I assure you that the seeds are doing just as much good as the oil. I just chose to order both at the same time.

This humble, but immensely powerful seed, kills MRSA, heals the chemical weapon poisoned body, stimulates regeneration of the dying beta cells with the diabetic's pancreas, and yet too few even know it exists.

The seeds of the annual flowering plant, Nigella Sativa, have been prized for their healing properties since time immemorial. While frequently referred to among English-speaking cultures as Roman coriander, black sesame, black cumin, black caraway and onion seed, it is known today primarily as black seed, which is at the very least an accurate description of its physical appearance.

The earliest record of its cultivation and use come from ancient Egypt. Black seed oil, in fact, was found in Egyptian pharoah Tutankhamun's tomb, dating back to approximately 3,300 years ago.[i] In Arabic cultures, black cumin is so known as Habbatul barakah, meaning the "seed of blessing." It is also believed that the Islamic prophet Mohammed said of it that it is "a remedy for all diseases except death."

Many of black cumin's traditionally ascribed health benefits have been thoroughly confirmed in the biomedical literature. In fact, since 1964, there have been 458 published, peer-reviewed studies referencing it.
