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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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.
