What is Black Seed Oil?
Black seed oil is a natural oil extracted from the seeds of the Nigella sativa plant. It contains nigella and melatin, the two ingredients that make this oil such a powerful treatment. These two ingredients promote cleansing, act as an antihistamine, and work against respiratory ailments. Not only this, they are full of antioxidants which help to cleanse the skin and body of toxins.
Black seed provides a generous supply of polyunsaturated fatty acids. These ingredients work to regulate the metabolism, carry toxins to the skin’s surface for elimination, balance insulin levels, regulate hormone levels, regulate cholesterol, improve body circulation, and helps to heal skin diseases. The list goes on and on… Black seed oil contains over 100 valuable nutrients. It is comprised of approximately 21% protein, 38% carbohydrates, 35% plant fats and oils. The oil contains a significant amount of calcium, potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium, selenium, vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin B12, niacin, and vitamin C.
