Also known as Black Cumin, Black Caraway, or the "Blessed Seed", Black Seed has a rich and diverse chemical composition containing the phytochemicals thymoquinone and crystalline nigellone, antioxidants, amino acids, proteins, carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, and minerals like calcium, iron, and potassium.

Millions of people in Asia, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and Africa have used Black Seed for thousands of years to support the body with a variety of concerns like respiratory health, stomach and intestinal complaints, circulatory and immune system support, and skin conditions. Black Seed may support metabolism and improve digestion, and published studies have shown that it may have a healthy effect on blood sugar levels.
