Black Cumin Seed (Nigella Sativa)

July  2015, I  started taking 1 tsp of the Nigella sativa oil in morning.  Now, I just add  1/2-1 tsp Black Cumin Seeds to my smoothie every morning and I just found that there is a gel cap of Black Cumin Seed oil.

It is evident that thymoquinone, the predominant constituent of N. sativa volatile oil has a wide spectrum of favorable effects. In our review we concentrated on four properties of TQ: hepatoprotective, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-cancer effects, which are supported by evidence-based research elaborating the molecular mechanisms
TQ up-regulates CD95 expression on the surface of MM cells and increases their susceptibility to Fas-mediated apoptosis. …Recently, Li et al. also reported that TQ inhibits the proliferation and induces the apoptosis of MM cells through the suppression of stat3 activation pathway [53].
