Black Seed Oil Benefits

What is Black Seed Oil?

Black Seed Oil

Old Egyptian kings deemed it a gem. King Tut was even buried with a bottle of this oil, wishing that he’d take it along to the afterlife.

Despite its astounding reputation, some people might still inquire: what is black seed oil? It refers to the oil extracted from the seeds of Nigella Sativa Plant. Black seeds are also referred by a myriad of names such as:

Black Seed Oil to Treat Cancer

The benefits of black seed oil are simply inexhaustible. Several scientists in Croatia conducted tests to examine the anti-tumor properties of two phytochemicals, thymohydroquinone and thymoquinone, in rodents.

The tumor cells decreased by a whopping 52%! Black seed oil is quite rich in these two chemicals and was found to prevent as well as treat cancer via an assortment of mechanisms such as anti-metastasis, anti-proliferation, cell cycle arrest and apoptosis induction.

Black Seed Oil to Rejuvenates Unhealthy Liver

The liver is a crucial organ in the human body. It’s paramount that you keep it healthy and toxin-free by avoiding an overindulgence of alcohol and illegal drugs.

However, if you’ve experienced a deteriorating liver function due to issues such as disease, alcohol binging or medication, consuming black seed oil will help nurse your liver to full health. Black seed oil has some curative properties which include:

  • Anti-bacterial
  • Anti-coagulant
  • Anti-histamine
  • Anti-oxidant
  • Anti-fungal
  • Anti-viral

Therefore, make it a habit to take black seed oil as it helps prevent liver damage and disease.

Black Seed Oil helps in Weight Loss

Yet another awe-inspiring property of black seed oil. Weight loss is usually a hard nut to crack among some people, especially today when fast food is the rage.

However, the Diabetes and Metabolic Disorders Journal reviewed the composition of plants that helped in weight loss and listed black seed oil among the best natural anti-obesity plants in the world. Black seeds aid in keeping your blood glucose levels stable. They also aid in liver gluconeogenesis as well as the absorption of glucose in your intestines. Take advantage of these black seed oil weight loss properties that will transform your life.

Prevent Hair Loss with Black Seed Oil

One unique property of black seed oil is its exciting ability to restore your hair.

Scientists are still boggled by how this works, but one thing’s for sure: black seed oil has holistic curative and restorative properties. Perhaps the most outstanding traits of the nigella sativa plant that could help unravel its hair restorative powers are the strong antimicrobial and antioxidant compounds it contains. Black seed oil consolidates your hair follicles and strengthens your hair roots, helping to treat cases of dry or thinning hair. It also reverses premature graying of hair. Therefore, if you notice your hairline receding or your hair turning gray, trust black seed oil for hair restoration.

Interview with a real-life vampire: why drinking blood isn’t like in Hollywood by: Kim Wall

People who claim to be vampires are in the thousands, with demographics transcending class, race and gender. But there’s a reason they stay in the shadows

Drinking blood isn’t what Hollywood makes it out to be, according to real-life vampires.

First of all, there’s no biting – that’s neither safe nor sanitary – and with too many vital arteries, the neck isn’t the favored spot. Transactions aren’t carnages leaving the victim lifeless behind in a dark alley, and nor do vampires sleep in coffins or burn in daylight. They’re generally cool with garlic. Most of them don’t even have fangs.

Instead, modern vampires get their sustenance from inch-long incisions made by a sterilized scalpel on a fleshy part of the body that doesn’t scar. Though the vampire may suck it up directly from the source, medically trained personnel usually perform the procedure. There’s paperwork too: “donors” don’t just have to consent, but also provide health certificates proving the absence of blood-borne diseases. Still, feeding is a sensual and sacred ritual.

“We’re people you pass on the street and likely socialize with on a daily basis,” says Merticus, the 37-year-old founding member of Atlanta’s Vampire Alliance. “We often keep this aspect of our life secret for fear we’ll be misunderstood and to safeguard against reprisals from what society deems taboo.”

Merticus has identified as a real vampire since 1997, and speaks eloquently and passionately about what vampirism is and what it is not. (“Not a cult, a religion, a dangerous practice, a paraphilia, an offshoot of the BDSM community, a community of disillusioned teenagers and definitely not what’s depicted in fictional books, movies or television.”) 

An antique dealer by profession, married with two dogs, he’s one of exceptionally few vampires to be open about his identity (“I hide in plain sight,” he explains). For almost a decade, he has personally worked with academics, social scientists, psychologists, lawyers, law enforcement agencies and others on how to best approach, research and understand the vampire subculture.

An Atlanta native, he is known as Merticus both legally and personally – even on his Starbucks card. And while he mostly dresses head-to-toe in black, he doesn’t don colored lenses or fang prosthetics. In fact, he is keen to say he isn’t into it because vampirism is “cool”. Real vampires don’t care much for pop culture buzz, and most don’t look the stereotype (only some 35% of real vampires are into goth, he claims). Some even sneer at the “lifestylers” (also known as “fashion vampires” and “posers”).
