Black cumin (Nigella sativa) is an herb native to the Middle Eastern and South-Asian regions of the world, and has long been used in traditional healing systems for a variety of treatments. Ayurvedic medicine as well as Unani practices demonstrate the uses of black cumin seed against diseases and conditions related to inflammation, obesity, and hypercholesterolemia. When following a supplemental dose of N. sativa daily, patient trials have resulted in lowered levels of total cholesterol and LDL‑C, as well as higher levels of HDL‑C, providing measurable verification of the herb’s therapeutic qualities. Today, many practitioners are finding black cumin to be a potent herb in adjunctive cancer treatment. Recent studies and clinical experimentation have demonstrated the positive effects of black cumin in the prevention of cancer via free-radical scavenging and promotion of apoptosis. These seeds contain a number of substances attributed to their healing potential, including thymoquinone, saponins, alkaloids, and high levels of beneficial fatty acids including linoleic acid and oleic acid.
