WHAT IS BLACK SEED OIL?
Black seed oil comes from the seed of the black cumin plant, known as Nigella sativa.
The flowering plant is native to southwestern Asia, Africa and the Mediterranean. It is characterized by branched stems, pale blue or white flowers, and fruit pods filled with seeds.
The seeds themselves are black in color, triangular in shape, and pungent in flavor. They are used as a culinary spice and as herbal medicine. The seeds are rich in natural compounds that possess therapeutic properties.
Black seed oil has a long history of use in various cultures for its medicinal and culinary purposes. Its usage can be traced back to ancient times, and it has been mentioned in various historical texts and religious scriptures. Its fame extended from India to the Middle East, cherished as a source of vitality and vigor. In Egypt, black seed oil was found in the tomb of King Tutankhamun, solidifying its place in history.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ANTLER FARMS® BLACK SEED OIL?
The heart of black seed oil's benefits is its strong nutritional profile. It has a rich and complex composition, containing various bioactive compounds. Thymoquinone, in particular, is considered its most active and influential component, contributing significantly to the oil's medicinal properties.
The thymoquinone in black seed oil has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and immunomodulatory properties.
In addition, black seed oil contains vitamins A, B, C, D, and E, a spectrum of minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc, and potassium, and a blend of omega-3, 6 and 9 fatty acids.
STRENGTHENS IMMUNE SYSTEM: The immune system serves as our body's frontline defense against pathogens and infections. Studies have shown that black seed oil acts as an immune modulator, helping to strengthen and regulate the body’s immune response. It supports the immune system by enhancing the activity of immune cells, such as T cells, natural killer (“NK”) cells, and macrophages.
One study published in the Immunopharmacology and Immunotoxicology journal (2005) found that black seed oil significantly increased the activity of NK cells. NK cells are white blood cells that destroy infected and diseased cells. They play a crucial role in defending the body against infections and tumor cells.
PROVIDES CARDIOVASCULAR SUPPORT: Black seed oil can have a positive impact on cardiovascular health by reducing cholesterol levels, improving blood pressure, and enhancing heart function. These effects contribute to a reduced risk of heart disease.
A study published in the Journal of Hypertension reported that black seed oil supplementation led to a significant reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure in patients with high blood pressure.
Also, a study published in the Journal of Endocrinological Investigation found that black seed oil supplementation led to a significant decrease in LDL cholesterol levels and an increase in HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) levels.
COMBATS CELL DAMAGE: Free radicals cause oxidative stress and damage cells, leading to aging and various health conditions. Thymoquinone is an antioxidant in black seed oil that can neutralize free radicals and help maintain cellular integrity and function. It has been extensively studied for its pharmacological properties.
A study published in the Journal of Enzyme Inhibition and Medicinal Chemistry (2008) highlighted the antioxidant potential of black seed oil, emphasizing its protective role against oxidative damage.
REDUCES INFLAMMATION: Chronic inflammation can lead to various health issues, including autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular problems, and neurodegenerative disorders. It is closely linked to oxidative stress. Thymoquinone possesses anti-inflammatory properties, and its ability to reduce inflammation is a main contributor to black seed oil’s overall health benefits.
A study published in Phytotherapy Research found that black seed oil suppressed the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines and promoted the production of anti-inflammatory cytokines. Cytokines are signaling proteins that help control inflammation in your body.
Another study published in the Journal of Food Science and Technology investigated the effects of black seed oil on arthritis-induced rats. The results indicated that black seed oil reduced inflammation and improved arthritis symptoms, showcasing its potential as a complementary therapy for joint health.
IMPROVES RESPIRATORY HEALTH: The anti-inflammatory properties of black seed oil can be beneficial for respiratory health. It may help alleviate symptoms of asthma, bronchitis, and allergies by reducing inflammation and relaxing muscles in the airway.
A study published in Phytotherapy Research demonstrated that black seed oil significantly improved lung function and asthma symptoms in asthmatic patients. A study published in the International Archives of Allergy and Immunology found that black seed oil exhibited antihistaminic effects, contributing to its potential as a natural remedy for managing respiratory allergies.
SUPPORTS SKIN AND HAIR HEALTH: The properties in black seed oil provide benefits for the skin. The antioxidants in black seed oil helps protect the skin from damage, which is a leading cause of premature aging. It may also reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots, promoting a more youthful complexion.
Additionally, anti-inflammatory properties of black seed oil make it beneficial for those with inflammatory skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and acne. It can help soothe redness, irritation, and swelling, providing relief to irritated skin.
Thymoquinone has been found to promote hair growth by increasing the number of hair follicles and stimulating hair regrowth. By nourishing the hair follicles and improving blood circulation to the scalp, black seed oil can help prevent hair loss and thinning. The nutrients also strengthen the hair shaft, reducing breakage and split ends.
HOW IS ANTLER FARMS® BLACK SEED OIL PROCESSED?
Antler Farms® Black Seed Oil begins with the highest quality black cumin seeds cultivated and harvested in Turkey. Turkish black cumin seeds naturally contain the highest amount of thymoquinone compared to other sources.
These seeds are collected from the mature seed pods in the summer. After harvesting, the seeds are sun dried. Once the seeds are thoroughly dried, they are cleaned to remove any impurities, dust, or debris. Next, the dried seeds are cold-pressed to extract the oil. Cold-pressing is a gentle method of oil extraction that does not subject the seeds to high temperatures. This is important to preserve its nutritional content and minimizes degradation.
After the oil is extracted, it undergoes a filtering process to remove any remaining seed particles or impurities. This final step helps ensure that the oil is pure and clean, prior to softgel encapsulation. Testing is done on each batch to verify the thymoquinone content.
Antler Farms Black Seed Oil is highly concentrated, standardized to contain at least 2% thymoquinone. Our black seed oil is 7-10X stronger than most black seed oil products in the market.
Note that the quality of black seed oil on the market varies widely depending on factors such as the quality of the seeds, the extraction method used, and the overall production process. When you buy from Antler Farms®, you can be confident that you are getting the purest, cleanest, most potent black seed oil, with a guaranteed 2% thymoquinone content.
Antler Farms® Black Seed Oil is vegan, gluten free, soy free, dairy free and GMO free, with no additives or fillers.
