Nigella Sativa (black cumin) seeds
Nigella sativa is known by various other names such as: black caraway, fennel flower, nutmeg flower, Roman coriander, kaljeera, habbat al-barakah, among others.
References to black cumin seeds date back thousands of years. It is mentioned in the Bible in the book of Isaiah, in chapter 28, verses 25 and 27.
Black cumin seeds were found in the tomb of Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun, who ruled Egypt from 1333 BC to 1324 BC, and they were found in a pilgrim flask in Turkey from the ancient Hittite empire, dating from around 1650 BC. The Islamic prophet is reported to have stated that black cumin seeds are "the remedy for all diseases but death."
Due to FDA laws, we cannot make any health claims for black seeds as we would be guilty of selling an "unapproved drug." A search of Pubmed, the database of US National Library of Medicine, funded by your tax dollars and the National Institute of Health, however, will find over 1000 peer-reviewed studies on nigella sativa. The seeds and oil have been used in Middle Eastern cuisine for thousands of years.
