“Black cumin is healing for all diseases except death.” Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)

Studies on the positive effects of black cumin have a long history. Even a simple list of the titles of these studies would take many pages. The research in the fields of modern biochemistry, organic chemistry, cytology (cell biology), and physiology has come up with interesting results.

One of these studies demonstrated that black cumin decreases the release of proteins IL-6, TNF-α, and NO by inhibiting pro-inflammatory T helper-1 cells which act as soldiers for our immune system, and has an anti-inflammatory effect by stimulating the number of protective cells that are released by our bone marrows, known as natural killers [1]. Another study found that it helps to increase the number of macrophages and neutrophiles which identify and destroy foreign materials and which must be found in certain amounts in our blood at all times, by stimulating the functioning of bone marrows and, as such, they perform immunomodulatory functions. As regards the autoimmune diseases, in which the immune system targets the cells of one's own body, black cumin acts differently and eliminates autoimmunity, thereby contributing to protection against, and prevention of, attacks [2].
