Black Seed Oil Benefits the Immune System
Though science has not officially come out and verified it, many experts are admitting that that black seed oil benefits the immune system in an amazing way. It’s not that any single element in black seed oil is integral to immune system function, but the complex dynamics of black seed oil’s 100 different chemicals seem to work together in a way that no other naturally occurring substance seems to do. Science believes that the whole is nothing more than the sum of its parts, but this doesn’t seem to be the case with black seed oil. Here, the complex association of compounds seem to augment and enhance the properties of each other, giving a total immune system boost. This effect has been noted for centuries. In fact, the Mohammed, the prophet to Islam was quoted as saying that black seed oil “heals every disease except death.”
One of the reasons why black seed oil is so helpful to the immune system is because it helps bring the whole immune system back into balance. Black seed oil has powerful anti-inflammatory and antihistamine effects that allow the immune system to come down from a stage of heightened alert. There was a study once done in Munich, Germany where 600 allergy patients were given 500mg of black seed oil two times each day for a three month period. After the three month period ended 85% of the patients exhibited a clear improvement in their symptoms. So not only does black seed oil have compounds which directly give the immune system a nice boost, it also has properties which indirectly boost the immune system by allowing it to relax in areas like inflammation response and allergic reaction.
Western medicine generally creates drugs which target one specific effect. Antibiotics for example, are tailored to target specific strains of bacteria. Blood pressure medication was tailored to cause a reduction in one thing only, hypertension. The list goes on. Western medicine doesn’t really know what to do with compounds that seem to have an overall positive effect on the body. Since it can’t really be measured in quantifiable terms, they don’t really know what to do with it. If you get sick often, then the immune system benefits of black seed oil are probably for you. Give it a try.
