Black cumin, also known as Nigella sativa or black seed, has a long use history in traditional medicines, particularly Ayurveda.
The most abundant active plant chemical in black cumin is thymoquinone. Traditionally, black cumin has been used for immune-system support, well-being, digestive health, respiratory issues, kidney and liver support, and heart health.
Some regions, such as Asia, value black cumin seeds for their purported anti-aging benefits, and they are rich in B vitamins and iron, deficiencies of which have been linked to memory problems.
