What is a longer life worth to you?
Black Seed has been traced back over 3000 years. It has always been used extensively for a multitude of purposes and as a food supplement for hundreds of civilizations.
It has an abundance of names and is most commonly referred to as Nigella, black seed or black cumin seed in Western countries.
The earliest written reference is in the book of Isaiah in the Old Testament where it is referred to as “ketzah” a spice for bread and cakes that can be used in many ways.
Isaiah said that: "Black Cumin is as important as wheat".
It is also known to have been used by Cleopatra and Queen Nefertiti was an avid user of black cumin seed oil.
Not only was the oil of black cumin found in Tutankhamen’s tomb, which indicates that it formed part of the carefully entombed items to assist a king in the afterlife, Nigella seeds with honey were found in the tomb, which are still usable.
Though black cumin seeds are mentioned in the Bible as well as in the words of the Prophet Mohammed, they were not carefully researched until about forty years ago.
Since this time, more than 200 studies have been conducted in universities. In modern times Nigella is going through a much deserved renaissance and is one of the most sought after plants on the superfood market.
