Black Cumin Powder (Nigella sativa) of the Ranunculaceae family is one of the most commonly used medicinal plants throughout the Middle East. Black seeds are known to have many medicinal properties and are widely used in Greco-Arab and Islamic medicine. For centuries, Nigella sativa seeds have been used as a spice and food preservative and a protective and curative remedy for numerous diseases. The seeds are the main source of the active compounds of the plant. Here, we discuss the dietary and medicinal uses of black cumin seeds in general.
Ancient Egyptian and Greek physicians used black seeds to treat nasal congestion, toothache as a diuretic to promote menstruation and increase milk production. The seeds, known as black seeds, black cumin, or “Habatul-Barakah” in Arabic, have long been prescribed in Greco-Arab and Islamic medicine as well as in Indian and Chinese traditional medicine (Chapter 10) for prevention and treatment of a wide range of diseases, including bronchial asthma, headache, dysentery, infections, obesity, back pain, hypertension, and gastrointestinal problems.
