Using Black Seed Oil for Diabetes

Black Seed oil for diabetes

Black seed oil

Black seed oil — also known as Nigella sativa oil and Black Cumin Seed oil — is advocated by natural healers for its many health benefits. Black Seed oil is extracted from the seeds of the Nigella sativa plant, also called kalonji.

Can black seed oil be used to treat diabetes?

Diabetes, a common disease that affects the body’s ability to produce and respond to insulin, is estimated to affect 1.2 million people aged 2 years and over (5.1% of the population) in Australia.

There are two main kinds of diabetes: Type 1 and Type 2. Among other things, this condition results in elevated blood sugar (glucose), and left untreated, high blood sugar from diabetes can damage your nerves, eyes, kidneys, and other organs.

Recent research into alternative and complementary medicines has found that Black seed oil has positive results in correcting blood sugar levels in diabetes including:

  • A 2017 review of clinical trials concluded that along with other effects, the hypoglycemic effect of Black Cumin Seed (Nigella Sativa) has been sufficiently studied and understood to allow for the next phase of clinical trials or drug development.
  • A 2017 study concluded that black cumin seed oil over time reduced HbA1c — the average blood glucose levels — by increasing insulin production, decreasing insulin resistance, stimulating cellular activity, and decreasing intestinal insulin absorption.
  • A 2016 overview in the British Journal of Pharmaceutical Research, indicated that the role of Nigella Sativa seeds in treating diabetes is substantially important (enhancing insulin production, glucose tolerance, and beta cell proliferation). The overview concluded that the seeds also can play a significant role in the treatment of diabetes complications such as nephropathy, neuropathy, and atherosclerosis.
  • A 2014 study concluded that adding turmeric and Black Seed to the diet of diabetic rats reduced blood glucose, water, and food intake.
  • A 2013 study concluded that high doses of Nigella Sativa (Black Cumin Seed) oil significantly elevated serum insulin levels in diabetic rats, providing a therapeutic effect.

Did you know?

  1. Researches have shown that black seed oil can help in regulating the blood sugar levels in diabetics.
  2. Diabetes increases the risk of heart problems in patients by reducing the good cholesterol levels in the body. The consumption of black seed oil can boost the good cholesterol levels and thus, reduces the risk of heart diseases.

Fighting Inflammation with Black Seed Oil

Black seed oil for diabetes has gained popularity because of its effectiveness against hyperglycemia—increase in the blood sugar levels. It is due to the anti-inflammatory effect of Black Seed oil that helps fight inflammation in the body, which is one of the main causes of hyperglycemia.

Findings of several studies have shown black seed oil to minimize inflammation in the body. Moreover, adding black seed oil in the diet has also been an effective way of reducing oxidative stress in the body and thus, lowering the risks of any further complications caused by diabetes

Components of Black Seed oil

According to a 2015 medical journal review, thymoquinone is one of the most potent parts of Black Seed oil’s hypoglycemic effect. The 2015 medical review called for molecular and toxicological studies to identify effective and safe ingredients of the seed for use on diabetic patients in clinical trials.

Among active ingredients of Black Cumin Seed oil are the antioxidants:

  • thymoquinone
  • beta-sisterol
  • nigellone

Black Seed oil also contains amino acids such as:

  • linoleic
  • oleic
  • palmitic
  • stearic

Minerals and Vitamins in Black Seed Oil

Potassium—found in abundance in Black Seeds—is important to regulate blood pressure in diabetics. However, patients suffering from diabetes are commonly found to be suffering from a deficiency of potassium (hypokalemia).

Therefore, using Black Seed oil for diabetes can prove to be an effective way to counter the deficiency. Besides this, Black Seed oil is full of iron and vitamin C, which are important nutrients in promoting overall health in diabetics.

Using Black Seed Oil

If you decide to start using Black Seed oil, make sure you look into a premium quality cold-pressed virgin Black Seed oil. The Black Seed Co’s Double Strength Black Seed oil is 100% freshly cold-pressed and unrefined virgin Black Seed oil from Nigella Sativa. Each bottle of Double Strength Black Seed oil comes specially packed into glass amber bottles, to help protect and preserve the freshness and quality of the oil.

Most of the medicinal benefits of Black Seed oil are due to the content of the volatile oil. Thymoquinone is the most important and major bioactive component of the volatile oil and is responsible for most of the therapeutic properties. The more volatile oil there is a bottle of Black Seed oil, the more Thymoquinone we can expect to be present and therefore, the more healing capabilities.  With 4.0-4.9% of volatile oil, Double Strength Black Seed oil is potentially 4-5 times more potent than regular Black Seed oils on the market.
