BeOrganic Black Cumin is a certified organic product, which exclusively contains dried seeds of black cumin – a popular spice with proven medicinal potential.
Black cumin (Nigella sativa) is a crop plant belonging to the family Ranunculaceae. Its seeds are treated as both a spice and a medicinal raw material. They have a characteristic black color and a sharp, spicy taste with a distinct hint of bitterness. They perfectly match bread, cheese, and some fatty meats. They are used instead of pepper. They are also used to produce black cumin oil.
Black cumin seeds are rich in valuable nutrients and bioactive substances. They contain a lot of fiber and a protein containing as many as eight out of nine essential amino acids. What is more, the seeds contain unsaturated fatty acids, phospholipids, vitamins (B1, B6), mineral compounds (including calcium, magnesium, iron, sodium, potassium, selenium, zinc), flavonoids, alkaloids, and essential oil.
Black cumin seeds support the digestive system. They stimulate the secretion of gastric juices, stimulate digestion, and support liver regeneration. Besides, they are credited with cholagogic and carminative properties. They may also increase mucus production and protect the gastric mucosa. Thanks to bactericidal properties, they help to fight Helicobacter Pylori.
Black cumin seeds have healing potential. They show hypoglycemic effect, and at the same time help to regulate lipid levels. In one study, shredded seeds were regularly given to young women, which resulted in a lowering of their glucose, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels. In another study, black cumin was used in people with type 2 diabetes. With as little as 2g administered to patients daily, significant improvement in glycemic parameters was observed, including an increase in natural insulin production.
To sum up, Black Cumin BeOrganic is a wealth of valuable substances enclosed in small inconspicuous grains. The product can be boldly called a medicinal spice. It is worth to include it in a daily diet not only because of the interesting taste but also because of the wide spectrum of health-promoting properties.
