According to recent studies, black cumin seed oil (nigella sativa) has the ability to inhibit cancer cell activity and is a potential cancer cure.
This oil and its extract called thymoquinone have exhibited potent anti-cancer activity when faced against liver, pancreatic, cervical, breast, stomach, colon and prostate cancer, as well as against lymphoma and melanoma. However, the studies have so far been done only on animals, and there’s been no advance in human clinical trials yet.
And, although several studies have showed what the black cumin seeds oil can do, modern medicine still doesn’t recognize it. Continue reading the article to learn more about why there are no human clinical trials and why Big Pharma is trying to subdue the use of the oil.
According to two studies conducted in China and Saudi Arabia in 2011 which reviewed literature on the use of the oil as a cancer treatment, the black cumin seed oil has been used as a natural cancer remedy for millennia. The oil and its extract have also been used against cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, asthma, kidney disease and more.
The scientists also noted that the mechanism behind the anti-cancer properties of the black cumin seed oil is not understood. Some think that it’s all due to the antioxidant effects of thymoquinone and its ability to reinforce the immune system, but this claim hasn’t been supported by scientific evidence. Studies have shown that the oil induces apoptosis in cancer cells besides controlling the Apk pathway, which means that it controls cell survival throughout the body. And, although the oil has been used for millennia, modern medicine has only learned about it in the past few decades.
