What is Nigella Sativa?
Black seeds, also known as Nigella sativa, black cumin, kalonji seeds and haba al-barakah (Arabic phrase) have been used by people for thousands of years. Some associate black caraway with black seeds and they come from two different plants. Kalonji seeds are found in India and haba al-barakah is an Arabic word and used in the Middle East mainly. Black seeds are commonly used in the kitchen also in many recipes.
Nigella sativa (black seeds), an annual flowering plant that grows to 20-30cm tall, is native to Asia and the Middle East. The flowers of this plant are very delicate and pale colored and white. The seeds are used in Middle Eastern cooking, such as in their local breads. The seeds are also used by thousands for their natural healing abilities.
WHICH IS BETTER - SEED OR OIL
This is a question I get quite a bit. They ask me what do I suggest. If you buy the seeds, there are more than 5 cups in one pound. In each cup there is approximately 212 capsules too. So many will look at the seeds as being the best buy. Not true.
For each teaspoon of oil that is needed, you will need 2.5 teaspoons of seeds. One capsule holds 1/4 teaspoon of seeds, so you will need to take 10 capsules to equal one teaspoon of oil. Now for cancer patients they need 7.5 teaspoons of powder or 30 capsules per day. In this case, I would say hands down the oil is better and more economical.
The 100ml has approximately 19 teaspoons and the 500ml has 96 teaspoons of oil. So for a cancer patient they will need a 500ml bottle or 5 glass jars. It takes approximately 10 days for orders to arrive in the US and 14 days international. So make sure to order enough oil for your condition. My ground and heated seeds come from Jordan and there is a 7 day processing and a 3 week shipping time.
What do I use? I use both. I continually have a jar of black seed honey ready and prepared and I take the oil daily. For cancer patients we are recommending saffron now and you can purchase the saffron oil here and add it to your 500ml black seed oil. Just shake it well to mix. If you are on a cancer protocol, you do not need seeds EXCEPT to cook with. I have a shaker on my stove that contains ground black seeds and I add them to everything I cook with.
Remember More is not BETTER. Take the right prescription as prescribed for your illness. If you are pregnant do not take black seeds or the oil and if you are facing a surgery, stop the oil and seeds two weeks prior to the surgery. The maximum oil you should take in one day is 1 tablespoon.
HOW TO PROPERLY HEAT SEEDS
New research shows that properly heated seeds are best for cancer treatment compared to cold pressed oils that do not have properly heated seeds prior to pressing. I know of no oil that fits in that category. However the research was done in comparison with regular oils. It is my utmost belief that high quality oils would be better for the cancer patient due to the ease of use. Dosage size is 3 teaspoons per day for cancer and if you use seeds you need 7.5 teaspoons. Most cancer patients cannot take that much and much less in capsule form. Normal capsules hold 1/4 teaspoon and so you would need 30 capsules a day.
Procedure for seeds
Take a minimal amount of seeds to begin with (1 pound) and place in a stainless steel pan. Shake the pan, so the seeds are evenly spread. Turn the oven on no more than 140 degrees Centigrade. Put the time for 12 minutes. After cooking, do not open the door and allow the seeds to stay in the hot oven for 1 hour. AFter 1 hour, open the door and taste the seeds to see if they are bland and not tart.
Normally you need to do this 2 to 3 times, depending on the seeds. Once the seeds are finished baking and cooled, grind them in a coffee grinder. I use the Krups one pictured.
New Research Shows That Roasted Seeds are twice as powerful as regular black seed oils in fighting cancer. Know what you are buying.
