Black Seed

How does Black Seed work?

There is some scientific evidence to suggest that black seed might help boost the immune system, fight cancer, prevent pregnancy, and lessen allergic reactions by acting as an antihistimine, but there isn't enough information in humans yet.

Are there safety concerns?

Black seed, when used in small quantities, such as a flavoring for foods, appears to be safe for most people. There isn't enough information to know if larger, medicinal quantities are safe. Black seed can cause allergic rashes when applied to the skin.

Do not take black seed in excess of amounts typically found in food if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding. Black seed can affect the uterus.
