Health Logics is proud to bring you their renowned quality of black seed oil sourced from the seeds of nigella sativa a native plant from Asia. Black seed is often referred to as Roman coriander, black caraway, black sesame, onion seed, kalonji oil, and black cumin. Today it is better known as black seed which accurately describes its appearance.

The benefits of black seed oil have been recognized since ancient times. The earliest record of it's use comes from Egypt. Black seed oil was actually found in Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun's tomb over 3,000 years ago. In certain cultures, black seed is known as the "seed of blessing".

Black seed is a rich source of various natural and health promoting phytochemicals, many of which have yet to be elucidated. The distinctive aromatic oil of black seeds consists of over 70% unsaturated fatty acids (linoleic acid, oleic acid, gamma linoleic acid, eicodadienoic acid, and dihomolinoleic acid) and less than 30% of saturated fatty acids including phytosterols. The  antioxidant lipids found in black seed are nigellone and thymoquinone, which have been researched for their digestive and respiratory health promoting properties. Black seed oil also has healthy immune response-promoting properties.

Black seed (Nigella sativa) oil is 35% more concentrated than raw black cumin seeds. Black seed oil is rich in essential fatty acids (EFAs). The EFAs consist of alpha-Linolenic acid (omega-3) and Linoleic acid (omega-6), which are substances that cannot be manufactured by the body, and thus must be consumed through high-EFA foods or supplements. EFAs are essential to good health. Health Logics Black Cumin Seed Oil is cold pressed and hexane free.
