Purely Wild Raw black seed, also known as Nigella sativa, is a plant native to Asia and the Middle East. It has been used for thousands of years for its medicinal properties and is considered a natural remedy for many ailments. Dr. Cass Ingram, founder of Purely Wild Natural, used to quote the Prophet Muhammad who said "Black seed cures everything but death". He would recommended that people take 1 or 2 tbsp per day of the Mediterranean grown black seed. Specifically, golden colored black seed oil from Turkey or Egypt. Dr. Ingram wrote the books "The Black Seed Miracle" and "The Health Benefits of Raw Black Seed". Here are some of the potential benefits of black seed:
Anti-inflammatory: Black seed contains compounds that have anti-inflammatory properties, making it useful for reducing inflammation in the body. It has been used to alleviate symptoms of conditions such as arthritis and asthma.
Antioxidant: Black seed is rich in antioxidants, which can help protect the body from damage caused by free radicals. This can help prevent chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
Immune support: Black seed has been shown to have immune-boosting properties, making it useful for preventing and treating infections. It can also help reduce the severity of symptoms of colds and flu.
Digestive health: Black seed has been used traditionally to improve digestion and alleviate symptoms of digestive issues such as bloating, gas, and diarrhea.
Skin health: Black seed oil can be used topically to help treat skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. It has also been shown to have anti-aging properties, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Diabetes management: Black seed has been shown to help regulate blood sugar levels, making it useful for managing diabetes. It can also help improve insulin sensitivity.
Cardiovascular health: Black seed has been shown to have beneficial effects on cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and other factors that contribute to cardiovascular disease.

Truly a gift from above found in nature's pharmacy, black seed is a versatile and natural remedy with many potential health benefits.
However, it's important to use black seed with caution, as high doses may have negative side effects, especially the low cost factory farmed varieties.
It's also important to talk to your healthcare provider before using black seed, especially if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have any underlying health conditions.*
