Black Seed is fairly new to mainstream natural health, but isn’t new to herbal remedies and herbal pharmacopoeias. According to history, it was prescribed to Egyptian pharaohs after extravagant feasts to calm upset stomachs. It has been widely used in Ayurvedic medicine too. Today, science shows the oil’s compounds can be beneficial for various conditions.
