Fun Fact on Habbatus Sauda

What is Black Seed (Habbatus Sauda) ?

Actually, Black Seed is a black cumin seed that comes from an annual flowering plant called Nigella sativa from the Ranunculaceae family, a plant native to South Asia and West Asia.

In its home country, black cumin is often used as a flavoring and natural preservative for Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine. Black cumin has a distinctive bitter-spicy taste and aroma like a combination of shallot, black pepper, and oregano.

Various Benefits of Black Seed for health

The benefits of Black Seed were first investigated by Ibn Sina, a Persian scientist who is considered one of the most famous thinkers and writers of the Islamic Golden Age, in his medical journal Canon of Medicine. Ibn Sina wrote that black cumin seeds are useful as a treatment for shortness of breath, either because of asthma symptoms or because of other respiratory problems.

In traditional medicine, Black Seed is used primarily as a stimulant for breast milk production, and as a remedy for intestinal worms. Black cumin has also been used as a diuretic and muscle relaxant, as well as to boost immunity to fight infectious diseases in people with weak immune systems.

In addition, black cumin seeds have been used to treat headaches, toothaches, as well as colds and nasal congestion. Black Seed has also been used to treat red eyes (conjunctivitis), hemorrhoids, purulent wounds (abscesses), rheumatism, allergic reactions, to digestive problems — such as diarrhea, dysentery, and flatulence. Seed oil that is applied to the skin is also reported to be able to cure contact allergies due to dermatitis.

1. Improved sperm quality

Especially for men who smoke heavily, the nicotine and other toxins in cigarettes have long been known to reduce sperm's agility to swim (motility) and also affect their normal shape. Nicotine also has a negative impact on the structure of the testicular tissue. Abnormalities in sperm and testes are important risk factors for male fertility problems. A 2014 study from the University of Malaysia in the journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine reports that Black Seed Oil improves sperm quality and supports better testicular organ tissue structure.

2. Overcoming the symptoms of type 1 diabetes

Thymoquinone (TQ) is the main active compound contained in Black Seed Oil. After conducting experiments on lab rats, a 2014 study from Universiti Teknologi MARA (UTITM) Malaysia found that high doses of TQ injections could stop the development of type 1 diabetes altogether.

Another study from Zagazig University in Egypt reported that when black seed extract was mixed with other Middle Eastern spices (Myrrh, Gum olybanum, and Gum asafoetida) it was effective in lowering blood sugar levels in lab rats due to its inhibitory effect on glucose in the liver.

After eight weeks, the values ​​of systolic and diastolic blood pressure in the two groups taking Black Seed extract were found to be decreased compared to those who took the empty pill. However, including a small decrease, which is only around 1-3 mmHg.

Habbatus sauda extract pills also lower total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, while increasing good HDL cholesterol levels in some cases. However, the cholesterol balancing effect of Black Seed appeared in those with high cholesterol, the same benefits were not found in people with normal cholesterol levels.
