5 ‘Life-Saving’ Reasons to Consume Black Cumin Daily –
And Allow For Miraculous Living…
1) POTENT ENOUGH TO JUMPSTART THE IMMUNE SYSTEM – HELPING WITH EVEN THE NASTIEST OF THREATS LIKE CANCER & HIV
Dr. Gary Null stated – “every time you take black cumin you are stimulating your immune system to fight on your behalf and increase natural killer cells.” Thus, referring to its ability to improve the immune system, and help treat even the most impossible invaders like cancer and HIV, successfully.
Black Cumin does this by helping to stimulate the production of bone marrow and cells of the immune system. It increases the production of interferon, protects normal cells from the damaging effects of harmful invaders, helps destroy tumor cells and increases the number of antibody producing B cells within us.
In turn, Black Cumin supports the entire body. Its immune-building properties and active compounds have been proven to help fight a never-ending list of diseases and autoimmune disorders – via the boosting of the body’s immune cell production, bone marrow, and natural interferon. Even for people in the best state of health, consuming Black Cumin regularly – have greatly increased their vitality and well-being!
2) WOMAN REPORTS SHE WAS CURED OF STAGE 3 CANCER
A woman in Yemen, suffering of stage 3 cancer – longed for natural treatment. She was advised to take Black Cumin seeds with honey three times a day, in addition to garlic and honey.
After three months, her cancer completely disappeared. The woman continued consumption of these nutrient foods even after illness had diminished.
And not only has Black Cumin demonstrated to help improve a variety of Cancer situations like hers, but researchers at the Cancer Immuno-Biology Laboratory in South Carolina also found – Black Cumin helps stimulate the activity of neutrophil granulocytes – the most abundant type of white blood cell in the body. These neutrophils target cancer cells before they multiply, and help eliminate them before they can develop into harmful tumors.
3) THE ‘DEADLIEST’ FORM OF CANCER – DESTROYED BY BLACK CUMIN
Nigella Sativa has been a well-documented beneficial supplement for many forms of cancer, including pancreatic cancer.
Right now, pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths in America, because the survival rate after five years of conventional cancer treatment is sadly, only 4 percent.
A study conducted at Kimmel Cancer Center, at Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia – revealed that Nigella Sativa (Black Cumin) DESTROYED pancreatic cancer cells – with an incredible 80 percent cancer tumor cell death! It also showed to stop the gene transcription process so cancer cells can’t replicate!
The magic ingredient in Nigella Sativa appears to be thymoquinone. Researchers believe thymoquinone holds promise as a preventative strategy both for patients who have already gone through surgery and chemotherapy, as well as a promising preventative measure – especially for those genetically prone.
4) FOLLOW YOUR HEART – YOU’LL NEED IT
The utmost vitality doesn’t mean anything if you don’t maintain a HEALTHY HEART. Black Cumin benefits the heart and Cardiovascular system in a variety of impressive ways…
Rich unsaturated omega 6 & 9 acids and phytosterols help fortify and increase the elasticity of blood vessel walls, decrease capillary fragility and permeability, prevents thrombus formation, and decrease arterial pressure.
It also assists in the decrease of blood cholesterol – preventing formation of dangerous atherosclerotic plaque, as well as preventing development of inflammatory elements in the overall cardiovascular system. Additionally, Black Cumin has been used to treat tachycardia, bradycardia, hypotension, hypertension, as well as alternative heart diseases.
5) PROTECTION AGAINST ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANT “SUPER BUGS” – ALREADY THREATENING OUR FUTURE
In 1989, an article about phenomenal properties of Black Cumin was published in the Pakistani Medical Journal.
Then in 1992, research of the antibacterial properties of Black Cumin – in comparison with strong antibiotics was carried out in the medical department of the university in Dhaka, in Bangladesh. The facts were very facsinating – Black Cumin Oil demonstrated itself as a MORE EFFICIENT remedy against certain types of bacteria including those which most strongly resist antibiotic drugs.

The Best Way To Consume Black Cumin:
The “OIL” – is the most effective form to consume Black Cumin because the oil is more concentrated than whole seeds unpressed, and is more readily assimilated. Also, because of it’s potent, absorbable concentration – only 1 teaspoon is needed per dose.
Most health experts and natural physicians recommend taking 1 teaspoon of the oil two times per day for therapeutic effects, on an empty stomach/before meals and bedtime. Or once per day, for a healthy maintenance dose or as a preventative measure.
Black Cumin can have sedative effects for some though, and because the oils have bile-expelling characteristics, in my opinion, it is best taken in the evening – unless utilizing 2x per day for therapeutic benefits. You can take the oil on its own, mixed in water or juice (*great with raw honey), or can be added to warm tea – like herbal chai, etc.
Many people have also added a small amount to their face & body creams, with phenomenal results. Also beneficial topically for burns, psoriasis and alternative skin disorders.
Mix with honey and/or garlic for a great tonic for effective immunity-boosting during cold and flu season.
Black Cumin should be taken daily as a preventative measure for all illness, and life-long vitality.
