The science behind

 [ Unique combination: Nigellone X Thymoquinone ]






Nigella oil is the concentrated extract of the Nigella Sativa Superseed. It contains over 100 chemical compounds and essential fatty acids in addition to Thymoquinone – crystalline nigellone, sitosterol, myristic acid, palmitic acid, oleic acid, linoleic acid, proteins, vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C as well as minerals, iron, copper and zinc.

This is exactly why Nigella is referred to as a so-called Superseed possessing a truly extraordinary wealth, dense concentration, and unique combination of potent volatile oils and micronutrients. The science behind Nigella is nothing less than stunning.

Nigella Sativa itself is a flowering plant found in parts of North Africa, Southwest Asia, and Southern Europe. Its fruit is a capsule composed of follicles; each containing small triangular black seeds commonly known as Nigella, Kalonji or just Black Seed. In Arabic it is also referred to as the Blessed Seed.


Well, the Nigella seed hides an astonishing secret: it is the only place in the known Universe where one finds a unique combination of Nigellone and a phytochemical compound known as Thymoquinone. Thymoquinone is scientifically proven to possess extraordinarily potent anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. 

Thymoquinone is being researched for its ability to fight tumors and cancer, showing very powerful anti-metastatic and anti-angiogenic properties in clinical studies. Beyond cancer, Nigella is also found to be beneficial in treatments of for example Diabetes, Arthritis, Hypertension and Asthma. Thymoquinone is clearly not your average anti-oxidant...




 [ Clinically proven to repair and regenerate skin and hair ]






Clinical evidence is now also proving the uniqueness of the Nigella Sativa Superseed in treating and nourishing skin and hair. Its anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory properties fight Acne symptoms and its nutritive qualities help in repairing and regenerating damaged skin and hair. Being naturally anti-fungal, Nigella battles dermatophytes, which cause skin, scalp and nail infections along with consequent lesions and premature aging of the skin.

Clinical trials prove high potency Nigella oil to be at least as effective as conventional steroid cream in reducing Eczema symptoms and prove the case for topical application of Nigella oil for immunoregulation, antihistaminic effects and anti-proliferation of Psoriasis cells.
