The benefits of black seed oil need no introduction. The world is finally beginning to catch on. History and science can attest to the medicinal effects of this out-of-this-world plant called Nigella Sativa (The plant black seed oil comes from).
Suppose all the excitement about black seed oil (BSO) being able to cure or treat hundreds of ailments is fantasy. In that case, you must ask yourself why modern scientists throughout the world have been studying it extensively for the last fifty years.
I was one of the first to pioneer that black seed oil can kill the coronavirus. On March 27, 2020, I posted my findings on how I believed black seed oil could defeat COVID-19. (See my article, “Black Seed Oil (Nigella Sativa) Can Kill The Coronavirus“). See also, “Make Your Own Coronavirus Antiviral,” “Can Black Seed Oil Really Fight COVID-19?”
In the months that followed, scientists have discovered (2021 Review) that N. Sativa can fight the coronavirus.
Let’s discuss the excellent benefits of black seed oil with new studies from 2021.
What Makes Black Seed Oil So Essential For Health?
Black seed oil contains many compounds essential for health that are not found collectively in any other natural source.
Here are some of the components:
- thymoquinone (42.3–56.1%)
- p-cymene (33–38%)
- carvacrol (1.3–1.4%)
- dehydro-sabina ketone(4.4–4.5%)
- α-thujene (6%)
- camphene (11%)
- α-pinene (1.11%)
- β-pinene (7%)
- sabinene (1%)
- α-phellandrene (0.45%)
- β-myrcene (0.21%)
- γ-terpinene (5.12%)
- limonene (0.13%)
- camphor (1%)
- terpinolene (0.23%)
- thymol (10.1%)
- carvone (0.32%)
- t-anethol (1–4%)
- 4-terpineol (2–7%)
- longicyclene (0.9%)
In one form or another, these compounds all contribute to the potent health benefits of black seed oil.
The top compound is thymoquinone, which makes up from about 42% to 56% of all the constituents. It is also the most studied by scientists.
Interestingly, unlike other oils, BSO is high in protein, dietary fiber, and many micronutrients, including vitamins and minerals.
BSO is exceptionally high in,
These four minerals are vital electrolytes that your body loses when it sweats. They assist your muscle functions, so you don’t cramp up. They are needed when you do any exercise and mainly when you are ill.
Black seed oil can protect you in more ways than can be imagined.
Two teaspoons per day are like taking a natural vitamin and mineral supplement, however much more beneficial for your body due to the other powerful constituents it contains.
What Are The Benefits Of Black Seed Oil?
A recent scientific review, published in April 2021, updated and reminded the world of how vital N. Sativa is for human health and how black seed oil benefits and assists the human body against many diseases and ailments.
Some of the benefits of black seed oil described by the review were:
Halitosis (Bad Breath)
They recommend that you take a half teaspoon of black seeds and chew on them twice per day. It is claimed that it will cure you of bad breath within one month. (Pages 345-346)

Can Inhibit COVID-19
A study published in March 2021 described particular compounds found in BSO that can stop a person from getting infected with the coronavirus.
Researchers concluded that three specific compounds could treat and protect you from COVID-19. They were:
- caryophyllene oxide
Take a look at this chart and see the other compounds that the scientists extracted from BSO. There is no other natural product in existence that collectively contains these beneficial compounds.
And for many of the compounds, it is still unknown what kind of potential benefits they may have on the human body.

The unsaturated fatty acids found in BSO, where the human body cannot produce some, help maintain and repair your immune system.

The benefits of black seed oil appear to be countless. Digesting a teaspoon of BSO is like swallowing a nuclear health bomb that destroys any potential disease lurking anywhere in your body.
There are several side effects that you need to be aware of.
- If you are already suffering from hypotension (low blood pressure), you should speak to your medical provider before taking BSO. It has the potential to lower your blood pressure even further.
