There has been growing interest in natural compounds relating to anti-cancer properties because they are known to be less-toxic to healthy cells and are available in a readily digestible form. There is a wide consensus in cancer research that a well studied ‘seed extract‘ has proven anti-cancer activity.
Many researchers have provided a vast amount of evidence for the chemo-preventive or chemotherapeutic activity of one particular substance called ‘Thymoquinone’ (TQ), an active component of Nigella Stavia, also known as Black Cumin Seed, which is extracted and cold pressed into a form best known as ‘Black Seed Oil‘.
‘Thymoquinone modulates NINE of the TEN hallmarks of cancer!!‘
TQ has been intensively investigated over many years, with numerous studies showing TQ to have a wide spectrum of favorable anti-cancer effects, the most prominent being; it’s antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, hepatoprotective, antimutagenic, and antitumor activities.
N. Sativa seed extract TQ has also shown a wide spectrum of biological activities when used as an adjunctive thereapy, by reducing the toxicity of conventional chemotherapeutic regimes and has even been shown to enhance the effects of some of these cancer drugs.
‘There is evidence that TQ induces p53-independent Apoptosis (Programmed Cell Death)’
In a 2012 study in India, scientists investigated the liquid extracted from black seeds and it’s protective potential in testing rodents undergoing radiation exposure, with positive results. They now propose it could be useful for cancer patients who receive radiation treatment, notably to protect against oxidative stress in normal tissues and to mitigate the other unwanted side effects of radiation.
N. Stavia seed extract has been around for some 50 years, since the constituent ‘Thymoquinone’ was isolated from this little black seed, with more and more people now becoming aware of it’s powerful healing properties. Black seed oil has been used as a traditional medicine for centuries and ‘studies have since reconfirmed the anti-cancer properties of this safe and natural seed oil’.
As TQ comes from nature, we can be reassured in the knowledge that black seed oil will remain a cost effective ‘adjunctive therapy‘ and readily accessible to anyone choosing additional therapeutic support!!
