Black cumin (Latin: Nigella sativa)
Black cumin (Nigella sativa) is a widely used medicinal plant with a history of at least a thousand years. The annual herb can reach a height of 30 to 60 cm and belongs to the buttercup family (Ranunculaceae). The black cumin is neither related to cumin nor caraway.
The plant has bluish to purple or white flowers. The fruit is large and contains many small seeds. As soon as the fruit has ripened, it opens. The seeds, which it contains, are then exposed to light and air turn black.
Nigella sativa contains many active ingredients, including thymoquinone, various alkaloids (including nigellicines and nigelledine), saponin (alpha-hederin) and flavonoids. Black cumin probably owes a large part of its special effect to the thymoquinones it contains..

Used for thousands of years
Both Hippocrates and Dioscorides have already described the effects of this special herb. The herb is already mentioned in the "Canon of Medicines" (Al-Qanun fi al-Tibb) by the Persian scientist Avicenna (Ibn Sina) from the 11th century. In the middle Ages, this book was one of the standard works for doctors in Europe, alongside Galenus.
Incidentally, love for the special effectiveness of black cumin has not waned: the herb currently has five separate FDA patents in the United States and one in the United Kingdom.
Traditional use of black cumin in folk medicine
Nigella sativa seeds have traditionally been used for centuries in Southeast Asia and the Middle East. They support healthy airways, weight management and digestion. The seeds have a positive effect on liver and kidney function and have a favorable influence on the signs of aging and the general mental resilience.
Due to the many uses, Nigella sativa was given the Arabic title "Habbatul Barakah", which means "the seed of blessing". In addition, the herb is a natural remedy on lists of various respected healing arts. Among them: Tibb-e-Nabavi (Prophet Mohammed), Unani Tebb and Ayurveda.

The usage of medicinal plants
Indigenous medical systems and folk medicine have been using medicinal plants for centuries to cure diseases or promote health. In addition, they are also used in the manufacture of herbal medicines, as they are considered safe compared to modern allopathic medicines. In addition, medicinal plants can be of great interest to researchers, since relatively few plant species have been thoroughly examined for their medicinal properties, mechanisms of action, safety and toxicology.
