Aliness Black cumin seed oil is a dietary supplement that contains cold-pressed black cumin seed oil, encapsulated in convenient capsules.
Aliness Black cumin seed oil is distinguished by excellent quality. For the production of this product, black cumin seeds from Ethiopia were used. The oil resulting from seed pressing is unrefined; it contains all the valuable ingredients naturally found in the plant, including biologically active thymoquinone and essential fatty acids: oleic, linoleic and palmitic.
The oil has an intense taste and aroma, however, since it has been encapsulated in easy-to-swallow capsules, the supplementation is comfortable and trouble-free even for people who do not like the characteristic aftertaste of black cumin.
Black cumin (Nigella sativa) belongs to the spice plants. It has a strong, spicy aroma and is slightly bitter. The seeds of black cumin are used for medicinal purposes. They are an excellent source of unsaturated fatty acids, phospholipids, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. They also contain valuable pharmacologically active ingredients such as sterols, alkaloids, and triterpene saponins. Scientists suggest that quinone compounds, especially thymoquinone, are responsible for most of the proven therapeutic effects of the plant.
Black cumin oil has strong antimicrobial properties. It destroys pathogenic Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, inhibits virus replication and limits the growth of pathogenic fungi. It is recommended for people struggling with H. pylori infection and candidiasis caused by Candida albicans. It may also support the fight against parasites.
Black cumin oil exerts anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Studies have shown that the thymoquinone present in the seeds of the plant reduces the activity of NK-kB transcription factor and the IL-1 and IL-2 inflammatory cytokines. It also inhibits the production of prostaglandin PGE2. Besides, it promotes the expression of endogenous antioxidant enzymes (SOD, GPX) and contributes to the reduction of oxidative stress.
To sum up, Aliness Black cumin seed oil is a preparation with a wide spectrum of health-promoting properties. It is especially recommended for people struggling with infections, parasites, and chronic inflammation.
The preparation is based on the natural raw material of plant origin and is safe even when used for a longer period. Since large doses of black cumin seed oil exert a hypotensive and hypoglycemic effect, caution should only be exercised by people with low blood pressure and low glucose. Besides, they may also slow down blood clotting in some people, so if you have a surgery arranged, discontinue the supplementation about 2 weeks before.
It is worth taking the supplement with a meal to prevent unpleasant burping – which often occurs when used on an empty stomach.

Black cumin seed oil – a source of essential unsaturated fatty acids enriched with other compounds health-promoting properties, such as monoterpenols and cineol. It is used both as a dietary supplement and natural cosmetic for topical application.
As a source of EFAs, black cumin seed oil is a convenient way to increase their intake which is often insufficient. Adequate dietary intake of EFAs is of key importance for maintaining health, especially of the cardiovascular system. It is said to be one of the main forms of cardiovascular prevention. In addition, it supports healthy neurological function. EFAs participate also in the regulation of the immune response.
When black cumin seed is used topically, it shows antibacterial and antifungal properties. It is used to relieve different allergic reactions. It has a beneficial effect on the skin and boosts its nourishment. The only aspect which discourages many individuals from using it as a cosmetic is its distinctive smell.
Oleic acid - mono-saturated Omega 9 fatty acid, occurring in the natural products of plant origin (almonds, olive oil) and animal origin (hen egg yolk, fats derived from fish). As representative of the most common fatty acids present in the diet can be substituted for some of the saturated fatty acids and consequently have a positive effect on the blood lipid profile. In the diet supplementation it is a complementation unsaturated fatty acids.
Omega 9 is selected from monounsaturated fatty acids in which the last carbon bond is at the end of the ninth carbon atom. It does not include the essential fatty acids. It is converted in the body of the saturated fatty acids. The group Omega 9 are: oleic acid (plant origin: canola oil, olive oil, almonds), erucic acid and palmitoleic acid. These acids do not have very high biological activity but may have prophylaxis influence on cardiovascular disease and obesity.
On the market of dietary supplements containing no mono-preparation supplements. Omega 9 is as an additive to a fatty acid supplements providing essential fatty acids. Used in supplements for athletes (e.g. protein or protein-carbohydrate). Available for purchase at: www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: the lack of strict standards of daily consumption. Customary, recommend in sports diet should be from 10 to 15% of calorie diet.
Linoleic acid, the unsaturated Omega 6 fatty acid, is not intracorporeal synthesized, it is supplied in foods of plant origin (including sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, soybeans, hazelnuts, the seeds of grapes, etc.) and in foods of animal origin. It is involved in the biosynthesis of arachidonic acid needed for the production of prostaglandins. In a normal diet using the above food component it is sufficient and does not require support supplementation. Rarely used in dietary supplements, usually combined with EPA, DHA and ALA; It is a component of supplements containing essential fatty acids (EFAs), often in combination with vitamin E, which is protecting the fatty acids from oxidation. It is recommended to to take linoleic acid in proportion to the Omega 3 acids (in the range between of 1: 1 to 1: 5). As a component of cell membranes is responsible for the condition of the skin, hair loss, healing of cuts and small wounds. Studies confirm its effect on reducing the risk of heart disease. Preparations available at www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: the most important is to keep the balance between Omega 3 and Omega 6 acids. When proportions are kept, the quantity is not significant.
Omega 6 (n-6) is a group of unsaturated fatty acids (linoleic acid [atomic no. - present in plant products]). Number 6 indicates that the last double bond in the carbon chain is placed at the sixth carbon from the end. Belongs to the EFA. The group of unsaturated fatty acids include omega-6 GLA (gamma-linolenic acid, among others, present in evening primrose oil), ARA (arachidonic acid, peanut and food products of animal origin). The consultation of unsaturated fatty acids from the group of omega-6 should be proportional to the intake of Omega 3 in a ratio of 1: 1 to 6: 1. When applying so called western diet, rarely there is a need of supplementation with fatty acids Omega 6 (gamma-linolenic acid is applicable). They are an important component of cell membranes and are precursors of prostaglandins. Essential fatty acids Omega 6 have high biological activity: are involved in the synthesis of organic compounds which reduces inflammatory and hormones possibilities. They are recommended in the diet physically active people in small quantities as a food supplement.
In the supplements are used complexes of unsaturated fatty acids containing in suitable proportions Omega 3 and 6. In the sports supplementation, arachidonic acid (ARA) is used, the action of which increases muscle anabolism and increased exercise capacity (strength and endurance). Available in multiple formulations, of which full range is available for purchase at: www.muscle-zone.pl
Often they occur in combination supplements containing both omega 3 and omega 6, in suitable proportions. In the sports supplementation, arachidonic acid deserves special attention, which is administered in the form of supplements, potentiated muscle anabolism and increased the exercise capacity, such as muscle strength. There are several multicomponent formulations on the market that contain this compound.
Dosage of usually supplements recommended in sports.
Depending on the supply from the diet and intake of Omega-3, a dose is 1-4 g / 24h
Palmitic acid is an unsaturated fatty acid having 16 carbon atoms. Naturally it is present in animal fats, in an amount of about half of the total fat content. It is also in processed vegetable products (e.g. palm oil, coconut butter, etc.). Overdose can cause adverse changes in the lipid profile, causing a high increase in cholesterol. In the sports supplementation it is rarely used as a component of dietary and nutritional supplements. Available at the www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: no consumption standards
