Aliness Black cumin seed oil is a dietary supplement containing unrefined black cumin seed oil, with a high content of thymoquinone and valuable fatty acids: oleic, linoleic, and palmitic. For user’s convenience, the oil has been placed in capsules.
Black cumin (Nigella sativa) is an annual plant naturally found in the Mediterranean Basin and grown in many other parts of the world. It is considered both a spice and a medicinal plant. The raw material are seeds – black, distinguished by a strong, spicy aroma, and sharp taste with a hint of bitterness. They contain oil consisting of approx. 85% of unsaturated fatty acids, essential oil, the main component of which is pharmacologically active thymoquinone and alkaloids, flavonoids, and saponins.
Clinical trials on the animal model suggest that black cumin seed oil may be helpful in the prevention and therapy of type 2 diabetes. Scientists have selected several effects of the substances present in black cumin seeds that constitute the mechanism of anti-diabetic action. These include the ability to reduce oxidative stress, a beneficial effect on the regeneration and proliferation of pancreatic beta cells, improving glucose metabolism, stimulating insulin secretion, and reducing intestinal glucose absorption.
Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect
The substances contained in black cumin oil are capable of scavenging free radicals and enhancing the activity of endogenous antioxidant enzymes. What is more, they may limit the production of proinflammatory mediators and inhibit lipid peroxidation. This explains the high efficacy of the oil in the treatment of joint pain and chronic inflammatory diseases such as bronchial asthma and eczema.
Black cumin seed oil inhibits the growth of pathogenic bacteria, viruses, and fungi. It works well for people struggling with candidiasis, as well as golden staph or H. pylori infections. It also exerts anthelmintic properties – it is effective, e.g. in case of tapeworm and fluke infection.
To sum up, Aliness Black Cumin Seed Oil is the best option for people who want to use the health-promoting potential of this amazing plant. Each capsule contains up to 1000 mg of unrefined, cold-pressed oil from black cumin seeds of Ethiopian origin.
Studies have shown that black cumin seed oil has negligible toxicity and no side effects are observed during therapy. Even at high therapeutic doses, the oil has a large safety margin. However, note that the oil – in high doses – shows a hypotensive and hypoglycemic effect. This will be important for people with low blood pressure and low blood sugar levels.
Most people avoid using black cumin seed oil because of its specific taste. Since the presented supplement comes in capsules, it will be a perfect solution for them. To prevent unpleasant burping, take the capsules with a meal and not 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
