Life Extension Black Cumin Seeds Oil is a dietary supplement containing organic black cumin seed oil closed in comfortable softgels, fortified with a patented curcumin extract BCM-95® Bio-Curcumin®, which is the only one containing documented 7 times larger assimilability of curcumin than ordinary extracts.
The manufacturer guarantees that highest purity and quality of the material used for production. Tymocid™ is obtained from organic plants in a patented, proprietary process of cold-pressing. Subjected to detailed control on every stage of production, the extraction of black cumin seed oil grants its biological activity and the full range of components responsible for its therapeutic effects. The product is standardised to the content of thymoquinone and essential fatty acids.
The preparation exhibits a very wide range of healthy effects and is recommended particularly for improving immunity and protecting the organism from harmful microorganisms. Thanks to its strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, it can be used for preventing diseases of affluence (atherosclerosis, diabetes, neoplastic diseases).
Black cumin Tymocid™ (Nigella sativa), also known as black-caraway, is a rather popular spice with an intense, spicy aroma and a slightly bitter taste. The part used most often in medicine are its seeds. A particularly valuable part of the plant is its cold-pressed oil.
Black cumin seed oil is characterised by an interesting phytochemical composition. As much as 85 per cent of its content are unsaturated fatty acids: linolic, oleic and the rare eicosadienoic acid. Moreover, it contains valuable phospholipids (phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylserine, and phosphatidylinositol) and sterols. The seeds of black cumin contain saponins, alkaloids, proteins with a fantastic amino acid profile, vitamins and minerals as well. The unique thymoquinone and its derivatives are believed to be the most important biologically active component.
Curcumin Bio-Curcumin® – a substance exhibiting remarkable activity in the human biological environment; it is found in significant amounts in the popular spice known as turmeric; its properties have recently stunned the academic community all over the world, except for the representatives of Ayurvedic medicine, who have been using it for as long as 3,000 years. Many tests and experiments conducted over the years have confirmed its ability to reduce inflammations, enhance the functioning of the intestines and the joints, protect brain cells from neurotoxins and reduce oxidative stress.
Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity
A balanced inflammatory response of the organism, as well as the harmony between the process of oxidation and reduction are crucial for maintaining good health. Black cumin seed oil exhibits remarkable efficacy in both fields.
Thymoquinone contained in black cumin oil reduces the amount of the main compounds that induce inflammations (interleukine 1, interleukine 6, TNF-alpha, prostaglandins), thanks to which the intensity of the inflammation is reduced.
Thymoquinone also inhibits oxidative stress and prevents lipid peroxidation. It stimulates the activity of superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione peroxidase, that is key antioxidant enzymes essential for fighting excess free radicals.
Black cumin oil strengthens the immune system and activates natural defence mechanisms of the organism. It stimulates the activity of macrophages, T lymphocytes and NK cells (natural killers). It increases the synthesis of cytokines responsible for the growth and differentiation of the main cells of the immune system.
Black cumin seeds are characterised by strong antimicrobial, antiviral and antifungal properties.
Thymoquinone and its derivatives are particularly active in that area. They inhibit the development of both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, and their power is comparable with that of antibiotics: ampicillin and erythromycin. What’s more, they inhibit the replication of viruses. They also prevent the growth of fungi in the organism, and eliminate the colonies of Candida albicans responsible for candidiasis.
Black cumin oil can constitute an aid or even an alternative for standard antibiotic therapy against two popular and extremely problematic bacterial strains: Staphylococcus aureus and Helicobater pylori. Clinical tests have proven that quinonic components contained in black cumin oil even eliminate MRSA (methicyllin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus). Its efficacy against Helicobacter pylori is comparable with that of the so-called triple therapy with the use of amoxicillin and metronidazole.
Support for the digestive system
Black cumin oil improves digestion and promotes the health of the digestive system. It regulates the secretion of gastric acid and prevents ulcers. EFAs (essential fatty acids) contained in black cumin oil stimulate the regeneration of intestinal and gastric mucous membranes and protect them from damage. Thymoquinone exhibits hepatoprotective properties – it protects the liver from the toxic activity of heavy metals and stops the process of its fibrosis.
Black cumin oil can be used for fighting parasites of the gastrointestinal tract; it proves very efficient in the case of tapeworms and flukes. It inhibits their development and growth, and eliminates the possibility of mature representatives to lay eggs.
Black cumin oil helps to reduce too high blood glucose levels. It stimulates the secretion of insulin increasing its amount in the pancreatic beta-cells, regenerates pancreatic cells and maintains their integrity. Moreover, it enhances peripheral glucose metabolism and reduces its absorption in the bowel.
Some tests conducted on rodents compared the activity of black cumin oil with metformin – a standard drug used in diabetes treatment. They proved that black cumin normalises high blood sugar with similar effects, although a little slower.
Consuming black cumin seed oil increases the level of tryptophan in the brain. Tryptophan is an amino acid essential for serotonin production whose deficiency causes, among other symptoms, despondency. Moreover, thymoquinone contained in black cumin oil regulates the concentration of GABA in the organism, thanks to which it eliminates anxiety. Tests in which adolescents participated demonstrated that 4 weeks of regular supplementation with 500 mg of black cumin oil resulted in an improvement of the mood and alleviated anxiety.
To sum up, Black Cumin Seeds Oil is a versatile, healthy preparation for strengthening the organism. The power of its effects is comparable with those of synthetic antibiotics, it is safe for the organism and does not cause side effects. It can be used both during an infection and preventively in the periods of increased influenza activity. The comfortable form of softgels is a perfect solution for those who want to benefit from black cumin’s beneficial properties but are not fond of the smell and taste of the popular spice.
The healthy properties of black cumin are invaluable; however, many people don’t like its typical smell and taste very much. Softgels with black cumin oil are the best solution, and when fortified with curcumin, they exhibit much stronger activity in the organism.
When taken on an empty stomach, the preparation may cause unpleasant symptoms in the form of burping. In order to avoid that, take the supplement with a meal.

Essential oils occur in all plants, in various amounts. These are complicated compounds not fully identified, each containing hundreds of components in microscopic amounts. They are found in all parts of the plant: the root, flowers, leaves, stems and fruits. On the amount, composition and structure depend not only on the aromatic, but also therapeutic properties. They work mainly by inhalation , getting into the bloodstream and externally (through the skin while rubbing into the body, bath or compress). They show the highest activity in herbal infusions. Their action is enhanced by stabilizing in the laboratory. They should be used only under medical supervision, as they can cause allergies. They are used to treat patients with headaches, insomnia, lack of concentration, flu, catarrh, cold. The use of essential oils in herbal spices stimulates the digestive system (stimulates appetite and increases the secretion of gastric juices), allowing for better absorption of food. Also used in the production of cosmetics. Available at: www.muscle-zone.pl
