Ever wonder why your doctor will not tell you garlic, bitter cola and ginger cures cattarrh and cough. It is the same reason they will continue to treat CORONAVIRUS with Western medicine.

Not many people who knew about Black Seed, especially its oil were taken back months ago when Governor Seyi Makinde revealed what he took to combat Coronavirus. Black Seed with honey is laced with potential immune boosting ingredients that can fight any  bacteria or virus.

Not only that, it’s ability to combat cattarrh and cough as well as congestion of the nasal system makes it a powerful tool to prevent Coronavirus from degenerating to the stage in which patients will need ventilators.

Unknown to many, Makinde was not the first to use the oil with other things like garlic and onions to cure Coronavirus. Others used it. While some were still saying the Oyo Governor really didn’t have the disease, KANO Health Commissioner also publicly confirmed the potency of the oil, used with the same garlic and onion as well as honey among other things.

According to internet sources, ‘Black seed oil is extracted from the seeds of Nigella sativa, a plant native to southwest Asia. The black seeds are slightly bitter and sometimes used as a flavoring or spice in Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine. The amber-hued oil is also used in cooking and is said to offer a range of health benefits. One of the key components of black seed oil is thymoquinone, a compound with antioxidant properties.

Black seed oil has a long history of use dating back over 2000 years. According to some sources it was discovered in the tomb of King Tut. The oil is used by some for the treatment of conditions including asthma, diabetes, hypertension, weight loss, and other conditions. There is scientific evidence to support some, but not all, uses for black seed oil.

Black seed oil is alsoknown by several names including:

  • Black cumin seed oil
  • Kalonji oil
  • Nigella sativa oil

Health Benefits

Although research on the health effects of black seed oil is fairly limited, there’s some evidence that it may offer certain benefits. Here’s a look at several key findings from available studies

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Black seed oil may aid in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, according to a small study published in Immunological Investigations in 2016.1 For the study, 43 women with mild-to-moderate rheumatoid arthritis took black seed oil capsules or a placebo every day for one month.

The study results showed that treatment with black seed oil led to a reduction in arthritis symptoms (as assessed by the DAS-28 rating scale), blood levels of inflammatory markers, and the number of swollen joints.

Nasal Inflammation

Black seed oil shows promise in the treatment of allergies. In a 2011 study published in the American Journal of Otolaryngology, for instance, black seed oil was found to reduce the presence of nasal congestion and itching, runny nose, and sneezing after two weeks.

Another report published in 2018 analyzed data to determine if black seed oil could help in the treatment of sinusitis. Study authors concluded that the oil has therapeutic potential in the treatment of the condition due to its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antihistaminic, immune-modulator, antimicrobial, and analgesic effects.


Black seed oil may be of some benefit to people with diabetes, according to a review published in Complementary Therapies in Medicine in 2015.2 Researchers analyzed previously published studies on the use of Nigella sativa for diabetes and concluded that it could improve blood sugar and cholesterol levels in diabetes models but noted that clinical trials are necessary to clarify the effects.

Another research review published in 2017 confirmed these findings.


Preliminary research suggests that black seed oil may offer benefits to people with asthma. For example, a study published in Phytotherapy Research in 2017 found that people with asthma who took black seed oil capsules had a significant improvement in asthma control compared with those who took a placebo.3


Black seed oil may reduce risk factors in women who are obese, according to a study.4

For the study, women consumed Nigella sativa oil or a placebo while following a low-calorie diet for eight weeks. At the study’s end, weight, waist circumference, and triglyceride levels had decreased by more in the group that took the Nigella sativa oil.

Another eight-week study combined aerobic exercise with black seed oil in a trial with overweight sedentary women. Researchers found that the exercise protocol paired with supplementation provided benefits including lower cholesterol levels

Other Uses

Black seed oil is also used as a remedy for conditions such as allergies, asthma, diabetes, headaches, high blood pressure, and digestive disorders.5

In addition, black seed oil is said to boost the immune system, reduce inflammation, and fight infections. The oil is used topically for skin and hair concerns, such as acne, dry hair, psoriasis, hair growth, and dry skin.

While researchers are still working on an acceptable drug for Coronavirus, we believe that a little dose of Black Seed oil will do our bodies a world of good, enhancing the immunity, combating the diseases that are there. Unless your personal physician is involved, not many doctors will recommend this for you.

Not just because they may not know about the oil, but also because there are vested interests in Western medicine and research and billions of dollars already spent looking for cure in their laboratories are at stake.

Or what do you think?
