CONTAINS:  amino acids(15),  calcium, carbohydrates,  dithymoquinone, iron,phosphorus, potassium, proteins, sodium, thymohydroquinone, thymol,  thymoquinone (TQ) (found in caraway, coriander, nutmeg)
FLOWERS: blue and white coloured and are in the shape of stars
FRUITS:the shape of half type (round) container in which small rough black granules.
SEEDS: sharp-cornered rectangular seeds (no longer than 3 mm) - used in food and medicine. These seeds have a special smell and bitter taste (toast them lightly).
Munich Institute for Research on Newer Therapeutic Methods [Münchner Institut zur Erforschung neuer Therapieverfahren] has confirmed by means of the most modern analytic methods that 
Black Seed, especially when combined with Garlic, is regarded as a harmonizer "Immunomodulatory Action."
Take five or seven (seeds) and grind them then apply them to his nostrils with drops of olive oil on this side and on this side.



Addiction/Withdrawal: A study on 35 opiate addicts found black seed as an effective therapy in long-term treatment of opioid dependence.
Asthma: Thymoquinone, one of the main active constituents within Nigella sativa, is superior to the drug fluticasone in an animal model of asthma.[vi] Another study, this time in human subjects, found that boiled water extracts of black seed have relatively potent antiasthmatic effect on asthmatic airways.
Chemical Weapons Injury: A randomized, placebo-controlled human study of chemical weapons injured patients found that boiled water extracts of black seed reduced respiratory symptoms, chest wheezing, and pulmonary function test values, as well as reduced the need for drug treatment.
Colon Cancer: Cell studies have found that black seed extract compares favorably to the chemoagent 5-fluoruracil in the suppression of colon cancer growth, but with a far higher safety profile.[x] Animal research has found that black seed oil has significant inhibitory effects against colon cancer in rats, without observable side effects.
Cancer:(Intestine cancer, blood cancer, throat cancer, etc.) Take one glass grape juice add half-teaspoon Black Seed oil and use thrice a day once in the morning before the breakfast, after lunch and after dinner. Take 1kg. Barley and 2kg. Wheat flour mix together make bread (roti) or daliya of harira and give to the patient. Treatment may continue for 40 days. Avoid potatoes, arvee, brinjal and ambada vegetable.
COUGH
Take one cup of warm water add two spoons of honey mixed with half tea spoon of Black Seed oil and use this mixture twice a day (once in the morning before the breakfast and in the night before going to bed). Treatment may continue for two weeks. Avoid cold stuff items.
Diabetes Type 2 Two grams of black seed a day resulted in reduced fasting glucose, decreased insulin resistance, increased beta-cell function, and reduced glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) in human subjects.
Take one-cup decoction (black tea) mix half-teaspoon Black Seed oil and drink it in the morning and before going to bed. Avoid oily foodstuff, particularly fried items. If any other allopathic treatment is going on, continue that treatment. After 20 days check sugar, if it is normal allopathic treatment should be stopped and Black Seed treatment be continued. After forty days, sweet can be taken to check your sugar level. If it is normal stop the treatment.
GUMS SWELLING
 Take one spoon vinegar and add half teaspoon of Black Seed oil and apply on affected area for 2 or 3 minutes and rinse the mouth. Repeat this process twice a day. Treatment may continue for one week.
HEART ATTACK
a cup of goat milk add half teaspoon of Black Seed oil and use this mixture twice a day. Avoid all fatty food items. Continue treatment for ten days. After ten days use daily once.
High Blood pressure: The daily use of 100 and 200 mg of black seed extract, twice daily, for 2 months, was found to have a blood pressure-lowering effect in patients with mild hypertension.
In any hot drink tea / coffee and half teaspoon of Black Seed oil and use this mixture twice a day also eat two cloves of garlic Daily.
HIV 
patient who after undergoing treatment with a black seed extract experienced a complete recovery, with no detectable HIV virus or antibodies against HIV in their blood serum, both during and long after the therapy ended. By the 187th day on black seed therapy, testing indicating the blood was entirely cleared of signs of infection, a so-called 'sero-negative status'. The post-therapy CD4 counts increased from baseline to a normalized 650cells/ mm(3) with an undetectable viral (HIV-RNA) load.Follow up tests revealed that even after 24 months without herbal therapy the patient's HIV tests remained normal, without any indication of infection or associated immune suppression.

Protects Against Damage from Heart Attack: A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa has a protective effect against damage associated with experimental heart attack
Prevents Kidney Damage Associated with Diabetes: A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa has protective effects on experimental diabetic nephropathy.
Prevents Radiation Damage: Nigella sativa oil (NSO) and its active component,thymoquinone, protect brain tissue from radiation-induced nitrosative stress.
WEAKNESS
 Take half teaspoon Black Seed Oil and add one spoon honey. Mix together and use it once a day. General weakness and other diseases will be removed.

BRAIN - How nerve cells flexibly adapt to acoustic signals
In order to process acoustic information with high temporal fidelity, nerve cells may flexibly adapt their mode of operation according to the situation. At low input frequencies, they generate most outgoing action potentials close to the cell body. Following inhibitory or high frequency excitatory signals, the cells produce many action potentials more distantly. This way, they are highly sensitive to the different types of input signals. These fi ...

The protein c-FLIPR plays a key role in controlling a 'cellular suicide' process named 'apoptosis.' Scientists have described the significance of c-FLIPR for the immune system in detail: In the presence of an excess of this molecule, mice can fight infectious diseases better, but they develop autoimmune diseases as they get older.
