recent studies have confirmed that the oil of black cumin seeds (Nigella sativa) can inhibit the activity of cancer cells and is effective cancer, at least in animal studies treatment. Oil black cumin seeds and its extract (thymoquinone) are a powerful weapon against liver cancer, melanoma, pancreatic cancer, cervical cancer, breast cancer, bone cancer, stomach cancer, lymphoma, cancer prostate cancer, colon cancer and brain cancer.
In addition to decades of black cumin oil research, scientists still have not made any progress in human clinical trials, even with almost no risk of side effects s.
As we can conclude from some studies black seed oil is an effective form of treatment for many cancers. However, it is still not get enough recognition by modern medicine. This article will attempt to examine the political pressures that might be holding trials in humans, and also try to learn why the pharmaceutical industry wants to subject the use of black seed oil.
This oil has been used as cancer treatment millennia
Two separate in 2011 (China and Saudi Arabia) studies were reviewing the literature on the use oil of black cumin seed as a treatment for cancer. They noticed that the oil has been used for centuries as a traditional remedy of cancer and confirmed their anti-cancer properties were given. Oil and its extract are effective in treating many diseases, including various cancers, cardiovascular problems, diabetes, asthma, kidney disease and many more.
The scientist also noted that the exact mechanism behind their properties against cancer is not yet fully understood. Some studies suggest that thymoquinone has an antioxidant role and strengthens the immune system. What we know for sure it is that the oil of black cumin seeds induces apoptosis in cancer cells without compromising immunity. Akt pathway controls as well, which means you have control of cell survival of all cells in the body, healthy and cancerous. Although energy Nigella sativa is known for thousands of years, modern medicine has acknowledged that only recently, in the last two or three decades.
Traditional medicine is right – black cumin seeds and honey work together
Egyptian scientists have been studying the effect of honey and oil of black cumin seeds on oxidative stress and cancer by exposing rats to a strong carcinogen. Four groups in total were exposed to the carcinogen – some groups were fed with black seeds or honey, and one group was fed only two ingredients combined. After 6 months, the rats were evaluated – those who ate only black cumin seeds were 80% protection against oxidative stress and cancer formation, but the group that was fed black cumin seeds and honey had 100% protection against oxidative stress, cancer formation and inflammatory responses.
oil Black seed is ideal for radiation treatment
A study of 2014 Turkey investigated how the oil can help people in radiation treatment for Cancer. They learned that many of these patients experience severe side effects during and after treatment. The study explored the effects of oil in irradiated rats. The rats were exposed to a single dose first gamma radiation. One group received one gram of oil an hour before radiation and received a 10 gr. the dose for the next 10 days. The other group was given saline. The control group was not irradiated. When the data were analyzed, it was shown that oil black cumin seeds reduces oxidative stress markers and has potent antioxidant effects, increasing antioxidant capacity in tissues rat liver. Therefore, administration of the oil prior to radiation and for 10 days after rodents protected from the harmful effects of radiation.
In 2012, a study of India explored the effects of the oil in mice exposed to gamma radiation. For testing, a group of normal and a group of tumor-bearing mice were investigated. Mice received black seed extract prior to radiation (100 mg. Per 1 kg. Of body weight). The black seed oil protected spleen, liver, brain and intestines from the harmful effects of radiation in the two groups. This confirmed the protective oil black cumin seeds against radiation damage effects and biochemical alterations. The effect was due to the antioxidant properties of seeds and their ability to hunt free radicals. Thus, the seed extract of black cumin can be used in human patients with cancer undergoing radiation therapy of cancer, to subdue the harmful side effects, protect against oxidative stress in normal problems, and essentially, improve the lives of patients.
The black seeds interfere with uncontrolled cell growth and kill cells of liver cancer
In 2013, a study in India explored the effects of thymoquinone in two groups of rats. One group received 0.01% of thymoquinone for drinking water, while the other was given tap water. After 16 weeks, the nodules of liver damage markers and cancer tumor markers were measured – showed significant decrease in the size of tumor markers in the group that drank water with thymoquinone. They did not develop new cancer nodules as well. This confirmed the beneficial role of thymoquinone in the treatment of liver cancer, and strong ability to prevent cancer cell proliferation.
A study of Egypt 2012 explored the antitumor effects of the combination of honey and oil seeds of black cumin in the cells of human liver cancer in laboratory experiments. The antioxidant capacity of both honey and oil was examined, and its ability to kill cancer cells. The results showed that both ingredients were efficient in reducing the viability of cancer cells, and improved antioxidant status of the cells in addition to inducing apoptosis.
kills the seed oil black lung cells
Saudi Arabia scientists said in 2014 that black seeds have been used in traditional medicine to treat various diseases during long time. Its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties are well known. a study that investigated the anti-cancer extract of black seed oil and used against cells of human lung cancer in a laboratory activity took place. Cancer cells were exposed to 0.01 mg / ml of the oil and 1 mg / ml of the extract, the cell viability evaluated later. The results showed that both the extract and oil significantly reduce the population of cancer cells change room and cellular morphology. They also concluded that the level of cell death increased with greater concentration of oil or extract. The cells lost their typical appearance and became smaller in size as well.
Black seed Components destroy malignant cells brain cancer
In 2013, scientists at Ohio State University published a study suggesting that glioblastoma is more aggressive and most common malignant brain tumor in humans type. They concluded that there was a need for additional therapies for the treatment of this type of brain tumor. As natural phytochemicals have strong tumor killing skills, the study focused on thymoquinone. It has selective cytotoxic properties to human cells, which means that kills cancer cells and normal leaves untouched.
The study also explored the ability of thymoquinone to selectively inhibit cancer cells in the brain and spinal cord to make clones of themselves, but not hinder the normal activity of cells in the brain and spinal cord. The black seed extract can also inhibit autophagy genes in cancer cells. Autophagy in cancer cells allows continuous growth in cancer cells, keeping the cellular energy production. When inhibited, energy production will also suffer, resulting in tumor regression and survival of tumor affected organs spreads. This means that thymoquinone provides an exciting new approach to cancer treatment.
