Medicinal

Black cumin seeds are used in the treatment of a wide range of conditions, including headache, rheumatic pains, asthma and coughs. Like many aromatic culinary herbs, they are especially beneficial for the digestive system, soothing stomach pains and spasms and easing wind, bloating and colic


The ripe seed is anthelmintic, carminative, diaphoretic, digestive, diuretic, emmenagogue, galactagogue, laxative and stimulant

An infusion is used in the treatment of digestive and menstrual disorders, insufficient lactation and bronchial complaints

The seeds are much used in India to increase the flow of milk in nursing mothers and they can also be used to treat intestinal worms, especially in children

A powdered mixture of the seeds, combined with those of Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum), Cress (Lepidium sativum), Myrrh (Commiphora spp.) and the dried leaves of Cleome droserifolia, Ambrosia maritima and Centaurium pulchellum, administered as tea, is used in Egypt to treat diabetes

Externally, the seed is ground into a powder, mixed with sesame oil and used to treat abscesses, haemorrhoids and orchitis



The powdered seed has been used to remove lice from the hair

The effectiveness of the seeds in the treatment of several diseases has been confirmed experimentally:-
The lipid part of the ether-extracted seeds exhibits galactagogue action

Aqueous extracts have a broncho-dilatory effect explaining the seed's effectiveness against cough. This effect is attributed to the compound thymoquinone, but other compounds also play a role

The powdered seeds are as effective as the commercial drug niclosamide against the tapeworms Taenia saginata and Hymenolepis nana in children

Powdered seeds have also been found to be effective against the tapeworm Moniezia expansa in sheep

Extracts of the seeds are currently being tested for their effect against rheumatism and related inflammatory diseases, in reducing the side-effects of chemotherapy in the treatment of cancer and in invigorating the immune function in humans
