  • Product Description

    Black Seed Extract Capsules

    What is Nigella Sativa (Black Seed Extract)?

    Nigella Sativa is an annual flowering plant in the ranunculus family (Ranunculaceae) that is primarily found in Southern Europe, North Africa and Southwest Asia. Nigella Sativa is also cultivated in a number of other countries including India, Pakistan, Syria, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia. Also known as Black Seed Extract, Nigella Sativa Extract has a long history of documented use dating back 2,000 years in traditional and Ayurvedic medicine systems. The name "Black Seed" is, of course, a reference to the color of this annual herb's seeds. Aside from their reported health benefits, these seeds are also sometimes used as a spice in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisines. The Nigella Sativa plant itself can grow up to about 12 inches tall and its flowers are usually pale blue in color but can also be white, yellow, pink or light purple. It is believed that thymoquinone, which is present in Nigella Sativa seeds, is the major active chemical component responsible for Nigella Sativa's reported health benefits. Traditionally, Nigella Sativa Extract has been used due to the belief that it supports general well-being and longevity. While Nootropics Depot offers Nigella Sativa Extract in powder form, Black Seed Oil is another common form of the extract available for purchase.

    Nigella Sativa health benefits and uses may include:

    • Supporting healthy metabolic function
    • Supporting healthy cellular function

    • Supporting healthy stress levels and a positive mood
    • Supporting brain health and cognitive function

    Composition Of The Nigella Sativa Seed

    Nigella Sativa seeds contain a well-balanced composition of proteins, fatty acids and carbohydrates. A specific subset of the fatty acids, known as the essential oil, is considered the active part of the Nigella Sativa seed as it contains the main bioactive component Thymoquninone. While the oil component of a Nigella Sativa seed usually comprises 36-38% of its total weight, the essential oil component usually only accounts for .4% - 2.5% of the Nigella Sativa seeds total weight. A specific breakdown of the composition of Nigella Sativa's essential oil is as follows: 

    • Thymoquinone
    • dithymoquinone (Nigellone)
    • Thymohydroquinone
    • Thymo
    • p-Cymene
    • Carvacrol
    • 4-terpineol
    • Longifoline
    • t-anethole
    • Limonene

    Nigella Sativa Seeds also contain other non-caloric components including Thiamin (Vitamin B1), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6), Folic Acid, Potassium, Niacin, and more. 

    What Is Thymoquinone?

    While there are a number of active compounds found in Nigella Sativa including thymohydroquinone, p-cymene, carvacrol, 4-terpineol, t-anethol, and longifolene and others listed above; it is believed that the presence of the phytochemical Thymoquinone is largely responsible for Nigella Sativa's reported health benefits. Thymoquinone is then converted to a dimer known as dithymoquinone (Nigellone) in the body. Both cell and animal studies have suggested that Thymoquinone may support cardiovascular health, brain heath, cellular function, and more. Thymoquinone is classified as a pan-assay interference compound which bind to many proteins indiscriminately.

    1. Made a difference

      I noticed that I am calmer and therefore more focused. Very happy with the product and will continue to buy it along with Noopept. on 14th Mar 2019

    2. Effective Nootropic

      An effective “feel” good noot that helps my focus and attention and keeps me sharp for much longer than usual. I’m prone to feeling sore after a days work, and this has helped me not feeling that way. I also sleep much better and noticed a slight weight loss on 14th Dec 2018

    3. Very Nice

      ND did a really great job with this one. I do feel that one isn't too strong on it's own with regard to overt anxiolytic action, but with 2-3 capsules it does the job well. on 4th Dec 2018
