Description

Black Seed Extract

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

Nigella Sativa health benefits and uses may include:

  • Supporting healthy metabolic function
  • Supporting healthy cellular function
  • Supporting healthy immune function
  • Supporting skin and scalp health
  • 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.

Thymoquinone and Dithymoquinone Structures

Is This Nigella Sativa Extract Standardized For Thymoquinone?

Yes, this Nigella Sativa Extract powder contains a minimum of 5% Thymoquinone content. 

What Is The Difference Between Black Seed Extract Powder and Black Seed Oil Extract? 

One of the main active compounds in black seed oil which is responsible for its reported benefits is Thymoquinone. In regular black seed oil it is often only present at levels of around 1%. However, we have been able to source a Nigella Sativa powdered extract which has a whopping 5% of thymoquinone! Not only is this black seed oil powder very high in Thymoquinone, the fact that it is a powder makes it a lot easier to use. Oils are oftentimes messy to handle, however, powders can be far more easily contained and used in a variety of ways in which the oil cannot. For example, if you make your own powder blends with other ingredients, especially if you are making your own capsules then using the black seed oil powder is ideal.

The black seed oil powder is especially useful if you are trying to target a specific amount of Thymoquinone. For example, with black seed oil, the maximum concentration of Thymoquinone, as mentioned earlier, is often times at around 1%. A common dose for black seed oil is around 500 mg to 1,000 mg. This means that a standard dose of black seed oil contains at maximum 5-10 mg of Thymoquinone. With this Nigella Sativa powdered extract, 500 mg of the powder would contain a very large amount of Thymoquinone: 25 mg. This means we can dose the powder much lower in comparison to black seed oil. A dosage that is equal to 10mg of Thymoquinone would only be 200mg of the Nigella Sativa Extract powder. 

The powdered Nigella Sativa Extract should also be slightly more stable than the Black Seed Oil during long term storage. So, if you are looking to enjoy the benefits of black seed oil, look no further than Nootropic Depot’s Nigella Sativa powder with 5% Thymoquinone.

Nigella Sativa Extract Dosage

As a dietary supplement, take 200mg of Nigella Sativa Extract powder once daily.

    Nigella Sativa Powder

    Thus far I haven't noticed any effects. Was really hoping this would help with my anhedonnia and avolition. I'm 3 days in. Maybe it takes time to work. I'm on antipsychotics so this may be the reason why it's not working.

    First black seed product ive tried

    Definitely noticing some positive effects from nigella sativa. I mixed one can with 8 ounces of black seed oil, weighed it and divided the weight by 100 for my dose. Doesn't taste delicious "the oil" reminds me of oregano oil but i don't even mind. Im never one to complain about the taste of a product if what i take it for is health benefits. What i noticed from the first dose is that it makes me very chill. Like im a chill guy but this stuff makes me feel even more so. I am more social when i take it and conversion flows. I can be myself i guess even though i am actually introverted by nature. I felt that it suppressed my appetite if i take it before eating so i stopped because im not looking to lose weight. When i take it before sleep it feels like i sleep deep even though wake up an hour earlier. Also finding some energy boost from it. Ill see if i notice other things in the future because its only my second week taking it.

    Great Stuff

    I thought I would try this - who am I to disagree with The Prophet Mohammed - and he was definitely right about this stuff. As a reviewer wrote below it just makes me feel better in every way possible. I feel more serene and it seems to have worked synergistically with Longvida Circumin and PEA (not phenylethylalimine, the PEA that ND sells) to make a chronic pain condition tolerable that formerly required heavy opioids. I like it enough to have just ordered the capsules as well for convenience.

    Amazing

    This is so much more effective and easy to use than regular black seed oil. I never knew it could come in a powder form, and now I will never go back to oil!

    High Quality Unique Product

    Black Seed Oil (BSO) offers many health benefits, making it incredibly versatile for whatever health goals you have. I have used high quality BSO from other companies for many years but I can definitely say this version of it, as an extract powder, is my favorite. I prefer my supplements to be in bulk powder form & had never seen a BSO powder before. This powder also has the highest Thymoquinone content of any BSO product I have used.
    This will be a staple in my supplement stack.
