Organic Black Seed Oil from Viridian Nutrition is certified organic by the Soil Association. Organic standards ensure that the Nigella sativa seeds are grown without the use of synthetic pesticides or other chemical sprays.

For over two thousand years the black seed (Nigella sativa), a plant from the Ranunculaceae (buttercup) family, has been traditionally used by various cultures throughout the world as a food and in health and general wellbeing. The ancient Egyptians knew and used the black seed. Tutankamun is even believed to have had a bottle of black seed oil in his tomb!

Black seed oil contains a multitude of active compounds including alkaloids, saponins, sterols, B vitamins, minerals and omega-3, omega-6  and omega-9 fats. Researchers believe its major actions come from three naturally occurring phytochemicals:

  • Thymoquinone (TQ) - acts as a scavenger for both free radicals and superoxide radicals
  • Thymohydroquinone (THQ) - a potent AChE inhibitor that supports the activity of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine for brain health and cognitive function
  • Thymol - the active ingredient in thyme essential oil, thymol was registered as a pesticide in 1964

This product is vegan, organic and certified Kosher
