Black cumin seed has been used for health and wellness for thousands of years.
In it, you’ll find vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and even compounds that improve cell growth. It’s been called a veritable fountain of youth.
Black cumin seeds come from a plant called Nigella sativa. The plant is sometimes called black caraway or fennel flower too, and it’s a totally different plant from the cumin that you normally cook with. That kind of cumin comes from Cuminum cyminum and is related to parsley.
