Black Cumin Oil Reduction Asthma Health Benefits

Black Cumin Oil Associated With Reduction In Asthma Symptoms

Asthma can be debilitating and even lead to death if not treated properly. A recent study suggests that taking supplements containing black cumin oil may help reduce asthma symptoms.


Participants in the study included 80 people with asthma who were either given 500 mg of black cumin oil or a placebo twice daily for four weeks. At the conclusion of the study, the black cumin group had significant improvements in mean score on the Asthma Control Test, when compared with the placebo.


They also had a decrease in blood eosinophil count, which was –50 cells/microliter in the supplement group, compared with 15 cells/microliter in the placebo group. Blood eosinophil count is a biomarker of asthma inflammation.


Researchers from the University College London and King Abdulaziz University (in Saudi Arabia) conducted the study. It was published online ahead of print on January 17, 2017, in Phytotherapy Research.


Previous studies suggest that black cumin may help inhibit infections, boost liver health, and help with glucose control in people with diabetes. It’s best taken in supplement form but the seeds can also be sprinkled on breads, boiled into a drink, or even plain.
