Black Seed Aids Weight Loss

Doctors reviewed 13 black seed (nigella sativa) studies covering 875 obese men and women. In 10 of the studies, participants taking black seed lost weight compared to placebo. In 11 of the studies, body mass index scores improved for black seed, and in eight studies, waist circumference decreased.

In another review of 11 black seed studies, obese participants that took black seed lost an average of 4.65 pounds, 1.38 inches in waist circumference, and body mass index scores improved.

In all the studies, black seed was safe, with participants reporting no serious side effects.
