Know The Incredible Health Benefits Of Kalonji

on July 13, 2020 / by


Kalonji or Nigella, commonly known as Black Seeds is a staple in an Indian household. The tiny seeds are an interesting spice when used for tempering dishes as it adds a beautiful aroma with a hint of flavour to the final outcome. Though it is commonly used in everyday dishes like curries, vegetables, and even in samosa, papdis and kachori, very few realise that this tiny spice offers a host of health benefits too.

Kalonji is loaded with iron, potassium, calcium, vitamins, proteins and fatty and amino acids that help keep the heart, mind and body healthy. Here, let’s take a look at Health Benefits of Kalonji:

Controls Diabetes and Cholesterol
The biggest benefit of Kalonji is that it controls the sugar problem, whether an exciting one or a borderline one. Kalonji prevents the sudden spike of sugar level in blood and minimises other symptoms of diabetes. Regular intake also decreases cholesterol levels.

Boosts Memory 
The most common benefit of Kalonji is boosting and sharpening memory thereby improving brain function. Memory loss and cognitive function inability in elderly people such as dementia, alzheimers etc. can be prevented by a regular intake of Kalonji.

Improves Vision
The unknown but very vital benefit of Kalonji is improving and enhancing vision. As Kalonji is rich in many essential vitamins, it can instantly cure eye-related problems such as redness and watering. Upon regular intake, Kalonji is known to reverse vision deterioration and prevent cataract and such.

Reduces Inflammation
The popularly known benefit of Kalonji is reducing chronic inflammation. Kalonji contains an active compound called Thymoquinone, which helps to reduce swelling and inflammation that can lead to severe health disorders.

Protects Liver
The most crucial medical benefit of Kalonji is protecting the liver. The liver is the important organ that performs tasks like removing toxins from the body, metabolising drugs and processing nutrients. Kalonji is known to protect the liver from an injury or any kind of damage while improving efficiency.

Isn’t that simply awesome for a small little seed to do?

So then why not including it in the daily lifestyle, to rake in all these benefits. The easiest way to consume it is taking a teaspoon of Nature Sure™ Kalonji Tail in a cup of black tea or pop a kalonji black seed tablet. These tablets are made with pure and natural ingredients and contain 300mg of 100% pure extract of Kalonji. According to many ancient scriptures including the ayurveda, daily intake of these tablets help strengthen the body from the inside, protect it against several health risks, provide antioxidants and purify the blood.

Apart from these benefits, Kalonji also has a host of beauty, skin and hair benefits, which I shall list out in another article.
