A lot of research has been done about this amazing seed that’s mentioned in the Bible and Koran . In fact there’s this saying that – the only thing it can’t cure is death -I’m not confirming that statements though 😛 . What does research show;
1 . It dilates ( relaxes ) blood vessels like BP MEDS do.
- It has a cardiac depressant ability hence it lowers BP and reduces heart rate
It’s acts as a diuretic . What are diuretics ? They increase the volume of urine excreted . Usually the first line meds given for high BP are diuretics . They are also called WATER TABLETS. It does what FUROSEMIDE a popular water tablet does . Sodium levels need to be controlled in lowering blood pressure and that’s why people with high BP are asked to reduce salt intake – salt is SODIUM CHLORIDE
BLACK SEED increases the excretion of SODIUM, POTASSIUM and UREA. This leads to decrease in electrolytes , water and blood volume . These result in lowering blood pressure.
It acts like a CALCIUM CHANNEL BLOCKER blood pressure drugs ( CCB) . Examples of CCB drugs are AMLODIPINE, FELODIPINE, NIFEDIPINE which are commonly prescribed meds for high BP
- Has powerful antioxidant effect on the heart and blood vessels
However seeds are not that easily digested. They need to extracted in specialised ways to get maximum absorption . The oil too must be properly extracted without damaging sol ents and heat . Must be cold pressed . So to get the best , it’s important that you consume S specialised SEED BASEC NUTRITION SUPPLEMENTS
