With nearly 500,000 people going to the emergency room each year due to kidney stones, a recent randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical trial on black seed oil is giving people a chance for a treatment that is based from the therapeutic oil.
In the sixty participant study, one group received 1000 milligrams of black seed oil per day while the other received a placebo.
After ten weeks of treatment, the results were rather incredible.
Nearly 45% of the black seed oil group completely excreted their stones, while nearly 52 % had a decrease in stone size and 3 % had no change in stone size.
The placebo group on the other hand had a 15 % excretion rate and an 11% decrease rate.15 % also had an increase in stone size and 58% had no change in stone size.
Written another way, the black seed oil group was 3 times more likely to completely dissolve and excrete their stone and was nearly 5 times more likely to have a decrease in their stone size.
Black cumin seed oil also has been proven to have the properties of being anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-cancer, anti-diabetic and has positive effects on reproductive, digestive, immune, nervous system health and respiratory health.
The main medicinal constituent within black seed oil is called thymoquinone. It has been shown to be anti-epileptic, anti-cancer and has strong immune and respiratory system enhancing properties.
Black seed oil is also often used topically to support healthy hair and skin.
With all of the science backing black seed oil’s impressive medicinal properties, the recent human study showing how effective it was at dissolving kidney stones comes as no shock and gives hope to many more people that their painful kidney stones may be helped by the oil of the black cumin seeds.
