Liver is an important organ of the body which has high rate of metabolism. The oxidative stress or damage caused by free radicals can induce liver damage. Kalonji (Blackseed, Nigella sativa) helps in preventing production of free radicals. It enhances antioxidant defense system, which reduces the adverse effect on liver.
With its free radical scavenger properties and enhancement of antioxidant defense in body, various medical studies have proven the effect of Kalonji in preventing and protecting liver damage.
For example, this study published in the Iranian Journal of Basic Med Science, a peer-reviewed, monthly publication by Mashhad University of Medical Sciences (MUMS), reviews ‘the protective effect of Nigella sativa against liver injury’.
The study warns against major liver damages mediated by oxidative stress as “alcoholic liver disease, fibrosis/cirrhosis, hepatic stellate cells, hepatocellular carcinoma, ischemic/reperfusion liver injury, paracetamol-induced liver damage, viral hepatitis, fatty liver and chemical pollutant-induced liver damage.” It mentions that “accumulation of fat in the liver can…progress to cirrhosis.” It also says that “Free fatty acids are the main sources of production of free radicals.”
The study terms Kalonji as a hepatoprotective and highlights benefits of black cumin seeds popularly known as the seeds of blessing in protecting the liver and cites that “its oil has been used as a diuretic, lactagogue, vermifuge and carminative. It has also been used in the treatment of fever, common cold, rheumatic diseases, asthma, headache, warts, and stings of scorpions and bites of snake. Recently, it is suggested that black seed, its oil and extracts act as antimicrobial, immune stimulant, hypotensive, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, antioxidant, hypoglycemic, spasmolytic and bronchodilator.”
The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of Kalonji makes it the best tonic for liver.
