Improving blood circulation
GOOD blood circulation is an important function of the body. It is responsible for transporting oxygen and nutrients to our organs, tissues and cells, while simultaneously collecting carbon dioxide and other waste substances to be excreted from the body. Poor blood circulation can lead to the development of cold hands and feet, fatigue, numbness and a weakened immune system.
Over time, poor blood circulation can also give rise to medical conditions such as severe chest pain, heart attack, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, anaemia, indigestion, pneumonia, gout, kidney failure, hair loss, sexual dysfunction, hormone imbalance and more.
The solution to improving blood circulation can be found in black seed extract. Black seed is an ancient remedy that has been used to make medicine for over 2,000 years. It has been traced back to the Egyptian dynasty, when the seed was discovered in the tomb of King Tut. Moreover, according to Islamic Hadith, long-term use of black seed provides remedy against every disease except death (AtTirmidhi, Ahmad and Ibn Hibban).
Black seed extract is said to contain compounds such as thymoquinone, nigellone, protein (branched chain amino acid), essential oil (omega 3, 6, 7, 9), vitamin E, saponins and more. It is the synergistic effect of these compounds that accord black seed extract its highly potent health benefits.
In terms of improving blood circulation, black seed extract helps to improve nutrient and oxygen supply to the cells. It helps relieve cold hands and feet, numbness in certain parts of the body especially the extremities, and aid in cramps, swelling, water retention in the feet and varicose veins (swollen, enlarged veins under the skin).
Black seed extract can help prevent pale skin, brittle nails and hair. It also improves the immune system and reduces fatigue. People who consume it have better cognitive functions such as improved memory, thinking and attention.
