Im­prov­ing blood cir­cu­la­tion

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SUNBIZ -

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.
