Mind-blowing Benefits of Kalonji Seeds
Black seed is a plant which is widely known as Kalonji in Pakistan.
People have used the black seeds to make medicine for over 2000 years. In fact it is used as a medicine in the form of a home remedy for several pains and aches.
Historically, black seed has been used for headache, toothache, nasal congestion, asthma, arthritis, and intestinal worms. It has also been used for pink eye, pockets of infection (abscesses), and parasites.
Today, black seed is most commonly used for asthma, diabetes, hypertension, weight loss, and other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support most of these uses.
There is some scientific evidence to suggest that black seed might help boost the immune system, fight cancer, reduce swelling, and lessen allergic reactions by acting as an antihistamine.
