BOOST'D Black Seed Oil is Virgin

Not only is our black seed oil cold pressed, but it is virgin.

This means that we cold press our black seed oil once unlike other manufacturers who re-press the remnants of their initial cold-press to maximise volume and profits.

We know that re-pressing black seed oil will significantly reduce the richness of the final product which is why we never do this as we pride ourselves on producing the industry’s finest black seed oil.

We use Glass, Not Plastic

Black seed oil contains active compounds that can interact with certain plastics, potentially leading to degradation of the oil's quality and properties.

Glass bottles are inert and provide an airtight, light-resistant environment, ensuring the oil's integrity and longevity.

This preserves its nutritional content and prevents any unwanted chemical interactions.

But, what can it help me with? So glad you asked...
  • Acne + Scarring

  • Digestive Problems

  • Hair Loss, Damage + Greying

  • Weight Loss + Diabetes

And much more...

  • Epilepsy

  • Allergies + Flu

And, how do I use BOOST’D Black Seed Oil?

Internally and Topically

You can drink black seed oil and apply it directly to your skin.

We suggest to drink just a teaspon of black seed oil every day, ideally, every morning on an empty stomach.

And then,

You can gradually increase your dosage for the day by drinking an additional teaspoon of black seed oil.

The second teaspoon should be consumed in the evening.

Applications of Black Seed Oil for Treating Illnesses and Diseases

Black Seed Oil for Asthma

Black seed oil has potent anti-asthmatic effects, and its
efficiency is comparable with standard conventional medicines that are
typically prescribed in asthma treatment.

Black seed oil acts as a bronchodilator because of its
anti-inflammatory effects. The use of black seed oil can help reduce the
secretion of anti-inflammatory and antihistamine effects.

Overall, black seed oil administration for treating asthma
improves lung function by providing immunomodulatory effects, spasmolytic,
anti-leukotrienes, and calcium antagonist properties.

All these effects of black seed oil further help reduce the
frequency of asthma attacks.

Clinical trial reports suggest that asthma symptoms can be
controlled for some by consuming ½ teaspoon of black seed oil 2 times per day
for 4 weeks.

A herbal tea can be prepared by adding black seed oil,
ginger, and lemon (honey can be added to sweeten it).

This is a great recipe for treating asthma.

Black Seed Oil for Insomnia

Mix one teaspoon of black seed oil with warm milk (can add
honey to sweeten). Drink this one hour before going to sleep. This is known to
significantly improve sleep.

Herbal therapists also recommend a gentle massage of black
seed oil against the temples, and besides the eyes.

Black Seed Oil for Allergies

Black seed oil can provide symptomatic relief from allergies by controlling reactions to allergens.

Thymoquinone, one of the primary ingredients in black seed oil, contains potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant components, which not only reduce the inflammatory condition associated with allergies but also supports detoxifying the body and excreting allergens.

Black Seed Oil for Cold and Flu

Flu and colds are both viral infections, although the flu is the more serious one.

Both the flu and cold have very similar symptoms, such as sneezing, coughing, fever and body aches. The initial stage of the infection causes a sore throat, runny nose, coughing, and chest congestion.

Sometimes, poor immunity triggers frequent occurrences of cold and flu.

Black seed oil has been proven to boost immunity as it provides symptomatic relief by clearing upper respiratory congestion.

Black seed can reduce contraction in the tracheal tube by inhibiting the secretion of leukotriene.

In addition, it has an antispasmodic effect and promotes movement to clear mucous. Thus, black seed acts as an expectorant.

Because of the anti-inflammatory effects of black seed oil, this helps reduce pulmonary inflammation, constriction, and also dilates the respiratory tract. These actions reduce the risk of breathing difficulties.

Research shows that theophylline, the active ingredient in black seed oil acts as a bronchodilator and provides effective results as quickly as 30 mins of administration.

To treat chest and nasal congestion, inhale black seed oil steam by adding one teaspoon of black seed oil into a cup of boiling water. If the condition is severe, then oral intake of the black seed oil is recommended twice a day to reduce the severity.

Black seed oil can also be used as a nasal drop to treat nasal congestion.

Simply take 3 times per day for 6 weeks. You should see a noticeable difference in just 2 weeks.

Black seed oil for dry cough in a tea form is a good remedy option. Add one teaspoon of black seed oil to a cup of herbal tea, twice per day. You can also massage the black seed oil against your chest and back.

Black Seed Oil for High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure has become a common condition associated with age and often causes cardiac disorders. Black seed oil has some positive properties which are known to be effective against hypertension.

Hypertension and cardiac function are interrelated. Black seed oil acts as a calcium channel blocker and inhibits cardiac exertion, which can reduce high blood pressure.

In addition, black seed oil has a diuretic effect and reduces plasma volume.

This mechanism of black seed oil also supports anti-hypertension effects and also has reduced the occurrence of strokes.

Black Seed Oil for Diabetes

An insulin insufficiency causes impaired carbohydrate metabolism and increases blood glucose levels.

The antioxidant property of black seed oil has the potency to preserve the integrity of the pancreatic B cell and thus restores normal insulin levels.

Studies have found that nigellone and TQ can effectively reduce blood glucose levels by increasing the secretion of insulin in type 2 diabetics.

Black Seed Oil for Infections and Skin Diseases

Skin is the outer-most defence mechanism of the body.

Even though our skin is very effective at defending our bodies, bacteria, fungi, and other microbes can still invade our skin tissue and cause infections.

Commonly occurring skin infections can be treated and prevented by applying black seed oil. All ages can benefit from the administration of black seed oil as it is free from side effects.

Fungal infections that occur mainly on skin, nails and hair can also be treated with black seed oil as it is very effective against fungal growth.

Anti-microbial effects and anti-inflammatory properties of black seed can accelerate wound healing by reducing microbial growth on the infected site and also reduce skin inflammation meaning black seed oil also has skin repairing properties.

Back seed oil can help with common skin problems like Psoriasis and eczema by directly applying the oil to the affected area on the skin as it can provide effective symptomatic relief.

In addition, black seed oil is also known to have skin cancer preventive properties.

Black Seed Oil for Psoriasis

Psoriasis is the result of an immunity disorder and overgrowth of upper skin layers causing thick, dry, and scaly red patches, which can be painful in some cases.

The application of black seed oil to the affected area provides symptomatic relief by preventing excessive growth of skin tissue. This can reduce itchy, scaly and dry skin and assist in managing psoriasis effectively.

Applying a combination of 1 teaspoon of back seed oil with a few drops of lemon juice to the skin provides a protective effect against microbial attacks. Simply apply to the skin, leave for 15 minutes and wash it off with cold water.

Black Seed Oil for Digestive Problems

Digestive problems may appear due to malfunctioning of the oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, liver, rectum, pancreas and gall bladder. There are varied symptoms associated with digestive problems, including abdominal pain, heartburn, distension in the abdomen, nausea, vomiting, flatulence, diarrhoea and constipation.

Black seed oil is used for digestive issues in folk medicine. Animal research showed anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of black seed oil improve the intestinal barrier function by decreasing the release of inflammatory cytokines, preventing oxidative damage and restricting bacterial translocation. The antibacterial effects of black seed can inhibit the growth of Escherichia coli, H.pylori etc.

Black seed oil not only reinforces digestion, it prevents diarrhoea and flatulence by treating weak stomach and other gastro organs functionality, but it also prevents gastrointestinal cancer.

Black Seed Oil for Joint Disorders

The primary symptoms of joint disorders include inflammation and pain in and around the joints.

This can significantly restrict and disrupt your day-to-day life.

In general, joint disorders are medically termed as arthritis, which comes from the Greek words ‘artho’, which means joint and ‘itis’ meaning inflammation.

Black seed oil is a naturally obtained analgesic, which provides anti-inflammatory effects, without any side effects.

There are multiple bioactive phytochemicals present in black seed oil that play an important role in providing analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects.

Black seed oil has a potent antioxidant property, which reduces joint inflammatory conditions, as accumulated oxidative stress in the joints induces inflammation.

Excessive nitric oxide synthesis also induces joint inflammation, but black seed inhibits its synthesis.

Black seed oil acts as a pain modulator in the brain, which provides an analgesic effect. The anti-inflammatory properties of black seed oil also help with reducing joint pain.

A study conducted on elderly people with knee osteoarthritis showed that topical application of black seed oil on the knee joint three times daily for 3 weeks provided pain relief and the effect was more effective than the commonly prescribed synthetic acetaminophen.

We believe this example truly highlights how underused black seed oil currently is and how much it can help people once it eventually becomes more mainstream.

Black Seed Oil for Cancer

Black seed oil has several anti-cancer properties; it provides cytotoxic, anti-carcinogenic, anti-mutagenic, proapoptotic, anti-proliferative, anti-metastatic effects and anti-oxidant effects.

These multiple anti-cancer tools are primarily obtained from black seed oil due to its thymoquinone component.

Its anti-inflammatory activity impedes tumour growth and its progression.

Black seed oil also causes the breakdown of cancerous cells and provides cytotoxic effects.

Also, the anti-cancer effects of black seed oil are effective in managing several types of cancers; skin cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer, blood cancer, liver cancer etc.

Combining 1 teaspoon of black seed oil and 1 teaspoon of honey before breakfast can provide added protection against reducing tumour cells in cancer.

This will not cure cancer, but it can reduce some of the tumour cells in the body.

In addition, Thymoquinone is effective against pancreatic cancer due to its cytotoxic properties.

Black Seed Oil for Meningitis

Meningitis is an inflammatory condition of the brain that occurs due to excessive secretion of cytokines and other inflammatory mediators.

Animal research showed that black seed oil has re-myelinating power by inhibiting astrocytic and microglial proliferation.

In addition, the antioxidant property of black seed oil prevents neurological damage.

Naturopath experts agreed that black seed oil is one of the best natural remedies to treat meningitis.

It is recommended to take 1-2 teaspoons daily.

Black Seed Oil for Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder, which causes convulsions.

Black seed oil contains TQ, which is an anticonvulsant.

All of black seed oil’s effects on epilepsy are still unknown, but, a human study conducted with epileptic children treated with black seed oil showed a significant reduction in seizures.

Research shows that malondialdehyde reduction and enhancement of glutathione by administering black seed oil is the main mechanism to reduce seizures.

Increased levels of glutathione provide an oxidative defense to the cerebral tissue.

Black Seed Oil for Hair Loss and Greying

Black seed oil is effective in treating hair loss and premature greying.

Black seed oil’s antioxidant properties and antimicrobial effects assist in the strengthening and restoration of hair follicles and prevention of hair loss.

The anti-inflammatory effect of black seed oil can reduce scalp disorders and improve hair growth.

Black seed oil also promotes melanin synthesis from the scalp tissue and prevents the greying of hairs.

It is commonly known that stress induces hair loss and greying, but what is not so commonly known is that black seed oil has stress management abilities by antagonising the substance P receptor activity which can help with this.

Also, GABA activities and plasma nitrite reduction can be achieved by using black seed oil, which can provide anxiolytic effects.

Black Seed Oil for Obesity

Black seed oil prevents obesity and any associated complications due to its anti-oxidant properties. Experts have recommended consuming black seed oil with regular exercise as it can help to control both obesity and cholesterol levels.

Black seed oil also possesses mild anorexic type effects, which of course can assist in reducing food cravings, thus assisting in reducing belly fat.

Also, a preclinical study reported that continuous ingestion of black seed oil for 4 weeks can cause a 25% appetite reduction which can significantly assist with weight reduction.

Black Seed Oil for Acne and Pimples

Acne and pimples are quite common, especially among teenagers.

Acne is often a primary cause of self-consciousness and depression.

Sebum is an oily content secreted from the sebaceous gland and excessive secretion of sebum causes blockage of the pores in the skin and restricts the drainage process.

Due to the draining process being restricted, toxins and microbes that have invaded the skin (which naturally occurs throughout the day), remain in the pores of the skin for a longer period of time due to the restricted skin drainage which ultimately causes acne.

Black seed oil for acne and pimples is recommended as it’s a good detoxifier and its immunomodulatory properties assist to combat acne formation and helps to cure it.

Applying the black seed oil to the skin has remedial effects against acne and pimples, but also improves social confidence by providing acne-free skin and reducing acne scars.

Black Seed Oil for Body and Skin Care

Black seed oil for body and skin care has been proven to be safe for all age groups as it helps with skin texture and complexion. It also rejuvenates the skin.

This is a completely natural way to pamper your body while attaining multiple health benefits.

Black Seed Oil for Sciatica Pain

Black seed oil has been successfully used for sciatica pain.

The sciatic nerve irritation causes neurological pain in the lower back. Usually, the severity of the sciatica pain can interfere with the physical activity of the affected individual and this can go on for many years.

The nature of the sciatica pain varies from dull soreness, numbness, tingling sensation, an electric shock-like throbbing heat or even as extreme as a stabbing pain.

The most common underlying cause of sciatica pain is spinal herniation, however, it could be a slipped disc, spinal osteoarthritis or piriformis syndrome.

Black seed oil for sciatica pain has anti-nociceptive properties as well as antioxidant effects.

The black seed oil can indirectly activate the supraspinal mu and kappa-opioid receptor subtypes.

The strong and analgesic property of black seed oil is effective in treating sciatica pain at both initial and advanced stages.

The inflammatory condition is treated with black seed oil due to its anti-inflammatory effects which also enhance the viability of neuronal cells, preserve neuronal integrity, and prevents neuronal loss as the black seed has neuroprotective properties.

The antioxidant properties of Nigella Sativa act against neurotoxicity.

Sciatica pain-related ischemia; inadequate blood circulation in sciatica nerves leads to permanent disability and resultant of this causes necrosis in sciatica nerves.

Black seed also has muscle relaxant properties, which may prevent piriformis syndrome and related sciatica pain.

Take one teaspoon of black seed oil orally, 30 mins before breakfast and repeat the dose before bedtime.

Experts suggest taking black seed oil with warm water.

Sciatica pain condition also requires massage therapy along with oral administration of black seed oil.

You can mix the black seed oil with other essential oils and massage the oil gently on the affected area site twice a day to obtain pain relief.

Black Seed Oil for Alzheimer’s Disease

A medical research study report illustrated one of the advantages of using black seed oil to treat Alzheimer’s included improvement of psychological symptoms.

Black seed oil alters GABA, glycine, glutamate and aspartate release.

Remarkably, the report also demonstrated that the antioxidant properties of the black seed oil protected and treated hippocampal neurodegeneration, memory power, attention, and cognitive ability in Alzheimer's patients.

Black Seed Oil for Arthritis

Arthritis is unfortunately very common and becomes increasingly common as people age due to the repetitive wear and tear of joints throughout life.

Black seed oil can help with treating arthritis just by simply consuming ¼ teaspoon (or a 500mg capsule) of black seed oil twice per day for a month.

This can significantly reduce joint pain, inflammation and morning stiffness.

Black Seed Oil for Hair
