How To Consume Black Cumin?
Hello, I want to ask.
Hello Rayen, thank you for asking.
Black cumin is one type of herb that has been used as a form of natural medicine for hundreds of years ago. Besides being used as a seasoning for cooking, now black cumin extract is widely used by people to treat or control various diseases. For example, hypertension, diabetes, hypercholesterolemia (increased blood cholesterol levels). According to several studies, black cumin is suspected to have anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-oxidant effects.
Indeed there are some small-scale studies that try to examine the benefits of black cumin. Generally this type of research uses experimental animals which are given black cumin extract for several weeks. The effect in overcoming or controlling hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and hypercholesterolemia is indeed good.
But unfortunately, the effectiveness and safety of black cumin for humans has not yet been proven. Long-term large-scale clinical trials are needed to be able to find the right effect in humans. Research must be able to find out what particles of black cumin are useful, how much dose is needed, side effects caused, and so on.
At present there are no studies that discuss the consumption of black cumin with tea. Generally, black cumin is in the form of extracts or oils that are packaged in capsules. You can drink it with water. There are no data yet suggesting an interaction between tea and black cumin. Please note that the exact dose of black cumin is unknown. Therefore, consumption of black cumin wisely need not be excessive. Once a day, or every few days, and not consumed for a long time. The effect for each person is different. There are people who feel the positive effects, some do not.
Thus a brief explanation that I can give. May be useful. Regards.
