Antidiabetic Effects

Elevated blood glucose associated with diabetes can cause cellular damage that contributes to complications. Black seed oil may reduce fasting blood sugar and HbA1c levels and increase insulin production. Thymoquinone is a powerful antioxidant and may protect the pancreatic islets and beta cells responsible for insulin production.1‘A Review on Therapeutic Potential of Nigella Sativa: A Miracle Herb.’ PubMed, pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/29962349.

Some evidence suggests that black seed oil can also enhance certain enzymes necessary for carbohydrate metabolism and influence serum insulin levels by reducing insulin absorption in the intestines.2H;, Tavakkoli A;Mahdian V;Razavi BM;Hosseinzadeh. ‘Review on Clinical Trials of Black Seed (Nigella Sativa ) and Its Active Constituent, Thymoquinone.’ Journal of Pharmacopuncture, U.S. National Library of Medicine, pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30087794
