Many neurological disorders, including depression and anxiety, are related to neurotransmitter imbalance. Stress is a common trigger for altered neurochemicals and behavioral changes. Stressed mice given black seed oil developed increased levels of two neurotransmitters, GABA and serotonin.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
