Black Seed oil (also known as Egyptian Black Cumin) is cold-pressed from the Black Seed herb, which contains about 28-35% oil. The oil is more concentrated than the seed itself, though the seed meal also contains fiber, protein, and carbohydrates. Research shows that Black Seed Oil contains more than 100 components, some of which are still unidentified, that work together synergistically. It is a rich source of polyunsaturated fatty acids (also known as "essential fatty acids") which are the building blocks of cells and help the body produce Prostaglandin E1.
Hemani Black Seed Oil is extracted from 100% organically grown selected seeds maintaining highest standard during collection once using cold press technology. This ensures premium virgin quality and also free from any additives or preservatives. It is well known that seed quality is determined by climate and soil.
