US Patent No. 7,897,194 B2
The “Black Cumin Seed Oil Synergy Patent” covers the synergistic effect of antioxidant activity that occurs when cold pressed Black Cumin Seed Oil is blended with any other cold pressed seed oils (range from Red Raspberry Seed Oil, Cranberry Seed Oil, Black Raspberry Seed Oil, among many others). The antioxidant level after blending exhibits total antioxidant activity greater than the sum of the weighted average of the antioxidant activities of the individual oils.
The “Black Cumin Seed Oil Synergy Patent” encompasses both the synergistic effect of antioxidant activity when used topically and/or when ingested, making Black Cumin Seed Oil, combined with additional seed-oils, a powerful component within supplement products, as well as topical cosmeceuticals and personal care products.
The seeds of black cumin (Nigella sativa) have a long history as a spice as well as a health supplement in the Middle East, Asia, and parts of Europe. Black cumin seeds contain nigellone, a natural antihistamine and thymoquinone, which may help support a overall health and wellness. In addition to these two powerful components, Black Cumin Seed Oil is high in essential fatty acids and beta-sitosterol, a plant sterol known to support heart health.
