Can Black Cumin Seed Cure Dementia?
The human brain is found out to be one of the most complex things in the universe. Its depths are yet to be explored and who knows what people will find there. As much we would want it to be true, the concept seems too far away. as medical institutions and scientists have been busy in finding something more valuable, a cure for ‘Dementia’.
What Is Dementia And What Causes It?
Dementia is referred to a group of declining mental conditions which include memory loss and obstructions in daily functioning skill. It could be Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s or vascular dementia. Globally, the condition has spread close to 50 million people across the globe and the numbers are speculated to be doubled in next 20 years
The causes of dementia vary from condition to condition, for example, in cases of Alzheimer’s an abnormal protein cell called beta-amyloid starts tangling the brain nerves. The formation leads to the death of brain cells over the time and this process is known as neurodegenerative. The size of the brain starts to shrink, losing connections and eventually leading to death.
Other forms of dementia also infect people in more or less the similar way and so far no permanent cure could be found, however, there are few solutions that can prevent the chances of developing dementia and slow down the progression in those already suffering from it; Black Cumin Seed Oil aka the blessed seed from nature has that quality
Is Black Cumin Seed Really Effective
A study conducted by Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College proved that out of 144 strains of bacteria, 97 were killed by black seed oil while most of them were resistant to antibiotics
So What Makes Black Cumin Seed Oil So “Blessed”?
Black seed oil contains thymol, thymoquinone (TQ) and thymohydroquinone (THQ). All these are natural chemicals that were put to test against 30 harmful pathogens and each of them came out scoring perfectly.
The study disclosed that no fungus or mould can withstand any of the three chemicals. Thymohydroquinone, one of the chemicals found in black seed oil turned out to be more effective fighting against mental conditions.
Although there was no proof of this chemical completely eradicating the diseases, however, being one of the most potent ACHe inhibitors, it can prove to be effective in derailing the progression speed of any such mental condition. ACHe inhibitors are known to stop or slow the enzyme’s functions.
The same acetylcholine is found in the drug prescribed to Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and schizophrenic patients. Only, these drugs cost nerve wrecking amount. Black seed oil can be the natural, cheaper and effective substitute for the medicines.
Black seed can be consumed with daily meals, as a supplement in forms of capsules or tablets. Not only does this natural seed help in fighting dementia but, it has been titled as a cure for every disease.
