A recent clinical trial indicates that Hashimoto’s disease, the most common form of hypothyrodism, may be improved by adding only two grams of powdered black seed to your daily diet.
A powerful new randomized clinical trial reveals that the ancient healing food known as nigella sativa (aka “black seed”), once known as the “remedy for everything but death”, may provide an ideal treatment for the autoimmune thyroid condition known as Hashimoto’s disease, which is the most common cause of hypothyroidism.
The new study, published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, evaluated the effects of nigella sativa on patients with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, and in particular, assessed thyroid function, serum Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) – 1, Nesfatin -1 and anthropometric features using a randomized controlled trial
The study took 40 patients with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, aged between 22 and 50 years old, and randomized them into one group receiving two grams of powdered encapsulated Nigella sativa and the other 2 grams starch placebo daily for 8 weeks. Changes in anthropometric variables, dietary intakes, thyroid status, serum VEGF and Nesfatin-1 concentrations were measured.
