It is indigenous to the Mediterranean, but grows prolifically in many areas of the world. Our black seeds (Nigella Sativa) are certified USDA Organic, meaning it is NON-GMO, and grown without the use of pesticides and chemicals.
Flavour and aroma aside, the tiny black seed comes with a whole lot of health benefits.
It’s loaded with trace elements, vitamins, crystalline nigellone, amino acids, saponin, crude fiber, proteins and fatty acids like linolenic and oleic acids, volatile oils, alkaloids, iron, sodium, potassium and calcium.
