Our Black cumin seed oil cold pressed organic is obtained by gentle cold pressing.

The fatty oil contains at least 70% unsaturated fatty acids, valuable fat-accompanying substances such as sterols and vitamin E as well as approx. 1% essential oil. The cold-pressed Oleum Nigallae sativae contains 50 - 65% of the doubly unsaturated linoleic acid from which the gamma-linolenic and arachidonic acids are formed in the body. The monounsaturated oleic acid is contained to 18 - 30 % and the saturated palmitic acid to 8 - 15 %.

In addition, sterols such as sitosterol, cholesterol, stigmastanol and campesterol, which are mostly esterified with fatty acids, could be identified.

Polyunsaturated fatty acids are essential, i.e. vital and play an important role in the entire metabolism. The essential oil, which black cumin seed oil naturally contains in small amounts, contains among other things the active ingredient thymoquinone, which can have a toxic effect in case of extreme overdosage. The essential oil is responsible for smell and taste, has a light yellow colour and turns reddish if stored for a long time. The thymoquinone bound in the volatile fraction is suitable for identity testing in pharmacy laboratories. Tanning agents and saponins round off the wide range of ingredients. Biotin, which is important for skin and hair, round off the combination and support the health-promoting effect.
