Q. How is black seed oil prepared?
A. Black seed oil is prepared from the seeds of the Nigella sativa plant, also known as black cumin. The seeds are cold-pressed to extract the oil, which is dark in colour and has a slightly bitter taste. Black seed oil has been used for centuries in traditional medicine for various health benefits and is commonly used as a dietary supplement.
The cold-pressing process involves mechanically crushing the seeds and using a press to extract the oil. The oil is collected and filtered to remove any impurities or debris. This process helps to preserve the natural potency and composition of the oil.
The resulting black seed oil is unrefined, meaning that it has not undergone any chemical or heat treatments to alter its composition. Unrefined black seed oil is commonly referred to as "virgin" or "pure" black seed oil, and is considered to be of the highest quality and potency.
