Black seed oil for multiple sclerosis (MS)

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease in which there is  inflammation and damage to the nerves in the central nervous system. The disease is characterised by loss of the myelin (demylination) covering surrounding axons (nerves). MS is thought to be due to and abnormal immune response mediated by  T cell. 

A study was conducted which examined the effects of black seed oil extract, Thymoquinone, on an experimental model of MS (experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis).

Amazingly the study found that result showed that Thymoquinone (extract of black seed oil) due to its antioxidant effect is almost 90% preventive and 50% curative in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis. 

This result supports the possibility of treating the human chronic relapsing multiple sclerosis with black seed oil extract Thymoquinone.

      Dear Deep
      There is no established dose. Reports online in which people have had benefits from black seed oil for multiple sclerosis tend to be between 1 – 3 spoons per day. It is important to take it consistently and better if spread over the day before meals.
      All the best

          Please start with one 5ml teaspoon per day for one week but increase to three over the course of a month. Once your symptoms improve you can reduce down to a maintenance dose. If you have severe symptoms and disease activity you may need a larger initial dose until things are controlled and then reduce down to a maintenance dose.
