Description

Niger (scientifically known as Guizotia abyssinica) is an oilseed crop that originated (despite its name) comes from the Highlands of Ethiopia. It’s narrow , long and vaguely resembles black rice. It was probably domesticated before 3000 BC in the highlands of Ethiopia, where it is still cultivated as an oilseed crop. A little known fact is that Niger Seeds actually have shells, so if you see what looks like a seed on the ground, it's not usually the birds throwing them away. It is also known as Ramtil, Inga seed, Niger, Niger-seed, blackseed, noog/nug, nyger, nyjer, Niger-seed oil and ramtil oil.

Benefits

Niger seed oil is quite beneficial, more than other typical vegetable oils, to improve your cholesterol balance. It possesses high levels of omega-3 fatty acids and linoleic acid. This can help lower your chances of developing atherosclerosis, which can further prevent heart attacks and strokes.

Niger seed oil consists of a good amount of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds which make it popular for people struggling with arthritis, gout, rheumatism, fever, or high blood pressure.

Niger seed oil has non-acidic stability that makes it a healthy oil to curb morning sickness.

This oil also consists of a lower amount of unsaturated fats therefore it lowers uncommon symptoms like mood swings, stress, and hypertension.

Niger seed oil is extremely beneficial in giving protection to the body against colds and cases of flu. Regularly massaging this oil extract on the chest, back and other parts of the body gives relief against common symptoms in cases of flu and colds.
