A lot of people struggle with their weight. For some, it’s a genetic issue that they have to battle against constantly. For others, a few small changes to their lifestyles can have a massive effect on their weight.
A good diet and regular exercise will go a long way to helping you to cut some weight.
But did you know that Black Seed Oil may also be able to help?
In this article, we’re going to take a look at a few of the reasons why the oil may be able to help you to shed a few pounds.
The Ether Extract
Black Seed Oil contains several chemical compounds that affect your body in various ways. Most think about the anti-inflammatory benefits and the boost that these compounds give to your immune system. However, Black Seed Oil also contains an ether compound that has a very slight anorexic effect.
When we say anorexic effect, we’re not referring to the condition that leads to people losing too much weight. What we mean is that the ether extract can help you to lose a little bit of weight because it curbs your appetite.
At least, that’s according to Dr. Phuong Mai Le.
Le conducted a study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology that showed the oil has a positive effect on rats in this regard. However, it’s important to point out that there aren’t any comparable human studies to compare this to.
As a result, we have to say that the research is in its early stages. However, it certainly appears that the ether extract has a positive effect. Plus, there’s plenty of anecdotal evidence from people who have used Black Seed Oil for weight loss that supports this study.
Lowering Your Blood Sugar and Regulating Your Weight
You may have also heard that Black Seed Oil is a good addition to your diet if you have diabetes. In particular, it’s useful for Type-2 diabetes as it has the ability to lower the blood sugar levels in your body.
As you know sugar is essential for the body to function effectively. But it’s something that needs to be controlled. Too much or too little sugar, and your body will not function as effectively as it should. Which can lead to range of health issues.
Black Seed Oil is therefore vitally important for weight management and sugar control for the reasons mentioned above. Your body can only use so much sugar to keep you energised. If you have excess sugar in your blood, your body has no reason to burn through your fat stores. In other words, the body will only use what is necessary and what ever is not used will just turn to fat.
Lowering your blood sugar levels contributes to weight loss because it causes your body to start burning your stored fat.
However, there’s another benefit that you may not have expected from Black Seed Oil. Sugar is an addictive substance, which is why so many people end up gaining weight. Your body craves the foods that contain sugar because it feels good when you eat them.
Black Seed Oil helps you to control your blood sugar levels, which in turn means that you take control of your cravings. This harmonises well with the ether extract to curb your appetite for unhealthy foods.
The Final Word
Black Seed Oil is a vital element in any healthy weight loss management programme as it can help you to lose weight and control your sugar levels and keep cravings at bay.
