Black Seed (Oil or Powder)

Low levels of zinc are associated with poor outcomes in COVID.[1] According to research, black seed (nigella sativa) acts as an ionophore for enhancing the uptake of zinc in the cells, thus enhancing the immune response against COVID.[2] Both black seed and raw honey have antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory properties. When taken together, they can help improve COVID symptoms and viral clearance.[3]

NEEDED:

Step 1

Combine 1 tbsp raw organic black seed (freshly ground powder or cold-pressed oil) with 1 tsp raw organic honey in 3/4 cup (6 ounces) of warm water.

Step 2

Drink on an empty stomach 30 minutes before meals.

Frequency

Take 1X a day
