Supplements can be very beneficial to your health, especially if you have a nutrition gap due to your lifestyle or diet. There are also certain foods with high nutritional benefits that are unfortunately not a part of our normal diet – and here’s where a well-made, high-quality supplement can come in really useful.


Take Black Seed Oil for example. Derived from Black Cumin Seed (Nigella sativa), Black Seed Oil is known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, thanks to its high thymoquinone content. In fact, it has been used as a form of traditional medicine in Eastern Europe and Western Asia cultures for over 2,000 years! Here’s what else you need to know about Black Seed Oil, as well as all the major benefits it provides. 

#1 High in antioxidants

As mentioned earlier, Black Seed Oil contains high levels of thymoquinone, which has been shown to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. So what does this mean for you?

When ingested orally, Black Seed Oil helps to protect your cells from free radical damage caused by external aggressors, such as UV exposure, stress and pollution. This in turn, helps to support skin health.

Currently going through a bout of breakouts? Soothe your troubled skin by applying Black Seed Oil topically. Its anti-inflammatory properties will kick in to give your vulnerable skin the extra layer of care it needs.

#2 Alleviates common cough and cold symptoms naturally

Another effect of Black Seed Oil is that it can help with alleviating cough and flu symptoms. Even if you’re not taking this supplement regularly, having it in your medicine cabinet can come in useful during flu seasons, especially if you prefer using natural alternatives for milder symptoms. 

#3 Can be applied directly onto skin or mixed into your skincare products

There are many applications of Black Seed Oil in traditional medicine, one of which is to aid digestion. If you’re suffering from indigestion, or have just sat through an exceptionally heavy meal, take 2 capsules of Black Seed Oil for relief.

Not all supplements are created equal. Blackmores Ultra Refined Black Seed Oil is made with pure black seed oil, which is extracted using a cold-pressed method to minimise the loss of nutrients in the production process. In doing so, it is able to ensure that each capsule contains 500mg of cold-pressed black seed oil, which equates to about 15mg of thymoquione!

Our favourite part about this is its dual usage – it can be taken orally and apply on skin topically! Which other supplement can protect your skin both on the inside and outside like this?

For oral consumption, there’s not much effort needed to start supplementing your diet with Ultra Refined Black Seed Oil - all you need to do is just take 2 easy-to-swallow capsules a day.

Thinking of applying black seed oil topically to your skin? Just take note that not all black seed oil can be applied directly on your body. However, Blackmores Ultra Refined Black Seed Oil is specially formulated to be applied topically as well. Unlike others, it has low viscosity, fast absorbing and leaves no sticky residue! To apply topically, just cut the capsule to release the oil onto your palm or mix the oil into your skincare products. We recommend mixing it to your sleeping mask – we have used this method and love the effect!
