Nigella sativa, also known as black cumin, black seed, kalonji and haba al-barakah has been in the news lately due to being advertised as a weight-loss miracle oil.
Nigella sativa was never meant to be used primarily for weight-loss, it is a miracle herb for MS, diabetes, migraines, asthma, hair loss and even as a parasite cleanser, but "weight-loss?"
However Nigella sativa does have anti-inflammation properties and will increase your metabolism and even has some anorexia properties.
Nigella Sativa for Weight-Loss
Prophet Mohammad stated, "There is healing in Black Seed for all diseases except death.” Although when most think of this very important statement, few think of weight-loss as a disease, but it could be and is for many.

Various Recipes Available on the Web for Weight-Loss Using Nigella Sativa

In this website, they are asking you to drink a glass of warm water with lemon juice first thing in the morning and then swallow 3 to 5 mg of kalonji seeds. After that you are asked to eat some honey. Kalonji is a native seed to India. The best honey to use is raw honey and the best type of honey is Manuka honey, but not required.
Case Studies Involving Nigella Sativa and Weight-Loss
When considering which plan will grant you the ultimate weight loss consider what educational or government studies have reported.
Sadly there are very few case studies on the effect of Nigella sativa and weight-loss. There were two studies reported -- One was in Jordan and another one in Indonesia. The one in Indonesia reported:
A double blinded, placebo controlled experimental clinical trial was carried out in Indonesia, on adult men with central obesity which aimed to study the efficacy of Nigella sativa in central on serum free testosterone, body weight, waist circumference, blood sugar, lipid, uric acid, adiponectin, hs-CRP, and side effects .
A dose of 1.5 gm powder of Kalonji (in two capsules) was given twice a day for three months, which resulted highly significant reductions in
