is a very special anti-oxidant formula. What are
anti-oxidants? Simply put they are the good
scavengers roaming our bodies searching for free
radicals also known as toxins. Once found these
anti-oxidants try to neutralize and eliminate the
toxic substances, toxins may come from the
environment, food supplies and also waste from our
own cells. These toxins destroy cells causing a
large variety of problems such as suppressed immune
disorders and allergies.
The bark of the pine trees contain very special
bioflavonoid called proanthocyanidins.
Proanthocyanidins are considered to be one of the
most potent anti-oxidants available. Studies have
shown these bioflavonoid to have stronger
anti-oxidants properties than both vitamin E and
vitamin C. Anti-oxidants like pine bark work
synergistically with many substances found in our
body. These special bioflavonoid work well with many
different herbs especially immune enhancing ones
such as black seed. Black seed has many properties
that nourish the immune system in turn supporting
the whole body.

Allergy with Grape Seed/Pine Bark Extracts & Black Seed
Author: Agnes Bellegris
Spring rejuvenates and inspires us with hopes of warm
weather, laughter and outdoor fun. However, this perfect
scenario is not one that is realistic for people who suffer
from plant/pollen allergies - spring brings discomfort that
can last until fall. Appropriate anti-oxidant combination
help alleviate allergy misery naturally with no
uncomfortable allergy needles and no anti-histamine tablets
that dry you out.
Here is a simple science lesson that can help you balance
your system. Molecules in our bodies have a combination of
protons and electrons that need to remain balanced. When
electrons are removed or oxidized from the molecular
structure by free radicals (oxidizing agents), found in our
system and in our environment, the molecular structure is
de-stabilized. Cells are destroyed and enzyme formation is
altered, thus creating negative effects like allergies and
colds. Anti-oxidants block free radicals from doing this
damage. They protect natural enzymes and allow proper
functioning. We should ensure that our bodies contain enough
anti-oxidant to inhibit free radicals that cause the immune
system to over react to substances such as dust and pollen.
Bioflavonoid, commonly found in citrus fruit and vegetables,
are powerful carriers of anti-oxidants but here is another
extremely effective bioflavonoid present in pine tree bark
or grape seed extract called proanthocyanidins. Tests
indicate it to be 50 times more effective than Vitamin E and
20 times more than Vitamin C, it serves as an excellent
anti-inflammatory, anti-histamine, anti-allergen and
anti-haemorrhage. Anti-oxidant combinations and immunity
boosting substances found in plants and herbs work together
creating maximum body functioning. The ultimate combination
for the prevention of seasonal allergies consists of
proanthocyanidins and a herb called black seed.
Black seed has been used for centuries to treat arthritis,
bronchial asthma, parasitic infections, gastrointestinal
ailments, improve liver, kidney and circulatory system
functioning and increase resistance to diseases. The active
ingredient in black seed is Nigellone, which not only helps
prevent histamine-induced broncho spasm, it also serves as
an anti-tumour agent. Allergic reactions are caused by an
impaired immune system and the usual medications do not cure
the cause only the symptoms. The combination of
proanthocyanidins from pine bark or grape seed extract and
black seed in capsule form, available at health food stores,
is excellent for strengthening the immune system and
minimizing allergic reactions. These natural substances work
together to free the body of oxidizing agents and increase
the immune systems’ ability to ward off unwanted bacterial
The result is a decrease in allergic reactions and a reduced
risk of chronic illness. Spring cleaning must begin from
within. Take a deep breath, enjoy the fresh Air and have an

seed: why it should be included in your daily diet?
Many wonderful helping
plants surfaced when the cultures of our world started to
share trade and teach their herbal medicines to each other.
One such plant was Nigella Sativa commonly known as black
seed. This mild aromatic herb is indigenous to the Middle
East where it has been used as a traditional remedy for over
2000 years. It was used so extensively that it became known
as the seed of blessing “Habbatul Barakah”.
In the 13th century, the Arabic physician Ibn Kaym claimed
black seed could be used for over 50 ailments such as
Bronchial Asthma, Bronchitis and other diseases of the
respiratory tract. Also, inflammation reduction, Arthritis
relief, correction of digestive disorders, constipation
relief, fighting parasitic infestations, detoxification and
strengthening of the liver, increased energy and general
good health are among the many benefits from using black
At the 71st annual meeting of the federation of American
societies for experimental biology, a report was issued
supporting some of the medicinal claims of Black seed. Some
medicinal response may be attributed to the increase of
immune enhancing T cells. This may support the black seed’s
role in balancing and strengthening the immune system.
One of the active ingredients found in black seed is called
Nigellone. This ingredient has shown the ability to produce
an anti-histamine response in the body. Studies have shown
the benefits of this anti-histamine response in children and
adults with bronchial asthma. Unlike most bronchial asthma
medicine, Nigellone produced no harmful side effects. A
study conducted by the Amala cancer research center in Amala
Nagar in India showed evidence that Black seed is a potent
antitumor agent. This study also showed that a long chain
fatty acid found in Black seed may be the active component.
THE CHEMICAL COMPOSITION
Black seed contains many active compounds as well as 15
amino acid proteins, carbohydrates, alkaloids, Saponins,
crude fibre, calcium, iron, sodium and potassium. Black seed
also contains 84% fatty acids including linoleic, linolenic
and oleic forms plus very special volatile oils. These
volatile oils contain important compounds that are
antibacterial and antifungal. The antibacterial properties
help inhibit the growth of several species of bacteria as
well as Candida. It is also suggested that this plant can be
helpful in preventing dental plaque.
Black seed can also be
combined with other substances to increase certain medicinal
responses. Black seed contains 23 different plant sterols.
These sterols can fit onto the hormone receptors in the
human body. This ability to fit onto the receptor sites may
be useful in relieving prostate inflammation and unpleasant
The seed is also known as a Galactogouge. This means it helps to increase the flow of
milk in lactating women. Black seed is a herb from the
middle east. It supports our bodies in so many different
ways. It is non habit forming and safe. Black seed works
well with many different herbs and natural substances. Black
Seed and Black Seed & Combinations in capsule form are
