Mohammed Ashif T, Muhammed Sajid EK, Mohammed Ajilan and Hafiz Farhan
Bunium persicum, commonly known as B. Fedtsch or Black cumin, is a commercially important medicinal spice that is widely utilized as a taste enhancer and preservative in various food systems. It's often employed in antispasmodic, carminative, anti-obesity, and lactogage products, suggesting that it has a lot of promise in medicine and food. It's also used to treat a variety of conditions, including digestive and urinary problems, as well as improving breast milk production. The high levels of oxygenated monoterpenes found in B. persicum essential oil, particularly γ- Terpinene, cuminaldehyde, ρ-cymene, and limonene, endow various proven therapeutic properties such as antimicrobial and anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetes, anti-perlipid and analgesic properties, anti-carcinogenic activities, and so on. This review provides an overview of the therapeutic benefits of black cumin, including antimicrobial, anti-oxidant, anti-parasitic, hypolipidemic and hypoglycemic effects, anti-inflammatory effects, and anti-diabetic effects, with the goal of attracting the attention of potential stakeholders to the immense potential and infinite qualities of black cumin.
