Thymoquinone for immunity: TriNutra highlights study showing its potential against viral challenges
08 Mar 2021 --- A new in vitro cell study on thymoquinone – a compound in Nigella sativa black seed oil – has revealed the substance could mitigate viral challenges and therefore support immunity.
Thymoquinone was compared against a variety of other well-known immunomodulating compounds, including curcumin.
The study published in Infectious Diseases and Therapy found to be the best performer, acting directly against specific aggressors to improve health outcomes.
“The study solidifies thymoquinone’s ability to strengthen cellular immunity and compares thymoquinone positively against other known immune support actives,” says Dr. Ken Redcross, medical professional who was not affiliated with the study, in response to the results.
“Thymoquinone, the main component of black seed oils like ThymoQuin, out-performed all other actives in the peer-reviewed publication.”
Developing for demand
The results of the study build upon past research pointing to health benefits from the black seed oil compound.
Last May, a clinical trial in the journal Food Science & Nutrition Research suggested that thymoquinone can have a positive impact on blood pressure and heart rate levels.
To meet the growing interest and demand, TriNutra spent years cultivating and developing a breed of Nigella sativa that has a higher thymoquinone content than is typical.
The company also spent five years developing its patented cold-press technology.
ThymoQuin is a black seed oil standardized to 3 percent thymoquinone with very low free fatty acid.
The all-natural and non-GMO ThymoQuin is positioned to be taken daily, offering the highest level of thymoquinone per dose in a full-spectrum oil, continues Dr. Redcross.
“Patented ThymoQuin also demonstrates the strongest antioxidant and inflammatory-regulating benefits found in a non-drug substance,” he adds.
In Tune with Immune
Black seed oil’s latest research follows industry’s ongoing deep dive into ingredients that can support immunity.
According to Innova Market Insights’ Consumer Survey 2020, six out of ten global consumers are increasingly looking for F&B products that support their immune health, with one in three saying that concerns about immune health increased in 2020 over 2019.
Increased interest in immunity has been spotlighted in Innova Market Insights Top Ten Trends for 2021: “In Tune with Immune.”
