COVID-19 Herbs And Phytochemicals: Yet another review study has emerged that confirms that the phytochemical Thymoquinone found in Nigella Sativa seeds is able to treat COVID-19.

Nigella sativa (Black caraway, also known as black cumin, nigella or kalonji) is an annual flowering plant in the family Ranunculaceae, native to Western Asia and also parts of South East Asia including Northern Thailand.
Nigella sativa (N. sativa) has been used as a traditional remedy for many centuries. The seed possesses a large variety of phytochemical compounds with thymoquinone (TQ) considered its major but not sole bioactive constituent. The seeds of the plant, Nigella sativa, have been used for centuries as a traditional remedy for multiple medical conditions, including inflammation and infections.
Numerous past animal and human studies indicate a potential role of N. sativa seed oil and TQ for a diverse range of disease processes including hypertension, dyslipidaemia, type 2 diabetes mellitus, arthritis, asthma, bacterial and viral infections, neurological and dermatological disorders, as it belongs to the group of pan-assay interference compounds. T
This Thailand Medical News inspired Australian study led by the University of Technology-Sydney and also involved  researchers from the Australian Catholic University, ISRA University-Pakistan, Liverpool Hospital-Sydney and the University of New South outlines the pharmacological properties of N. sativa and thymoquinone or TQ and their potential wide application for a large variety of human diseases. The research also focuses on recent studies of the anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties that make N. sativa and TQ promising therapeutic agents targeting contemporary inflammatory and infectious diseases including COVID-19.
The study findings were published in the peer reviewed journal: Clinical and Experimental Pharmacology and Physiology. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/1440-1681.13553
Thailand Medical News had also incorporated Nigella Sativa and the phytochemical  thymoquinone in our therapeutic teas since early 2020 https://www.thailandmedical.news/news/new-therapeutic-teas-
Thailand Medical News also covered the results of a randomized clinical trial study on the usage of Nigella Sativa to treat COVID-19 in November 2020. https://www.thailandmedical.news/news/covid-19-herbs-multicenter-randomized-controlled-trial-shows-that-nigella-sativa-and-honey-is-able-to-treat-moderate-to-severe-covid-19-patients
Lead author Professor Dr Kaneez Fatima Shad from the University of Technology Sydney told Thailand Medical News, "There is growing evidence from modeling studies that thymoquinone, an active in gredient of Nigella sativa, more commonly known as the fennel flower, can stick to the COVID- 19 virus spike protein and stop the virus from causing a lung infection. It may also block the 'cytokine' storm that affects seriously ill patients who are hospitalized with COVID-19."
The phytochemical thymoquinone has been extensively studied in laboratories, including animal studies. These studies have shown that thymoquinone can moderate our immune system in a good way, by preventing pro-inflammation chemicals such as interleukins from been released.
These study findings gives thymoquinone a potential role as a treatment for allergic conditions such as asthma, eczema, arthritis conditions including rheumatoid and osteoarthritis and even possibly multiple sclerosis.
The Australian review paper details the mechanisms of action of Nigella sativa and thymoquinone and how they are a promising future treatment of COVID-19 infection. There have been many barriers to the development of Nigella sativa as a therapeutic agent in large part due to its poor natural gastrointestinal absorption.

Co-author Dr Wissam Soubra who works at both University of Technology Sydney and University of New South Wales added, “Advances in pharmacological development such as nanotechnology have seen the chance to overcome this barrier to enable for its use as an effective oral medication. Furthermore, the drug has recently been successfully given to patients as a nasal spray and topical paste."
The herb Nigella sativa has been shown to be helpful in treating high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes mellitus. As an anti-inflammatory treatment, Nigella sativa has also been found to help patients with allergic rhinitis and sinusitis, eczema, osteoarthritis and childhood epilepsy.
The herb has also been proven to be effective in a laboratory environment in killing bacteria such as staphylococcus aureus that can cause a range of mild to severe infections if they enter the skin, and viruses including influenza.
Co author Associate Professor Dr Dennis Cordato from Liverpool Hospital-Sydney said, "The review paper provides insight into a natural product that has been used as a traditional remedy for over thousand years and may be finally receiving the recognition it deserves."
Thailand Medical News would however like warn that using single herbs or phytochemicals to inhibit the SARS-CoV-2 virus is not advisable as the SARS-CoV-2 is able to mutate rapidly to develop resistance. A more suitable approach is to adopt a ‘multi-pronged’ strategy of using a safe combination of various herbs and phytochemicals such as what we have done in our therapeutic teas. https://www.thailandmedical.news/news/new-therapeutic-teas-
It should also be noted that we are the first to encapsulate various phytochemicals and use them in our teas for better absorption. We dare claim that to date there is no other product that is close to our therapeutic teas.
Medical Disclaimer - Before taking any herbs or phytochemicals or supplements, always consult a licensed medical doctor (That is if they know anything!) and also divulge your existing medical comorbidities and drugs being taken as in some cases certain herbs and phytochemicals can cause adverse reactions or there might be contraindications.
