Special Issue on Nigella sativa and its Constituents: Pharmacology, Toxicology and Analysis Findings
Call for paper
Nigella sativa (black seed) is a spice plant belonging to the family Ranunculaceae. It is an annual grassy plant with green-to blue-colored flowers and black seeds. The main pharmacologically active constituents of its volatile oil are thymoquinone, dithymoquinone, thymohydroqunone, thymol, alpha-pinene, ρ-cymene, carvacrol and carvone. Many investigations have evaluated the useful effects of Nigella sativa and its constituents on different diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, skin eruptions, asthma, COPD and bronchitis.
