Lowering Glutamate | Black Cumin Seed

Black Cumin Seed (Nigella Sativa)– We have chosen to use black cumin seed oil to help lower glutamate levels.  I have it  linked in our medicine cabinet. “The secretion of different amino acids was studied in primary cultured cortical neurons by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) using a derivation before injection with dansyl chloride. NS modulated amino acid release in cultured neurons; GABA was significantly increased whereas secretion of glutamate, aspartate, and glycine were decreased. The in vitro findings support the hypothesis that the sedative and depressive effects of NS observed in vivocould be based on changes of inhibitory/excitatory amino acids [...]
