Take half a teaspoon of the oil in a cup of black tea every morning, and see the difference in a few weeks. An effective dose of kalonji for weight loss appears to be 1–3 grams per day of the powder or 3–5 mL of the oil ( 6, 7). Some test-tube studies have found that kalonji may have antibacterial properties and be effective at fighting off certain strains of bacteria.

Effects of the volatile oil of Nigella sativa seeds on the uterine smooth muscle of rat and guinea pig. There doesn’t appear to be a difference between kalonji seed powder or oil in terms of weight loss effectiveness.

However, the powder appears to be more effective than the oil for increasing HDL (good) cholesterol, possibly related to the powder’s higher concentration of heart healthy fats ( 12).
