About Amazing Herbs
Amazing Herbs was the first company to introduce Black Seed oil as a dietary supplement over 25 years ago
Pioneers of the Ancient Herb
Waseem Goreja grew up in the US hearing many stories of the miraculous little black cumin (Nigella sativa) seed used to boost immunity and overall health in his family’s native homeland of Pakistan. In addition to Pakistan, black cumin seed has been used for thousands of years in Asia, the Middle East, and Europe. Waseem discovered that it was sometimes called 'Blessed Seed' because it was regarded as a "blessing for all illnesses". Today, it is used by people throughout the world both as a spice and a remedy.
Considering the potential health benefits and the unique opportunity to introduce a product to health-conscious consumers in America, Waseem and his father started producing and marketing nutritional supplements made with black seed in 1990. Since many people had not heard about black seed, Waseem had to educate consumers as well as health food store owners about the remarkable health benefits of black seed.
The Beginning of Amazing Herbs
In early 2000, Waseem and his father launched AmazingHerbs.com to get their products directly into the hands of consumers throughout the world. At the same time, an increased interest in black seed in the U.S. created an opportunity for Amazing Herbs to expand its products into more retail stores. By 2010, there were more than 6000 retail stores in the U.S. carrying Amazing Herbs brand black seed nutritional supplements and over 30,000 individual customers using the product.
Amazing Herbs is the original manufacturer of black seed health & nutritional supplements in the world. Being one of the first companies to introduce black seed to the health and nutrition industry in the United States, Amazing Herbs has been vital in promoting the health benefits of this remarkable oil. It is also a proud sponsor of the American Botanical Council's “Adopt-An-Herb” program for black seed.
All-Natural Manufacturing Process
We manufacture all our products, including our black seed oil, in our FDA-registered and inspected facility in Buford, GA. Amazing Herbs utilizes unique screw-type presses that gently squeeze (cold press) the oil from black seeds. This process ensures maximum preservation of the naturally occurring antioxidants and nutrients found in the seeds. Our process ensures the highest quality, 100% pure, all-natural, preservative- and adulterant-free black seed oil.
We guarantee the quality of our oil and all our products to ensure that they meet the highest standards. Every single batch of oil produced is sent to a third-party lab to confirm the identity of the plant, check for contaminants, and to verify active ingredient levels, especially thymoquinone (TQ).
Sourcing the Best
5XTQ is our trademarked moniker for our Premium Black Seed Oil as it naturally contains a higher percentage of thymoquinone (TQ) than any other black seed oil on the market. We've tested oils pressed from Nigella sativa seeds grown in various countries, like India, Syria, and Egypt, and discovered that they only contain a fractional percentage of TQ in contrast to the amount that is found in the oil pressed from seeds grown in Turkey.
Unlike other manufacturers who purchase seeds from the open market, the Nigella sativa seeds used for our black seed oil are exclusively grown for Amazing Herbs through sustainable and organic farming methods and grown without the use of fertilizers. Our seeds are non-genetically modified (non-GMO) and are not irradiated or treated with any pesticides such as EtO (which is common for seeds grown in countries like India).
