Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is an inflammatory condition in which the immune system attacks the thyroid gland, usually causing destruction of the thyroid cells and low thyroid hormone levels. Nigella sativa is a plant that grows in Europe and Asia and has been used to treat inflammatory disorders. The goal of this study was to determine the effects of powdered black cumin on thyroid function and inflammation on patients with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
