Organic Black Cumin Seed Press Cake has a long history of use in horses

History of Use - Black Cumin Seeds

Black Cumin Seeds have a long-standing tradition of use around the world dating back centuries. Primarily in the regions of the world where Black Cumin Seeds (Nigella Sativa) grow naturally, these seeds have been an integral part of the daily lives of both humans and animals alike. In more recent years, the western world has begun to realize the amazing benefits of this potent superfood. As evidenced in the countless peer reviewed research articles published today, Black Cumin Seeds have become a point of interest for both university academics and the holistic health seeker. 

Black Cumin Seeds - Research

Research published in the Indian Journal of Animal Sciences in 2018 highlights the local tradition of including black cumin seeds in horses' diets. The study examines the feed resources, feeding practices, and nutritional status of horses in four major horse-rearing areas of the Budgam district. The study involved interviews with equine-keeping families and analysis of the feeds and fodders provided to the horses. Nigella sativa (black cumin) is mentioned as part of a blend of several spicy ingredients, locally called 'masala', which was fed to horses. The traditional belief behind feeding this blend is that it helps to maintain body temperature and appetite, removes infection from the intestines, and maintains intestinal health. (1)

Organic Black Cumin Seed Press Cake Benefits for Horses

Black Cumin Seed Cake users have reported other benefits too!

So Shiny Now! - Pamela C, Washington

“Since starting the Black Cumin Seed Press Cake, our horse and donkey coats are so shiny!  With the Flax Seed Press Cake, their gut sounds have never been better and manure always looks fantastic!” 

Great Product! - Matthew B, Ohio

“We train colts for barrel racing and when they come in I put them on Black Cumin Seed Press Cake first feeding to help them cope with the new environment.”

Whole Seeds vs Seed Cakes

So what’s better, Whole Seeds or Seed Cakes? The most important factor in nutritional science is nutrient bioavailability, the availability of nutrients (i.e. vitamins, minerals, protein, etc) to be used by the cells of the body. Food and supplements have a long way to go from being eaten to being absorbed by cells inside of the body. The challenge with whole seeds is that they often make it through the entire GI tract intact without ever being broken down enough to release their prized nutrients and be absorbed by the cells. Seed Cakes or Press Seed Cakes is what is left over after some of the oil of the seeds has been extracted. This process transforms these tiny ridgid seeds into a digestion-friendly composition allowing the consumer of the seed cakes to reap the many benefits contained in this potent superfood. 

Miracle Product - Lori K, Washington

“I want to recommend the wonderful Organic Black Cumin Seed Press Cake! My boys absolutely love it! I have 2 horses - one is 20 and the other is 10, and 2-24 y.o. mini donkeys. I have been using the Black Cumin Seed Press Cake for 6 weeks and have noticed a profound improvement in the quality and appearance of their hair coats. Also, my chubby boy is now slimming down (I haven't changed anything else in his routine). You have to try this for yourself!”

Not All Seed Cakes Are The Same. How to Choose the Best Seed Cakes.

Process matters, Black Cumin Seed Press Cake is no exception. The process the whole seeds go through that eventually ends up in your horse's feed bucket can greatly impact the quality and nutrients of the Seed Cake. There are two primary factors to consider. 1) the quality of the Nigella Sativa (Black Cumin Seeds) the process starts with; and 2) the pressing process that extracts some of the oil.

Things to look for:

  1. Feed-Grade / Human-Grade (even better!)
  2. USDA Certified Organic Raw Ingredients
  3. USDA Certified Organic Facility
  4. Composition of the Seed Cake, Does your seed cake look like a compressed tube of powder or does it look like flakes?

So Far So Good - Susan S, Vermont

“I am desperate to help my horses deal with the flies and ticks here in VA. A former riding coach suggested I try cumin seed cake and told me to buy from you. So I have two horses, one who hardly had any bites at all and my poor chestnut who is covered in bites from the tip of his ears to the top of his hooves. He does wear a sheet, but doesn’t like it and that is the only place he is not completely covered in bites. I bought some garlic because my new riding instructor has friends that swear by it. So I started giving my TB garlic (the horse with few bites), and my picky Hanoverian chestnut cumin seed. First of all, my chestnut liked the cumin, and he is very picky about what he will eat. He turned his nose up at the garlic and refused to touch his feed when I accidentally switched buckets with the TB, and he took one whiff of the bucket and dug into his hay. I have been feeding the chestnut for about two weeks, 10 mg a day. The bumps on his legs have largely disappeared, and the bumps that were covering his face and neck are fewer than before. Now my poor TB is covered all over his face with itchy bumps and has bumps all over his legs since being on the garlic. I started him on the cumin yesterday. So we shall see how things go. I am hoping this stuff will do the trick for both of them.”

Wouldn’t Go Without It! - Annie B, Washington

“This product has been a staple in my feed routine since I tried it! My horses and mules are healthier than ever, their coats and hooves look absolutely fantastic. I can't recommend this product enough!”

Thank You So Much! - Machel J, New Mexico

“Usually at this time of year I've got fly traps, fly spray, fly masks, and fly predators all working together. Some flies still light on the horses, including in the corners of the horses eyes; however, it's a drastically reduced number. No flies are landing on the manure. The horses love, love, love, their new feeding routine. Pepito, who was starting to knuckle over in his back pasterns is no longer showing this tendency. He is moving with a lot of spunk in his step. No indication of pain or knuckling or lameness. The weight and sheen on all the horses is continuing to look much better. I am happy with the shifts I am seeing so far.”
