Great source of antioxidants
Nine types of antioxidants are present in White cumin (white zeera) which includes Manganese, Copper, Zinc, Selenium, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Lutein, Vitamin B9 and Beta Carotene. It possesses the antimicrobial and antiparasitic properties which is effective for curing the fever. It eliminates the oxidative stress and inhibits diseases. White Cumin is also used for treating the diseases such as vitiligo and hyperglycemia.
2. Antimicrobial activity
The essential oil which is extracted from the White cumin fruit restricts the antifungal activity adjacent to yeast and dermatophytes. The dose of 5 ml. eliminated the fungus named Trichophyton rubrum. It is less obstructable for the phytopathogens.
The research suggests that the presence of chemopreventive properties helps to balance the metabolism of carcinogen. The Hela cells were destructed by 79% with the 0.1 m L/mL of concentration. The cytotoxic activity was contributed by the antioxidant activity. When the study on subchronic toxicity was conducted on the rats, it showed that there was decrease in WBC by 25.55%, hemoglobin, hematrocrit by 14.24% and platelets count was increased by 108.81%.
White Cumin (white zeera) raised the decreased level of phospholipase and phospholipids activity in the kidney and livers. The study shows that the cumin has the ability to reduce the level of lipid in oxidized oil and alcohol which also helps to persuade hepatotoxicity.
