Cumin may be helpful for people trying to their manage body weight.
A 2015 study involving adults with overweight compared
the weight loss effects of cumin with those of a weight loss medication and a placebo.
After 8 weeks, the researchers found that both
the cumin and the weight loss medication groups lost significant amounts of weight.
People in the cumin group also experienced a decrease in insulin levels.
Another study from 2014 found that women with overweight
and obesity who consumed 3 grams (g) of cumin powder in yogurt every day for 3 months had significant decreases in body weight,
waist size, and body fat.
The aforementioned study involving women with
overweight and obesity also found that consuming 3 g of cumin powder per day resulted in lower levels of total cholesterol,
lower low-density lipoprotein, or “bad,” cholesterol, and triglycerides.
Those who consumed the cumin powder also had higher levels of high-density lipoprotein, or “good,” cholesterol.
A 2017 study in adults with type 2 diabetes looked at the effects of cumin essential oil on blood sugar levels.
Study participants received either 100 milligrams (mg) of cumin oil per day,
50 mg of cumin oil per day, or a placebo.
After 8 weeks, both cumin oil groups had significantly reduced blood sugar,
insulin, and hemoglobin A1c levels. These are all markers of good diabetes management.
The cumin oil groups also saw improvements in signs of insulin resistance and inflammation.
However, other human studies using black cumin seeds have shown mixed results,
according to a 2017 review of studies.
More research is necessary to confirm the benefits of cumin essential oil for those with diabetes.
