The Importance of the Vagus Nerve


There are 12 cranial nerves in the body, some of which send sensory information, including details about smells, sights, tastes, and sounds, to the brain, and others which control the movement of various muscles and the function of certain glands, known as motor functions. The vagus nerve has both sensory and motor functions.

The gut is an important control center of the immune system and the vagus nerve is essential in the relationship between the gut, brain, and inflammation. The brain–gut axis is becoming increasingly important as a therapeutic target for gastrointestinal and psychiatric disorders, such as inflammatory bowel disease and depression, and the vagus nerve plays an important part in this relationship.

The vagus nerve is the main component of the parasympathetic nervous system, which oversees a vast array of crucial bodily functions, including control of mood, immune response, digestion, and heart rate.

Consistent use of Black Seed Oil has been known to significantly improve brain function associated with cognitive function, depression, epilepsy, memory and also prevents inflammation because it is loaded with polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are essential for protecting the nervous system against neuronal injury and/or disorders.
