Methods: Databases such as PubMed, Science Direct, Scopus, and Google Scholar were used.
Results: The orientation towards this type of research has become more accentuated to enhance and detail the pharmacological properties of medicinal, aromatic plants.
Conclusion: The present review reveals and combines the experimental research studies carried out to demonstrate the central effects of Nigella.
