About Amazing Herbs
When the young W. Goreja was growing up in the US, he would always hear stories about a miraculous little seed that his parents and grand parents would use to boost their immunity and overall health in their native homeland of Pakistan. They would say that by chewing a few grains daily, it would ward off all sorts of illnesses. As he became older and started to inquire about this herb, he discovered that it was called "Black Seed" or "Blesses Seed" because it was regarded as a "blessing for all illnesses". What surprised him is that Black Seed was not only used by his elders but that it had been in use for thousands of years in Asia, Middle East and Europe, and was still being used by people throughout the world as a spice and remedy. When he realized that it might have even greater healing benefits, he began researching more about it and looking for a source of Black Seed in the United States, but soon discovered that nearly no one in the natural health industry had heard of it.
What amazed him was that although no one had heard about Black Seed, there was already research going on in the United States, Europe, and Africa about the health benefits of Black Seed and Black Seed Oil, some going as far back as the 1950's. All of the research showed remarkable results for various health benefits.
Considering the potential health benefits and the unique opportunity to introduce a product to health conscious consumers, W.G. and his late father started producing and marketing nutritional supplements made with Black Seed in 1990. Since not many people had heard about Black Seed, they started educating consumers about its remarkable health benefits. It took many years, but interest in Black Seed grew as more people began learning about it and using it to enhance their health. The scientific health community also became aware of the benefits of Black Seed and its active ingredients and hundreds of studies were published in various medical journals in the USA and around the world.
In early 2000, they launched AmazingHerbs.com. This was a major step for Amazing Herbs as it put their products into the hands of consumers throughout the world, with customers as far as United Kingdom, Australia, and South Africa.
