What is it about?

Macrocytic hypochromic anaemia, thrombocytopenia, leucopenia, neutrophilia, lymphopenia, monocytosis and eosinophilia were observed following NP exposure together with increase in morphological erythrocyte alterations and micronuclei formation. Elevation in total peroxide and malondialdehyde and depletion in total antioxidant capacity of blood lysate were reported. We concluded that supplementation of NSS markedly ameliorated the previously listed manifestations, and the most effective doses were 25 and 50 g/kg feed.

Why is it important?

Supplementation with NSS according to the data of this preliminary research protected Clarias gariepinus against NP haematotoxicity by amelioration of oxidative stress.


Hazrat Abu Hurayrah, may Allah be pleased with him (رضي الله عنه), narrated that the Prophet sall Allaahu alayhi wa sallam ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) said: “Use this Black Seed regularly, because it is a cure for every disease, except death.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
