Melanin is a polymer found in most organisms acts as natural biological, antioxidants factor by reducing oxidative stress and inflammatory reaction of cells

Melanin is a polymer found in most organisms acts as natural biological, antioxidants factor by reducing oxidative stress and inflammatory reaction of cells. It is playing a vital role as an antioxidant agent as well as its scavenging activities on free radicals. Also, melanin acts as immunoprotective polymers preventing the tissues and cells via its absorbable acts against ultraviolet and/or other radiation and thus prevents any injured of the cells. Recently, melanin has been extracted from the Nigella sativa seeds (NSM) and thus researched for biomedical applications such as natural protective agent with therapeutic effectiveness and targeted as a natural therapeutic or drug delivery. This work presents a general view of NSM extracts as a promising agent due to its therapeutic outcomes using in vivo and in vitro methods. Using of this type of melanin could play an important role through the biological needs and/or could pave the way as an active field of research including biochemistry, biomedical, dermatological, cosmetic therapies and microbiological points of view, as well as health care industry.
