OREGANO OIL - (Origanum Vulgare) is well known in the Mediterranean world (Turkey and Greece) for its ability to slow down food spoilage through its anti-bacterial, anti- fungal, anti-parasitic and anti-oxidant activity.
The related herbs thyme and marjoram sold in most North American supermarkets are labeled incorrectly as oregano and possess little of wild oregano's miraculous healing properties. 'Isomeric phenols' (primarily carvacrol) in oregano oil in dilutions as low as 1/50,000 destroys Candida albicans, the Aspergillus mold, Staphylococcus, Campylobacter, Klebsiella, E.coli, Giardia, Pseudomonas, and Proteus. Another phenol constituent, thymol, boosts the immune system. These compounds also act as free radical scavengers (shield against toxins) thus preventing further tissue damage while encouraging healing. Oil of oregano is antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiparasitic.
It also has strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects and is an ideal product to use for people who suffer from CFS and/or fibromyalgia. This is not a regular oregano you are looking at, but a wild form (wild mountain oregano, Origanum Vulgare species) of the spice, which has, until recently, not been available in U.S. or Canada. Do not use a substitute or oregano from a grocery store because it will have no effect. Oil of oregano natural herbal supplement offers a variety of remedies.
True oil of oregano offers many exciting remedies to a variety of ailments. In "Herbal Renaissance", oregano is credited as having "been employed to treat indigestion, diarrhea, nervous tension, insect bites, toothache, earache, rheumatism, and coughs due to whooping cough and bronchitis (primarily for it's antispasmodic effects)."
Although there are a wide variety of plants that are confused with oregano (including marjoram, thyme, and sage) true oregano grows wild in Mediterranean regions such as Turkey. The wild oregano is the source of surprisingly potent oil of oregano.
