Oil of Oregano - Botanical Immune Protector


[Aromatic Mediterranean Herb | Carvacrol | Broad Spectrum | References]

Traditional cultures, without the benefits of modern research, somehow understood that culinary spices and herbs added more to food than flavor. They knew certain spices and herbs were important for health and longevity. Today, science has identified the unique compounds responsible for these benefits.

One culinary herb with profound health­-promoting properties is oregano. This botanical treasure was used internally and externally by the ancient Greeks to restore balance to the body, especially the respiratory system. Now research is verifying oregano's potent immune-supporting activity against foreign organisms. This is crucial today, when international travel and globalized food supplies increase our exposure to unsanitary conditions.

Unlike some products, Source Naturals OIL OF OREGANO is prepared from true oregano, Origanum vulgare, standardized to 70% carvacrol. This is the highest concentration available of the active biochemical that gives oregano its broad spectrum immune support.

Oregano: Aromatic Mediterranean Herb

Many culinary spices and herbs have long been recognized for their health-promot­ing properties. For example, turmeric (a source of curcumin) is important for a healthy liver, ginger (with gingeroles) supports digestion, cayenne offers cardiovas­cular support, and rosemary is a potent cleansing herb.

Origanum vulgare, an aromatic Mediterranean herb, has historically been used as a natural protective compound. The Greeks named this hardy perennial oregano (joy-of-the-mountains). Their health practitioners relied on it for lung support and tissue repair. Over the cen­turies, oregano gained widespread use for respiratory health.

It's the Carvacrol that Counts

Source Naturals Oil OF OREGANO is made from the original wild species of oregano, grown without pesticides and extracted without harmful chemicals. It is standard­ized to 70% carvacrol, the highest amount available. Carvacrol, one of oregano's most active constituents, is a strong phenol (an acidic compound with cleansing properties), and is the subject of much research into its immune-supporting activity.

Other oregano species on the market, for example, Thymus capitus or Mexican sage, are not active because they contain insuffi­cient or no carvacrol. Many products are not standardized or fail to specify the percentage of carvacrol they contain.

Broad Spectrum Production

Oil of oregano has been extensively researched with extremely positive results. Daily supplementation was found in one human study to support intestinal health by protecting against foreign organisms. Oregano also has antioxidant properties, according to in vitro studies. Its phenols inhibited lipid peroxidation of LDL cholesterol in human plasma. Oregano oil has greater activity than a wide variety of other essential oils in protecting food from contamination, according to in vitro studies. Its principle components were found to damage the cell membranes of invading organisms.

Studies show oregano oil protects against many different organisms. This is significant, not only for its immediate health benefits, but also because current research shows foreign organisms can cause long­term irritation and stress to organs such as the heart and brain.
