Organic oil of oregano (Origanum vulgare leaf), Organic cold pressed extra virgin olive oil.
Oregano, or Origanum vulgare, is a small, bushy plant that belongs to the mint family. It contains high levels of important compounds in its leaves and smaller stems. It’s processed by drying the leaves and stems, then steam-distill the plant matter to extract as many compounds as possible. Oregano oil contains carvacrol, the main active compound in oregano oil and a type of antioxidant called a phenol thymol, which may help protect against toxins and fight fungal infections
Thanks to the high levels of carvacrol, oregano oil may help fight certain types of bacteria. Taking oregano oil supplements or rubbing it on the skin may help a person make use of these antibacterial effects. Oregano oil may help treat chronic bacterial issues, such as SIBO. People with SIBO experience gastrointestinal problems due to an overgrowth of certain bacteria in their intestines. Oregano oil also appears to be a potent antifungal agent thanks to high levels of thymol, making it effective in helping with conditions such as oral thrush, yeast infections, infected toenails or fingernails and athlete’s foot. It’s also a potent antioxidant; antioxidants help protect the body from damage caused by oxidative stress and free radicals. Some sources claim that oregano oil may help reduce inflammation & may be an effective pain reliever. Applying diluted oregano oil to the skin may help protect smaller cuts and scrapes on the skin as they heal. Compounds such as thymol and carvacrol could protect these types of wound from bacterial infections.
Oregano is also power-packed with fiber. Eating it regularly may boost our digestive system, adding bulk to our stool and stimulating peristaltic motion, which moves food through the digestive tract and excretes it efficiently.
