Thumbs up Oregano Benefits

Benefits of oregano as an antioxidant, for digestive conditions, and bacterial and viral infections.



Quote:
The USDA ranks oregano's antioxidant capacity anywhere from 3 to 20 times higher than any other herb. Oregano has four times the antioxidant power of blueberries, 12 times that of oranges and 42 times greater than apples.

Oregano oil has been classically used as a disinfectant, an aid for ear, nose, & throat/respiratory infections, candida, and any sort of bacterial or viral conditions. Additionally, it works to suppress inflammatory mediators and cancer cell production. Oregano oil is more potent than the dried herb; however, the dried version still contains many powerful health benefits.

Studies have shown that carvacrol, a phenol anti-oxidant within oregano has powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial activity when applied to food or taken in supplement form. Oregano also contains rosmarinic acid which has very strong cancer fighting properties.

Tony the herbalist has a youtube video on making your own oregano oil suppliment. Worlds cheaper than buying it pre-made, plus you can choose the carrier oil.

May I recommend, that if you "grow your own" you consider growing the oregano in pots for they take over quickly.
