OREGANO OIL: A POWERFUL ANTIMICROBIAL FOR A HEALTHY IMMUNE SYSTEM
Oregano oil is a natural antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal medicine that has a wide range of health benefits. It has been mainly used to treat respiratory and immune system health but it also has been known for helping prevent and treat infections.
Oregano oil can be applied topically or ingested. However it is too potent to use full strength because it can irritate your skin and cause stomach upset. Oregano oil must be diluted in water or used with a carrier oil. Olive or coconut oils are the best when taking oregano oil internally. Jojoba oil works well when applying to the skin. A ratio of one part oregano oil to three parts carrier oil is best.
Oregano oil contains the highest amount of phenols than all the aromatic plants and has three times the antioxidant levels of blueberries.
Oregano is not just used as a food flavor enhancer. The oil of oregano is a serious medicine that can treat a variety of illnesses. Don’t forget to purchase authentic wild mediterranean oil of oregano. Some manufacturers sell oregano that does not provide any health benefits.
OREGANO OIL CONTAINS FOUR MAIN GROUPS OF CHEMICALS WHICH ARE ACTIVE HEALING AGENTS.
Phenols including carvacrol and thymol. They act as antiseptics and antioxidants. Terpenes including pinene and terpinene. They possess antiseptic, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and anesthetic properties. Linalool and bonreol are two long-chain alcohols found in oregano oil. They exhibit antiviral and antiseptic properties. Esters include linalyl acetate and geranyl acetate. They exhibit antifungal properties. Although all these compounds possess healing properties, the most significant primary compound found in oregano oil is carvacrol. Scientific research has proved carvacrol to be one of the most effective antibiotics known to science.
Real wild Mediteranean Oregano needs to be either of origanum vulgare kind, or Thymus capitatus, which mostly grows in Spain. It is very important to make sure the Oil of Oregano is derived from these two kinds. It also has to have the carvacrol concentration of 70% or more. Most importantly, oregano essential oil does not create harmful strains in the body and does not have side effects the pharmaceutical antibiotics do. Moreover, it is effective against a dangerous and even deadly bacteria, but does not produce biological changes in the body. Oregano essential oil nourishes the body and doesn’t deplete it of nutrients like conventional antibiotics do. And if you look at the statistics, people in the Mediterranean live longer for the most part. Maybe partly because of oregano which is added to most Mediterranean dishes!
