Oregano is an aromatic herb, most known for being an ingredient of Italian cuisine, but it can also be concentrated into oil, full of antioxidants and strong compounds that have proven health benefits. It is interesting that oregano oil is an efficient natural antibiotic and antifungal agent that can help you lose weight and reduce cholesterol levels.
Oregano contains compounds, called phenols, terpenes, and terpenoids. These have strong antioxidant properties and are responsible for oregano's pleasant aroma.
Carvacrol: phenols in oregano is proven to stop various types of bacteria and has an analgesic effect.
Thymol: it's a natural antifungal agent that can support the immune system and protect you from toxins.
Rosemary acid: this strong antioxidant helps to protect from damage caused by free radicals. It also prevents inflammations.
Oregano oil, as said, is a strong antioxidant. Antioxidants help protect your body from the damage caused by free radicals. Damage caused by free radicals has a role in aging and the development of certain serious diseases.
Free radicals are everywhere and are a natural product of metabolism. They can accumulate in the body due to exposure to environmental factors, such as cigarette smoke, air pollution, or stress.
An older in vitro study compared the content of antioxidants in 39 common herbs and discovered that oregano has the highest concentration of antioxidants. They discovered that oregano contained 3-30 times more antioxidants than other herbs, such as thyme, marjoram, and St John's wort, and up to 42 times more antioxidants than apples and four times more antioxidants than blueberries.
Oregano oil also positively affects digestion, as it helps to remove intestinal parasites and soothes an irritated stomach. It also accelerates the metabolism, stimulates digestion, and restores normal appetite.
In times of menstruation, oregano oil reduces pain and menstrual cramps and supports a normal menstrual cycle.
Since the oregano oil extract is very concentrated, you need a lot less oil to gain the same antioxidant properties provided by fresh oregano.
