Oregano: it’s not just for cooking. This Italian herb, similar to common herbs such as ginger, garlic, rosemary, and turmeric, possesses properties that are more pronounced when concentrated, and when the essential elements are extracted. Oregano oil extracts have been traditionally used in botanical medicine to support gut health by promoting intestinal cleansing and balancing the gut bacteria. Additionally, oregano oil provides highly valued antioxidant benefits. This product’s active ingredients are carvacrol and thymol. Each softgel provides 36mg of carvacrol and thymol.
Oil of oregano is an effective aid to support the immune system’s natural defenses against the growth of yeast, fungi, and harmful bacteria. Its usage is popular as part of a regimen aimed at promoting intestinal health and a more balanced and healthy gut microbiota. Oregano oil is also an excellent source of antioxidants, as it can counteract free radicals that contribute to rapid cell aging and degradation in the body. Rosemarinic acid, one of oil of oregano’s antioxidant components, incredibly supports a healthy immune system and anti-inflammatory response. Additionally, oil of oregano contains other relevant antioxidants, including hydroxycinnamic acid, p-hydroxyhydrocaffeic acid, and labiatic acid.
To prevent gastrointestinal irritation due to concentrated essential oils, the oregano oil in this product is blended with olive oil as a carrier. This emulsification process increases the surface area of the essential oil particles which allows for smaller amounts to be more effective. This is especially beneficial as it enables the oil to reach more of the small intestine’s inner surface, where it has the most impact.
