Moss Nutrition Oil of Oregano is a premium quality oregano extract derived from the fresh leaves of Origanum vulgare. Oregano is rich in naturally-occurring phytochemicals (antioxidants, tannins, volatile oils and phenolic compounds) that offer powerful antimicrobial and antifungal properties.
The phenolic monoterpenes carvacrol and thymol (an isomer of carvacrol) are considered the primary biocidal compounds in oregano. Research suggests carvacrol exerts considerable effects on both the structural and functional properties of cytoplasmatic membrane, indicating specificity against biofilm-forming microorganisms, systemic and superficial fungal overgrowths such as Candida albicans , and other pathogenic manifestations. Oil of Oregano may be taken alone or in combination with other products such as ParaBotanic Select.
Herbalists and holistic medical practitioners have long considered oregano oil a first line defense against bacteria and fungi in the gastrointestinal tract and throughout the body. In traditional usage, the oil also has been applied topically.
