Oregano lat. Origanum vulgare is a marvel magic bullet against bacteriums and fungals and is considered to be a natural killer of germs. The ingredients of oregano are of high-value and versatile.

Oregano contains essential oil which is composed of different components. Oregano contains, in particular, a phenolic compound called carvacrol, known for its broad-spectrum, anti-infective properties, thus making it a highly effective anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and antiseptic agent. Modern science gives a lot of evidence for the effectiveness of thymol and carcavrol in oregano. Oregano affects antiseptic, antifungal and antiviral. Today oregano is known primariliy as an aromatic spice for pizza, but the healing effect of oregano survived up to now and is demonstrated through many scientific observations.

A number of studies have shown that oregano and carvacrol are able to kill a wide range of bacteria and fungi. Over 30 studies have been published on the anti-microbial properties of oregano. In particular, they have shown that:

Oregano inhibited, 19 of the 25 bacterial strains investigated.

Carvacrol demonstrated anti-fungal properties against Candida albicans and experimentally-induced oral Candida in immuno-deprived rats, suggesting it may represent an effective treatment for oral Candida.When tested on the yeast model Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the surface of treated cells was significantly damaged by Oregano. In mice, oregano was more effective than an antibiotic at fighting staphylococcus aureus infection. It also protected against infection in animals injected with Candida albicans. Even at a relatively low dose, oregano is as effective against staphylococcus bacteria as antibiotics such as penicillin, streptomycin and vancomycin; it may therefore represent an effective treatment against antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections.
