Oil of Oregano by North American Herb and Spice
Nowadays, there are many brands of oil of oregano available on the market. It can kill all types of
pathogens, including viruses, fungi, bacteria and parasites.
This substance also contains minerals, vitamins and trace elements that can help the body strengthen its
defenses against harmful microbes. It is recommended by alternative health practitioners all over the world because
it is more effective than most over the counter drugs and antibiotics.
However, not all oregano
oil brands are made from the oregano plant, which is the source of this most potent oil. But there is one
brand that you can be sure of. This is Oreganol, a proprietary brand of pure oil of oregano sourced from
the wild oregano plant, Origanum vulgare, harvested at its original habitat in the mountaintops
of certain Mediterranean countries. It is made by North American Herb & Spice, a leading manufacturer of
natural dietary supplements.
Why is Oreganol different from Other Brands?
Oregano oil varies in quality. Its potency depends on its source and the way it is processed. At present the oil
with the highest quality is Oreganol P73. This particular oil is extracted from the Mediterranean wild oregano that
is organically grown, free of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. It is 100% guaranteed to be pure
Mediterranean oregano, grown and harvested in its original pristine and untarnished wilderness. The picking of the
plants are actually controlled to preserve and protect the plants. The essential oil is extracted without using any
chemicals but just by cold-pressing. Then the essential oil is distilled. These kinds of production processes are
used in order to preserve the potent chemical substances contained in the oil.
Other commercially available oregano oil samples are routinely tested by North American Herb & Spice and most
often the results show that these other oils do not qualify as real oregano oil. They contain high levels of
monterpenes and reduced levels of thymol and carvacrol. With these kind
of components, they can be regarded as counterfeits and therefore useless in terms of healing and treating
Laboratory Tests Show Oreganol is an Effective Antimicrobial Agent
Scientists at the U.S.
Department of Agriculture have found that oreganol is higher in antioxidant levels than vegetables, fruits and even
spices. In the November issue of the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, Shiow Y. Yang, a biochemist, said
that “oregano had 3 to 20 times higher antioxidant activity than the other herbs studied.”
The American Cancer Society has stated that oregano is one of the world’s most powerful natural antioxidants. It
is very effective in inhibiting the growth of many types of bacteria, including the drug-resistant superbug MRSA.
An article in Medical News Today stated that oreganol outperforms 18 conventional
antibiotics in laboratory experiments. This beneficial substance has been the subject of countless studies and
laboratory experiments and has always been found to be effective in controlling and inhibiting the growth of
pathogens. And it does so without so much as leaving any long-term side effects.
Composition of Oreganol
The special components of oreganol are the reasons why it is more
effective than standard oregano oil. For instance, Oreganol P73 is a blend of wild oregano plants grown in their
natural habitat, with soils that are very rich in minerals. No chemicals are used in any of the process of
production, from planting to harvesting to extraction. After the process of extraction and distillation, the oil
undergoes further processing. It is emulsified with extra virgin olive oil to make it easier to be assimilated by
What makes oreganol many times more effective is the quantity of carvacrol and thymol it contains. These two
chemical substances are the two active agents of oregano oil. Together, they act synergistically to
help kill all harmful microbes. The ratio of these two is very important if this essential oil is to be
effective. In oreganol, the quantity of carvacrol is 64%, while thymol is only 5%. From their research, laboratory
scientists have proven that this is the best ratio for oregano oil to be effective in killing pathogens. Only
oreganol has this perfect blend making it 3 times more effective than other brands. Other commercially available
brands don’t have this exact ratio of components.
Apart from these two active ingredients, oreganol is also packed with highly potent flavonoids, phytochemicals
and phenols, in addition to the many vitamins, minerals and trace elements that it contains. With all these
beneficial substances, oreganol should really be considered as very high quality essential oil.
