Nature's Antibiotic: Oil of Oregano
Cold and flu season is upon us and now is the time to step up the immune support! Enter nature’s most powerful natural antibiotic: Oil of Oregano.
Also known as liquid gold, oregano is commonly associated with cooking, pastas and marinades. However, you should keep this potent antioxidant not only in your kitchen but in your medicine cabinet, too!
Oil of oregano contains a compound called carvacrol, which has been shown to help break through the outer cell membranes that help protect bacteria from the immune system.
Due to its powerful antiviral properties, oil of oregano provides natural support to combat viruses, bad bacteria and kill off infection and free radicals.
Oil of oregano can also help heal the gut and assist your immune system in defending against fungi and fighting off parasites. This makes the oil an ideal staple to have when traveling and dining in different countries.
On its own, ingesting oil of oregano is spicy, strong and not the most pleasant, but sometimes the struggle is real and you gotta do what you gotta do. However, the next best thing to ingesting the oil straight is by incorporating it into a juice, like one of our pressed tonics Antibiotic, Antidote (ideal to prevent or when you feel a sore throat or other cold & flu symptoms coming on) and Candida (helps fight yeast and other fungal infections).
Anyone with an oregano allergy should not use oil of oregano. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should avoid oil of oregano, as it has not been tested in pregnant women. Always talk to your doctor before trying a new supplement or remedy!
