Oil of Oregano has powerful antioxidant and intestinal cleansing benefits. It also helps to maintain a healthy microbial balance. This product is standardized for carvacrol and thymol, the principal phenolic compounds in oregano, with each softgel providing 36 mg carvacrol and thymol from an impressive 60-75% carvacrol oregano oil.
The principal phenolic compounds in oregano—carvacrol [2-methyl-5-(1-methylethyl)phenol] and thymol (2-isopropyl-5- methylphenol)—are well known for their individual antibacterial properties, and when provided together as oregano oil, they have an additive effect. The oil of oregano in our product is emulsified in olive oil as a carrier in order to avoid irritation to the GI mucosa which can sometimes occur with the use of concentrated essential oils. Additionally, emulsification increases the surface area of the essential oil particles.
Oil of Oregano
Synergy with Olive Oil Concentrated essential oils can be irritating to gastrointestinal mucosa. To avoid this, the oil of oregano in this product is emulsified in olive oil as a carrier. Emulsification also increases the surface area of the essential oil particles, which means a smaller amount of the essential oil may be effective for coming into contact with more of the inner surface of the small intestine, which is where it exerts most of its effects.

Additionally, oil of oregano is prized for its powerful antioxidant protection. This product is standardized for carvacrol and thymol, the principal phenolic compounds in oregano, with each softgel providing 36 mg carvacrol and thymol from an impressive 60-75% carvacrol oregano oil.
