Oregano has a large number of properties that can be of great help in improving many aspects of the body,

among which its antioxidant and antimicrobial properties stand out.

It is good for the digestive system

Then strain and drink when tempered. In general, oregano is a very beneficial medicinal plant for the conditions of the respiratory system due to its anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antiseptic effect.

Anti-inflammatory

Oregano has great anti-inflammatory power.

Scientists from the University of Bonn (Germany) and ETH Zurich (Switzerland) have identified oregano as an active ingredient,

known as beta-caryophylline (E-BCP), which can be useful against ailments such as osteoporosis and atherosclerosis.

Excellent antioxidant

Due to the large amount of phenolic acids and flavonoids it has.

It is also believed to have great power to eliminate viruses that can come through food contagion. The active ingredient in oregano is the flavonol retusin, and its oils are distinguished by having monoterpenoids and monoterpenes.

Fights bacteria

Oregano is a good ally against microbial activity.

Oregano oil, for example, is a powerful antimicrobial, because it contains an essential compound called carvacol.

According to Dr. Juan Ignacio Güenechea, its properties are so intense that it can even kill Staphylococcus aureus resistant to methicillin and other antibiotics.

How to use it

Oregano (Origanum vulgare) is more than just a pizza topping.

Its name means "the joy of the mountains", it has been used for millennia in natural remedies and is indispensable in Mediterranean cuisine.

It goes very well with salad dressings, or with cheeses, meats and eggs.

It can be used fresh, but the aroma of its leaves intensifies with drying.

Like other herbs, oregano loses its flavor with cooking, so it's best to add it at the end of the preparation.

Additionally, oregano, sometimes called "marjoram," contains potent phytochemicals that offer potential health benefits.
