Oregano oil and colitis
One study, published in the prominent journal Experimental and Toxicologic Pathology, actually shows how oregano oil can benefit a number of systems within the human body. Finding that the oil could help negate the effects of induced colitis in rats, the information also suggests that oregano oil could therefore be highly beneficial to maintaining and improving the health of the colon and the liver. This is of considerable importance, of course, due to the fact that the colon and the liver must both be functioning normally in order to obtain optimum health.
Recent Research on Oregano Oil
Research on Oregano Oil
Studies have shown oregano oil’s ability to fight candida albicans, aspergillus mold, staph infections, vaginal infections, pseudomonas and listeria. A study from the US Department of Agriculture showed that oregano essential oils presented antimicrobial activities against Salmonella and E.coli. Other studies have had similar results, finding that oregano oil is such a powerful antimicrobial that it can be used to preserve food! Studies from the Department of Food Science at the University of Tennessee found similar results for oregano oil’s antibacterial action on pathogenic germs.
A recent study from the Department of Physiology and Biophysics at Georgetown University Medical Center, stated the following in regard to the role of essential oils for infections:
- “New, safe antimicrobial agents are needed to prevent and overcome severe bacterial, viral, and fungal infections. Based on our previous experience and that of others, we postulated that herbal essential oils, such as those of origanum (oregano oil)…offer such possibilities.”
In an article published on Science Daily, oil of oregano was found to be effective in killing Staphylococcus bacteria. It was also equally as effective in its germ-killing abilities as common prescription antibiotics.
