Future Pharm started out as a company that only sold an all-natural turmeric extract, more recently improving the formula with liposomes and nanotechnology. When we introduced our Wild Oil of Oregano with ROSEMARY, those familiar with oil of oregano were thrilled, but most weren’t familiar with all it had to offer. Fast forward a year, and now our WOOO (Wild Oil of Oregano) product is as popular as our turmeric, and demand is growing. Likely this is due to Wild Oil of Oregano’s increased popularity over the past year or so as more people discover the many benefits of this natural extract. Here are 5 reasons why Oil of Oregano is gaining in popularity.

WOOO is a powerful antimicrobial

It’s best known for its impact on colds and flus as it’s a powerful antimicrobial. While carvacrol was more effective against certain viruses on its own, the oil was more effective against respiratory viruses, such as flu viruses. There’s also a study in the Journal of Applied Microbiology in which researchers exposed a mouse norovirus (a human norovirus surrogate) to oregano oil and carvacrol. Both treatments were effective against the virus, but carvacrol was better, inactivating the virus within one hour of exposure.

Oil of Oregano has antibiotic properties

Carvacrol and thymol have been found to play a strong role in oregano’s antibiotic activity, research has shown these compounds from oregano may kill up to 41 strains of the foodborne pathogen Listeria. What makes the carvacrol in oil of oregano particularly interesting as a natural antibiotic is that it is shown to destroy harmful bacteria while keeping helpful probiotic bacteria intact.

WOOO has anti-inflammatory benefits

Carvacrol has a powerful anti-inflammatory effect and has been proven to reverse or reduce bacterial infections, allergies, inflammation, and viruses. Scientists from Germany and Switzerland identified an active ingredient in oregano, known as beta-caryophyllin (E-BCP), which may help treat disorders such as osteoporosis and arteriosclerosis.

Oil of Oregano has anti-fungal benefits

 Oil of Oregano has been credited with boosting the immune system by cleansing the body of fungi, yeasts, bacteria and viruses. While many people know oregano oil for topical treatment of funguses, few know its benefit to the immune system.

WOOO may have anti-cancer properties

Several studies have shown that carvacrol may have cancer-fighting properties. In studies on cancer cells in test tubes, carvacrol has demonstrated promising results against lung, liver and breast cancer cells. It has also been found to inhibit cell growth and cause cancer cell death according to studies by Cytotechnology.
