As we head into cold and flu season, it’s a good idea to know what your options are for keeping yourself healthy. Oil of Oregano is a great option to consider. Here’s why oil of oregano is so good for you.

Carvacrol: the powerhouse in Oregano

Carvacrol is the reason that so many people benefit from using oil of oregano. Oregano is the best-known source of carvacrol and research has demonstrated that it has lots of potential healthy benefits.  Among other benefits, carvacrol is known to break through the outer cell membrane of bacteria, allowing them to be neutralized by the body’s immune system. The reason why oregano has antibiotic properties in its molecular structure is because of carvacrol. This substance has antibiotic properties which the bugs cannot become resistant to like conventional antibiotics.

Helping your immune system

Oil of Oregano is one of the best natural remedies if your immune system is fighting a cold virus, the flu, respiratory infections, or any other similar illnesses. This is because of its expectorant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiseptic and antioxidant properties. Oil of Oregano treats both the symptoms and the underlying infection that caused those irritating symptoms in the first place.

Allergy fighter

As if having a cold or flu isn’t bad enough, many people suffer from allergies. The soothing properties of Oil of Oregano can produce a sedating effect on the hypersensitivity of allergies, which ultimately encourages relief.

Prevents UTIs

Many people become dehydrated and don’t consume the fluids they should during this season, a perfect condition for a urinary tract infection to set in. A UTI happens when bacteria get into the urinary tract and multiply causing discomfort and pain.  Oil of Oregano has antibiotic properties that can help prevent UTIs by fighting those bugs.


It’s no secret that this is the time of year we don’t make good food choices. Holiday foods are everywhere and the temptation to eat the wrong foods is everywhere. Studies have shown that oregano oil may help lower cholesterol. The cholesterol-lowering effect of oil of oregano is thought to be the result of the phenols carvacrol and thymol.
