Oregano, which means 'mountain joy', has been described as the "spice of life". Let’s look at what makes oregano worthy of being called a green superfood...

It’s packed with antioxidants

Did you know that, of all the spices, oregano has the highest amount of antioxidants? Antioxidants help towards supporting the immune system and are good for the skin. They also help the body by neutralizing and removing free radicals from the bloodstream. Free radicals are unstable atoms that can damage cells, causing illness and ageing.

It’s a great source of vitamin K

Vitamin K benefits your body in several ways:

  • Heart health

Vitamin K can help keep the body’s blood pressure low. It does this by preventing minerals from building up in the arteries. This allows the heart to pump blood freely through the body.

  • Cognitive health

According to this study, increased levels of vitamin K in the blood have been linked with improved episodic memory in older adults.

  • Bone health

It’s been suggested that vitamin K supports the maintenance of strong bones, improves bone density and decreases the risk of fractures.

It contains antibacterial properties

Oregano oil contains an essential compound called carvacrol, which has antimicrobial properties.

It's been suggested that the essential oil of Himalayan oregano has strong antibacterial properties. These properties could protect against the hospital superbug, MRSA!
