[] Fwd: Oregano Is a Wonderful Herb! It Offers So Many Benefits


The first thing that comes to mind when you hear the world 'oregano' is probably pizza. However, this commonly found herb has gained popularity as a natural remedy for a number of common health problems and as an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. These are some of the health benefits of oregano that you may not have known about.




Oregano is also an effective pain reliever and can be a great treatment for those that suffer from menstrual cramps.

Chew fresh oregano leaves three times a day to reduce the pain. You can also drink oregano tea for quick relief. To make the tea, mix one-half teaspoon of dried oregano in one cup of water and bring it to a boil over the stove. Strain it and add sugar to taste. Drink this tea three to four times daily.

Oregano oil can also be used to regulate the menstrual cycle, reduce the negative effects of menopause, and even prevent premature menopause.

5. Kills Intestinal Parasites
Intestinal parasites are those unwanted inhabitants of the gastrointestinal system that can cause you discomfort and increase your risk of contracting various diseases. Dried oregano effectively kills off these parasites, especially in its oil form. Oregano also contains two antimicrobial agents called thymol and carvacrol which have been proven effective in treating intestinal parasites.

Add two to three drops of oregano oil to water along with some freshly squeezed lemon juice and drink up to three times a day.


Oregano is also a great source of potassium, which is a component of our cell and body fluids that helps control rapid heart rate and blood pressure. Using these remedies can counteract high intakes of sodium and other substances that are dangerous to heart health.

The antioxidants in oregano are believed to prevent and repair oxidative stress and heart disease, among a number of other heart conditions. It is also a source of omega-3 fatty acids that help reduce inflammation in the body and lower the risk of heart disease.

Drink one cup of oregano tea daily to improve your heart health.

7. Control Asthma Attacks
Rich in lung-cleansing elements like carvacrol, flavonoids, and terpenes, oregano clears the respiratory tract to provide relief from asthma attacks.

When suffering from an asthma attack, drink oregano tea sweetened with honey four to five times a day. You can also extract the juice from the oregano leaves (using a blender) and take one teaspoon of it every hour to relieve asthma and chronic coughing.


If you have a weak appetite, oregano is a great option to keep it up. Studies have shown that oregano can relax stomach tension, which then stimulates the appetite.

Dilute oregano oil in water and use in the bath as a hot steam treatment or rub it into your skin to encourage an increased appetite. The herb also treats indigestion and bloating if you experience them.

9. Maintains Body Weight
Anyone looking to shed pounds or maintain a healthy weight should surely add oregano to their daily diet. The herb is free of cholesterol and is a rich source of dietary fiber. Fiber helps you manage your weight and can keep the body fit and free of disease.

Oregano actually helps dissolve fat build up in areas like the liver, gallbladder, lymph system, and more. This is because oregano contains carvacrol which is capable of dissolving fat into droplets.
