Studies conducted by Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., have shown that the wild, mountain-grown oregano used by Physicians Strength is an excellent anti-fungal agent, completely killing Candida albicans in concentrations as minimal as 0.25 mg/ml.
It also is much safer to use than popular anti-fungal drugs on the market. Further studies are pending. For additional information on oregano and other herbs, research from around the world is available through your local library. Many studies demonstrating the strong antioxidant, broad antimicrobial and even painkilling properties of oregano have been published in scientific journals. Perhaps the most complete resource available on oregano, which is easy to understand, is the book The Cure is in the Cupboard: How to Use Oregano for Better Health, by Dr. Cass Ingram. We have been followed by other companies trying to copy our success with oil of oregano.
Many of them label their product Oregano or use the Latin name Oreganum Vulgare to make it sound very scientific. This Latin name is used by botanists to describe over 60 different types of plants, often having no other similarities with true oregano except taste (like Thymus capitus from Spain or Mexican Sage).
True oregano grows only under specific soil and climate conditions and can not be reproduced in your own backyard, even if the same seeds are planted. Its the perfect growing conditions found in the mountains of the Mediterranean that produce oregano with active, beneficial substances and without compounds that can be harmful to health when taken in concentrated dosages. Thymol is the harmful substance present in many inferior grades of oregano oil, and our oil has no thymol. Carvacrol content is a good indicator of high quality oregano oil, and our products have over 64%. But carvacrol is not the only indicator of high quality oregano, as the plant produces over 50 known substances which work synergistically to provide maximum benefits.
