What You Need To Know About Oreganol P73
You may be wondering if there’s any difference between regular oregano oil and Oreganol P73. Both have the same
basic substance, oil of oregano, but the latter is the name of a special formulation of the same oil that is
produced by North American Herb & Spice.
How Is It Different From Standard Oil Of Oregano?
But in the production of Oreganol P73, the processing does not stop there. The regular oil is processed
further. It is emulsified using extra virgin olive oil as the carrier. The resulting oil is of high quality and
more effective than standard oreganol.
The quality of Oreganol P73 is higher than
regular oregano oil. Initially, the essential oil is extracted from the crushed leaves of the wild oregano plant.
This essential oil is cold-processed to preserve all the active components of the oil. The resultant product is
standard oil of oregano. At this stage the oil is already a very effective form of treatment for all kinds of
infections, including bacterial, fungal and parasitic.
Only 100% Mediterranean oregano is used in the production of Oreganol P73. Genuine oregano grows only under
specific soil and climate conditions. You can grow an oregano plant in your own backyard using the same seed but
you cannot reproduce the exact quality of the wild oregano plant that grows in the Mediterranean mountains. The
hilltops in Greece, Turkey and Portugal have the exact conditions that produce the oregano that contains potent and
How Effective Is Oreganol P73?
The potency of Oreganol P73 was tested (in vitro) against
other essential oils. The table below shows the result. If the reference number of the essential oil is 1, it means
it has the same killing power of phenol. If the number is above 1.0 it is an indication of the antiseptic power of
the essential oil greater than that of phenol.
Furthermore, volume 228 of the Journal of Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry published their findings which
demonstrated the antifungal activities of Oreganol P73 against Candida albicans.
How The Active Components Of Oreganol P73 Are Constituted
The typical oil of oregano has two
active substances. These are carvacrol and thymol. With Oreganol P73, the contents of these two potent substances
are carefully designed.
A) Carvacrol – what makes P73 oregano oil a high-quality oil is that its carvacrol
contents is more than 64%. This amount distinguishes it from standard oil of oregano.
B) Thymol – this chemical is harmful to humans therefore an effective oregano oil must
contain only a small amount of this substance. Oreganol P73 contains less than 5% of this chemical. Other brands of
oregano oil can contain much more than this amount.
C) There are 50 other substances identified in this P73 oil blend.
Oreganol P73 Does Not Kill Good Bacteria
Unlike the typical antibiotic which does not
discriminate between good and bad bacteria, Oreganol P73 will not disrupt the balance of friendly bacteria in
your system. A study entitled “Inhibitory and Stimulatory Effects of Oregano on Lactobacillus Plantarum and
Pediococcus Cerveisiae” done by Laura L. Zaika and John C. Kissinger stated that “although oregano can be
bactericidal toward lactic acid bacteria, these organisms (friendly bacteria) can become resistant towards the
effect of oregano.”
These findings show that there is no need for you to take probiotics when taking Oreganol P73.
Safe Even For Children
North American Herb & Spice says that you can safely give this
oil to your children as long as they are the proper dosages. They issued the following guidelines for children.
|6 months to 2 years
||1 drop in milk or juice, once a day for a maximum period of 10 days.
|2 to 5 years
||1 drop in milk or juice, once a day, with no restrictions on the number of days. Take
it preferably with food in stomach.
|6 to 10 years
||1 to 3 drops in juice, once a day and no restriction on number of days. Take it with
food in stomach.
|10 years and older
||3 drops in juice or under the tongue, and three times a day can be allowed. Take it
with food in stomach.
When giving oregano oil to your children, keep it away from their eyes. The active components of this oil will
cause burning sensations and may adversely affect their vision.
There is a certain medical condition that may be affected if Oreganol P73 is used.
• Those who are taking blood thinners such as Cumadin should consult their doctors before taking any
amount of this essential oil. It has a naturally occurring blood-thinning property and could affect the
functioning of your medication.
Other than that, most medical practitioners are of the consensus that “there is no known reason to expect a
clinically significant interaction with oregano.” So says the Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database. This
database was compiled by the editors of Pharmacist’s Letter and Prescriber’s Letter. It is available online at
