Results show oregano’s ability to reduce inflammation throughout the small intestine and colon, promoting the integrity of the intestinal barrier (epithelium), likely due to its effects on intestinal bacteria and immune status.
Overall nutrient absorption was increased.
Endotoxins, such as e coli, were significantly reduced.
TB, Strep, Staph, E coli and Salmonella are some of the more common types of bacterial infections found in humans.
Oregano is shown to be an alternative antibacterial in enhancing the healing process of bacterial infections, in turn preventing antibiotic resistant strain development.
Origanum minutiflorum can be used as an alternative to antibiotics to combat microbial diseases, including those of bacterial origin.
Origanum minutiflorum displayed a “strong and broad-spectrum application against tested plant pathogens, as well as standard antibiotics”, and could potentially be used as an antimicrobial agent in new drugs for therapy.
