Oil of oregano has a wide range of natural compounds with proven healing effects, including carvacrol and thymol. Some of these active ingredients damage the cell membranes of bacteria, causing fluids to leak out of the bacteria and impairing their metabolism and replication. Studies have shown that using oil from the whole herb, rather than just some of its individual chemical compounds, creates a synergy that greatly enhances potency. The safety and effectiveness of oil of oregano has been demonstrated by its use as a herbal remedy for thousands of years.
Now, modern medical research has confirmed oil of oregano as an important natural health supplement. Natural Factors Certified Organic Oil of Oregano is derived from this wild-crafted Mediterranean species. The oil is extracted from the hand-picked leaves using gentle steam distillation to ensure potency and purity. Because pure oil of oregano is too potent to be used full strength, it is blended in a one-to-four ratio with organic, cold-pressed, extra-virgin olive oil.
Adaptogens are herbs that improve the body's resiliency and response to stress in order to minimize the effects of stress on the body and avoid collapse.
The adrenal glands are the main organs that help us deal with stress. When we are doing too much, not eating well or not getting adequate rest, the adrenals become exhausted. We need our adrenals to function optimally because they are our back-up hormone system when our ovaries take a much-needed rest. Women who have exhausted adrenals have terrible menopausal symptoms. The adrenals make cortisol, our stress hormone, as well as progesterone, DHEA, testosterone, and estrogen. ADRENAsmart works fast to aid adrenal function by supplying a blend of adaptogenic herbs including rhodiola rosea, suma, schisandra chinensis berry, and ashwagandha.
