Oregano is an important culinary and medicinal herb that has been used in medicine and cooking for thousands of years, with a number of potential health benefits. It is a species of Origanum, belonging to the mint family (Lamiaceae). Its name comes from the Greek words oros (mountain) and ganos (joy)

This great herb is an effective natural aphrodisiac for women and men. It stimulates the heart and increases sexual energy. Oregano is easy to find, inexpensive and tastes great with Italian food. Buy some fresh oregano from the local store, and look up some good recipes where this herb can be used.

The herb is used to treat respiratory tract disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, menstrual cramps, and urinary tract disorders. It is also applied to help treat a number of skin conditions, such as acne and dandruff.

Oregano contains: fiber, iron, manganese, vitamin E, iron, calcium, omega fatty acids, manganese, typtophan, vitamin K (vitamin involved in bone growth and density, and the production of blood clotting proteins), and dietary antioxidants.

Oregano has shown antimicrobial activity against 41 strains of the food pathogen listeria monocytogenes and it can even kill the hospital superbug MRSA.

Scientists at Bonn University, Germany, and the ETH Zurich, Switzerland, identified an active ingredient in oregano - known as beta-caryophyllin (E-BCP) - which may possibly be of use against disorders such as osteoporosis and arteriosclerosis.

Biologists at the United Arab Emirates University reported in the journal PLoS ONE that oregano exhibits anticancer activity by encouraging cell cycle arrest and apoptosis (cancer cells commit suicide) of the MDA-MB-231 breast cancer line. Put simply, they believe components in oregano may help slow down or prevent the progression of breast cancer.
