The essential oil of oregano can fight Staphylococcus ;
Research It is to show that essential oils have antimicrobial oregano attributes and can be used to combat gram-positive bacteria such as Staphylococcus.
Oregano is derived from the leaves and flowers bushy perennial herb native to Europe. While herbalists have used oil of oregano as an antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal for centuries, modern science is confirming its qualities through studies, such as Argentina, “antimicrobial, mechanical properties and barrier films proteins triticale incorporated with essential oil of oregano, “published online in the September issue of Food Biosciences, 2013.
That items evaluated different concentrations of oil on antimicrobial activity and mechanical properties and barrier films plasticized with glycerol films compared to control without an antimicrobial agent.
It was found that films with OEO showed greater antimicrobial activity against gram positive bacteria to Staphylococcus aureus, and Gram negative for lower (Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa).
The results showed the permanence of the OEO in the polymer matrix after processing, making them capable of being used as active additives in the formulation of the film.
Adam Graves ND, LAC, practicing natural medicine in Colorado, Castle Rock, Co and specializes in hormones, digestion, pain and fatigue, says: “Oregano oil has traditionally been used as an agent antimicrobial. This study adds to the evidence that it has anti-microbial activity, especially when it is to come to Staphyloccoccus “.
He said the use of oregano oil should be taken into account more often as a result of this study.
“In an era of antibiotic resistant, natural antimicrobial bacteria play a more important role infection prevention and oregano oil should be considered strongly based on this research,” Graves said.
