Oil of Oregano – How it Helps to Alleviate Symptoms of PCOS

As women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), we aim to take the most natural and kindest approaches to healing our bodies. Oregano is a well-known herb that has many surprising benefits and the oil from this botanical could alleviate some of your symptoms.

What is Oregano Oil?

Oregano oil comes from its leaf. You probably have some in your pantry for seasoning those delicious “PCOS-friendly” meals you prepare. It turns out that oil of oregano is a powerful antimicrobial agent, because it contains an essential compound called carvacrol. Carvacrol is what gives oregano that warm, pungent aroma. Oregano also has anti-inflammatory agents, known as s beta-caryophyllin (E-BCP), which are beneficial to us due to the common inflammatory response to the foods we eat.

What are the uses for Oil of Oregano and how can It be taken?

It turns out oregano oil is often used for a variety of ailments, from respiratory tract disorders such as coughs and bronchitis to heartburn and bloating. However did you know oregano oil is beneficial for women whom have been diagnosed with PCOS? Oregano is known as mother nature’s defense against harmful organisms.  This essential oil contains extremely high levels of free-radical fighting antioxidants, or agents protecting the body.

For many women, uncomfortable periods and menopause effects are a huge problem.  If you’ve been diagnosed with PCOS, take note that oregano oil can aid irregular menstruation and lessen the negative effects of menopause. This power-packed botanical may help support regular periods and protect against negative menopause conditions.

In addition, as a potent antioxidant, through neutralizing free radicals, oregano oil helps slow the process of cellular deterioration. The result? It slows the aging process. In fact, oregano oil is a key component in the science of combatting aging. Because aging is an effect of oxidation and free radicals, an antioxidant such as oregano oil can be very instrumental in supporting a youthful appearance and healthy body.

Oregano oil can be taken orally. Just one capsule a day with each meal. Look for oil of oregano that is standardized to 60-75% carvacrol.

How can Oil of Oregano help with my PCOS?

A study in 1998 found that oregano is one of the only botanicals that binds to progesterone receptors and increases its release. According to a study conducted by researchers at Aeron Biotechnology, this means it may help increase the production of the hormone progesterone, Scientists discovered that oregano is one of the main herbs that binds to intracellular receptors for progesterone and increases its release. Progesterone plays a role in several functions in the body, from promoting normal sleep patterns to normalizing blood sugar levels. Although oregano impacts progesterone, it has no impact on other hormones in the body. The findings were published in the March 1998 issue of “Proceedings of the Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine.”

Oregano oil is a powerful and natural way to help your body to heal from a number of ailments.  It’s use for women with PCOS can increase the production of progesterone. In women with PCOS, progesterone is not usually produced in sufficient amounts. By adding nutrients that are shown to promote hormonal balance as well as aid in our general well-being, we can take one more step in gaining control of our bodies.

If you suffer from PCOS, you will certainly want to keep oregano oil handy in your pantry or medicine cabinet. Make oregano oil a part of your PCOS wellness plan.
