When most people talk about oregano, they’re usually referring to the herb used in cooking. You’ll find dried oregano in the spice aisle of your local grocery store while fresh oregano is sold in the fruit and vegetable section. You can usually find fresh oregano at your local farmer’s market, too, and some people grow fresh oregano in their gardens.
The plant oregano is a member of the mint family and has multiple anti-microbial and healing properties. It’s also an ancient remedy for narcotic poisoning and seizures. However, there are actually two kinds of oregano. The cooking herb is typically oregano marjoram. There’s another, though: true Oregano (Oregano vulgare).
You may have heard people say that if you are eating the right foods, you shouldn’t need to take a multiple vitamin-mineral supplement. However, even a healthy diet that is rich in fruits and vegetables might not be providing you with all the minerals and vitamins that you need. Generations of farming the same land over and over again have depleted the soil of vitamins and minerals. Soil depletion means that the fruits and vegetables of today are not as nutritious as they were just decades ago. To make up for this loss of nutrients in our food, we recommend that everyone find a good quality multiple vitamin-mineral (MVM) supplement to meet their daily nutrition requirements and keep their body healthy.
