Oregano Oil Supports Healthy Intestinal Morphology

FullSizeRender.jpg

Our intestines have important digestive and immune-system supporting functions. The small intestine is a principal site of food digestion and absorption of nutrients. It has villi, or tiny projections that increase the surface area of the intestine, to maximize the absorption of nutrients. Taking supplemental Oregano essential oil was found to increase the height of these villi, in an experimental study.*

Supplemental Oregano essential oil was also found to increase the integrity of the intestinal barrier.* Add these to the list of benefits of ingesting Oregano essential oil, and perhaps another reason to take GX Assist®.
