Additional product info:
Oil of Mediterranean oregano Oreganum vulgare was orally administered to 14 adult patients whose stools tested positive for enteric parasites, Blastocystis hominis, Entamoeba hartmanni and Endolimax nana. After 6 weeks of supplementation with 600 mg emulsified oil of oregano daily, there was complete disappearance of Entamoeba hartmanni (four cases), Endolimax nana (one case), and Blastocystis hominis in eight cases. Also, Blastocystis hominis scores declined in three additional cases. Gastrointestinal symptoms improved in seven of the 11 patients who had tested positive for Blastocystis hominis (1).*
A study evaluated the effects of ginger on gastric motility and emptying, abdominal symptoms, and hormones that influence motility in dyspepsia. Eleven patients with functional dyspepsia were studied twice in a randomized double-blind manner. After an 8-h fast, the patients ingested three capsules that contained ginger root powder (total 1.2 g) or placebo, followed after 1 h by 500 mL low-nutrient soup. Gastric emptying was more rapid after ginger than placebo. There was also a trend for more antral contractions. Ginger stimulated gastric emptying and antral contractions in patients with functional dyspepsia (2). At 0.5-2 grams per day, ginger root is traditionally used in Herbal Medicine to help relieve digestive upset/disturbances including lack of appetite, nausea, digestive spasms, indigestion, dyspepsia and flatulent colic (carminative) (3).*
