Egenin Oregano


8% Oregano essential oil

For many years, antibiotics have been used for animals as an appetizer and as a protection against diseases. However, the use of antibiotics in feed has been banned, as it has increased bacterial resistance and has left residues in animal feed. Following antibiotics ban, attention has been turned to natural alternative antibiotics. 

The most effective of these oils is oregano oil. 85% of the world’s Oregano oil production is made in Turkey because the Oregano grown in the Aegean region contains high carvacrol and thymol active ingredients. 

Bactericidal effect: Unfortunately, 90 % of the studies made on Izmir’s oregano were performed outside of Turkey. According to the results of scientific researches, even at a low dose (200 mg per day for humans), is very effective on bacterias. Essential oils obtained from Izmir Oregano show the bactericidal effect like antibiotics, by breaking down the bacterial cell wall, opening the holes and leaking in the ions. Thus, bacterial ATP synthesis is inhibited and bacteria that don’t produce energy die.

Effect on Rumen functions: Numerous scientific studies have been carried out to show that Oregano essential oil affects the tripe activities positively and reduce the production of methane gas and it has been stated that it will have a positive effect on the environment by reducing methane. Oregano oil maintains the rumen flora and the optimum balance of acetic, nitric and propionic acid in the rumen. This effect increases the digestion capacity of the tripe. It’s known that Oregano oil affects fertility, meat and milk yield positively. It’s estimated that this positive effect is due to multiple effects including positive effects on rumen functions. 

Can these effects be accomplished by feeding the animals Oregano directly? 
If the plant should be consumed directly instead of essential oils, the challenge to provide fresh Oregano every day. However, it’s known intensive dosing of an active substance has the expected effect. On the other hand, from 100kg Oregano, there can only get 500-700g of Oregano essential oil. 

The claim that essential oils are herbs used in ancient times and that they are not scientific: 
It is true that essential oils have been used since very ancient times. However, most of the effects and mechanisms of action of the active ingredients in essential oils are scientifically proven assertions. The use of essential oils is entirely based on scientific evidence. 

What’s the difference of Royal Ilac Egenin Oregano? 
It’s regrettable to say that there is a lot of scam in the essential oils sector. Essential oils are fundamental oils in plants. The production is very difficult and the extraction ratio is very low. Do not confuse between plant essential oil and plant extract (plant juice). This plant is sometimes called tincture, which isn’t the same as essential oil. Many of the Oregano oils which claim to be essential oils are only composed of synthetic aromas. It’s impossible to get the expected results using these products. Royal Ilac Egenin Oregano is produced only with natural essential oils of the Oregano which grows naturally in Izmir by the Aegean region.
