Oregano and olive tree leaves tea for a healthy gut

Why this tea

Since I’ve started having some gut issues this last couple of months, I was looking for some natural remedies to help me with the bloating, gas, and all that discomfort. I’ve read about the amazing benefits of oregano oil and also olive leaves extract, so I thought of mixing these two together. And it was one of the best ideas I’ve ever had.

Benefits of oregano for digestion:

Oregano oil (found in oregano leaves in flowers) rich in antioxidant properties and high in phenolic content.

Antibacterial effect:

  • Bad bacteria always find a way to your stomach no matter how clean your food is, these bacteria are supposed to get killed by stomach acid but sometimes when the acid is not strong enough, they get pass it and make it to the intestine and then cause a lot of symptoms such as gas, bloating, diarrhea or constipation and also heartburn. Oregano which its amazing antibacterial properties can help you with these bacteria by its polyphenols carvacrol and thymol
  • Also, Oregano oil has much higher level of total antioxidant activity than vitamin E. 
  • A leaky gut is when bad bacteria can leak through the intestine wall and enter the bloodstream which later can cause a lot of diseases. So, since the oil in oregano can kill bad bacteria, it can help you with the leaky gut problem by killing those bacteria before entering through the intestinal wall.

  1. Wow, I didn’t know olive leaves were so good for you! My house has a big olive tree, I’ll have to try this out. Does it matter what variety of olive tree you get the leaves from, or do they all have the same health benefits?

    1. Yes they’re amazing! I think all the varieties have Biophenols and Polyphenols, maybe with different concentrations but I believe that all olive leaves are good! Like for example I have no idea what variety is my olive tree and still, I used it and it really helped me. Does your tree make olives or is it fruitless?
