Oregano is a potent anti-bacterial herb that in its oil form can help heal cold sores. Surprisingly it also contains several nutrients including fiber, vitamin K, manganese, iron, calcium, vitamin E, and tryptophan. Oregano is often found in Italian and Mediterranean dishes, but also has a place in your NutriBlast.

Selection Process

Oregano can be found fresh, dried, and in pure oil form. Fresh is far superior in flavor. The leaves should look fresh, be vibrant green, and with firm stems. Avoid dark spots or yellowing. If buying dried, look for organic varieties. Fresh oregano should be stored in the fridge wrapped in a damp paper towel.
