Oregano, thyme and barberry extract - Oregano Vida
When you buy Oregano Vida, you get a natural product with exciting ingredients.
Originally native to the Mediterranean region, the plant species is cultivated and used in warm and temperate regions worldwide. Natural occurrences are found in almost all of Europe. Oregano prefers warm locations on calcareous subsoil. It usually colonises dry and sparse forests, such as oak and pine forests or snow heath pine forests. The leaves of the oregano plant contain a great variety of essential oils, tannins and bitter substances with described physiological activity and other naturally occurring plant substances such as carvacrol.
We source our organic oregano powder from Europe. The powder is then gently final processed with the extracting agent water into an organic extract of high quality. We use an extract tailored to our product, which has a special characteristic and therefore meets our demands for a high quality product. We analyse and process the raw material mass in Switzerland.
Thyme is a shrub of the labiates family. The shrub has a low height and bears many lilac-coloured flowers in May and June. The thyme shrub is also a rich bee pasture. Thyme originates from the western Mediterranean countries. Thyme is a well-known kitchen spice with a mild, peppery pungency. The Latin name Thymus is supposed to refer to its invigorating and stimulating effect. In ancient Egypt, thyme played a role in embalming and the Greeks and Romans were already seasoning with thyme. The Benedictine monks brought the herb to northern Europe; in the Middle Ages it became a symbol of strength and courage. Herbalists have always attributed properties associated with the maintenance of good health to thyme with its high-quality essential oils.
We source our thyme from the Mediterranean region. It is grown in organic quality and carefully harvested. The dried powder is concentrated into an extract in a gentle process, with the aim of ensuring that the valuable ingredients are not altered or even lost in the process.
Barberry occurs naturally in Europe and eastwards as far as India. In the Alps, barberry thrives up to 2500 metres above sea level. Through cultivation and subsequent overgrowth, barberry can now also be found in other regions of the world. Among other things, the plant substance berberine is extracted from the root bark. In contrast, the fruits of barberry, which are eaten in Europe in dried form as an alternative to sultanas, do not contain berberine. Berberine is contained in the root bark of the common Berberis vulgaris as well as in the Berberis aristata we use.
The plants for the barberry powder we use are gently cultivated and concentrated by means of extraction.
