Oregano has actually been known to help people reduce their blood pressure, though so far there have been no scientific studies that can confirm this beyond a shadow of a doubt. Although oregano is usually seen on pizzas as a topping among other dishes, it can also act as an antioxidant and a way to keep blood pressure under control when consumed in large quantities.
Those who have excessively high blood pressure levels are at risk for a number of health problems, including chronic heart disease which is one of the most common killers across the country.
One thought on “Can Oregano Oil Raise Blood Pressure?”
I can say I began using an Oregano Oil spray in a glass of water each morning for 2 weeks now and while the blood pressure medication I’m trying with my doctor was not lowering my BP, the Oregano Oil appears to be doing just that. I went from 145/100 to 117/78 after a week of the Oregano Oil. Do not try this without letting your doctor know, though. Some drugs will interact with herbal supplements.
