Top critical review
Not getting much of anything in these pills.
Reviewed in the United States on February 4, 2019
For me, I found these pills altered so much so that they don't even have the sweet scent of Oregano. No scent to them all which was strange. And they burned my tummy.
I found the description of this product boasting of such high Carvacrol very misleading. But that might be because I was so confused thinking I always had to get the highest % of Carvacrol for it to help me but I was wrong. It can have a lot of Carvacrol in it, but if it doesn't have enough mgs of oregano (this one only has 50mg) , you are actually shorting yourself of the actual mg amount of Carvacrol. The more oregano, the more Carvacrol. My hubby figured out the way to tell the amount of Carvacrol you're actually getting per pill...
In these pills for just 1, there is only 50mg of Oregano Oil (very low) per serving (1 capsule), out of the 50mg of Oregano Oil , 75-85% of that amount is Carvacrol which equates to ONLY 37.5-42.5 mg which is REALLY low. You'd have to take more pills to get enough mgs of Carvacrol to get what you would need for medicinal healing.
What you need to look for (I know I have been so confused for so long but finally figured it out with the help of my hubby) to find the TRUE amount of Carvacrol in each pill is this: Multiply the percentage of Carvacrol by the mgs of the oregano oil per serving size. For example the pills I'm leaving feedback for in this review (Nature's Way Oregano Oil) have only 50mgs of oregano oil per serving (1 pill). Take the 50 mgs oregano oil multiply that by the % of Carvacrol which is 75-85%. Which gives you only 37.5 - 42.5 mgs of Carvacrol per serving. (1 pill).
Ideally, you want the serving size (per pill) to be at least 100mg of Oregano per pill. And to have the proper healing medicinal properties, you need to have at least 65mgs Carvacrol PER PILL. I recommend Oregano Oil Capsules - High Potency Wild Oregano Oil (180 Capsules) by Wellness Resources. Serving size is 3. They are 300 mg per 3 pills making each pill 100 mg of Oregano. 65 mgs of Carvacrol at 65% Carvacrol. If you follow the formula I shared above, that makes the Carvacrol 65% per pill, because 65% of Carvacrol mulitplied by 100mgs of oregano = 65 mgs of Carvacrol per capsule which makes for a VERY good Oregano with a good amount of Carvacrol and they don't burn my tummy.
The oregano I'm leaving feedback for might work great for you but just know you'll need to take more. But to me, if you're taking oregano, the pills you're taking should SMELL like it!!!
