North American Herb & Spice

P.O. Box 4885, Buffalo Grove, IL 60089,

North American Herb & Spice is the first to introduce an edible oil of oregano to the United States, according to the company. Oreganol P73, now available in blister packs, is an essential oil made only from hand-picked, wild, mountain-grow Mediter-ranean oregano, free of chemicals and pesticides. Chemicals and solvents are not used in the extraction process either, as the company uses steam distillation with deep spring water known for its high mineral content. The supplement is made from a specific blend of high-grade medicinal wild oreganos grown in mineral-rich soil that creates a balance of over 50 phytochemicals, providing a formula with a high percentage of calcium, magnesium and zinc. Oreganol P73 comes in oil and gelcap form as well as in regular and super strength (three times stronger than regular). For the oil, it is advised to take two or more drops under the tongue, in liquid or topically once daily, while the advised dosage for gel caps is one or more capsules as needed with or without meals.

The medicinal value of turmeric has been known for over 2,000 years, but North American Herb & Spice provides the only whole food wild turmeric supplement, according to the company, made with a fusion of wild turmeric, wild oregano and ginger oils. Turmerol is free of adulteration and chemical contamination due to cold-press extraction and the use of CO2 and steam to ensure all naturally occurring nutrients are extracted with the oil. The formula includes the whole phytochemical complex of turmeric, which allows for the maximum absorption of curcuminoids. Turmerol contains the only organic extracted curcuminoid resin in the world, says the company, so the formula contains no contaminants or petroleum-based materials.
