The Science of Origanum Vulgare

It might seem like a miracle that our primitive ancestors managed to survive and create the foundation of our modern world. But our ancestors weren’t alone. They had a powerful, unexpected ally — plants. Today, we’re surrounded by plants that have saved lives. You’ve probably sprinkled one of them on a pizza.

Oil of oregano, origanum vulgare, is far more than a culinary herb. With the power to kill viruses and bacteria, this powerhouse of a plant has remarkable healing properties that have been documented in modern medical journals and ancient scriptures alike.

At Hyssop Health, we’re committed to making origanum vulgare accessible to anyone who can benefit from its healing properties. By pairing a surprisingly simple remedy with cutting edge technology, we’ve created a formula that’s safe enough to use every day, but strong enough to take on acute symptoms

What is Hyssop Health?

A medicine cabinet in a bottle

As conventional drugs are becoming less effective against infection viruses and diseases like the flu and SARS, the future of medicine has looked toward ancient wisdom.

Documented in the Bible, the English word hyssop was translated from the Greek word essop, which is derived from the Hebrew word ezov, meaning wild oregano.

Excavation of ancient Greek and Roman ruins revealed wild oregano placed in the pharmacies — not in the kitchens. The powerful oil was used for healing and maintaining wellness. In the Middle Ages, English physicians used wild oregano for its antiseptic and anti-microbial powers.

Over 2000 years later, we are still benefiting from and learning from this incredible plant. That’s where Hyssop Health Therapy comes in.

Combining science with ancient wisdom

Why we created a liquid oral spray instead of capsules

Numerous studies published in The Journal of Clinical Pharmacology show that the bioavailability from a tablet is approximately 50% less than that from a liquid. In other words, the liquid solution was twice as bioavailable as the tablet.

We formulated Hyssop Health Therapy as an oral spray for the fastest, targeted, and most bioavailable approach to support the immune system and target maladies. Think of our immune system as our soldiers of defense, and Hyssop Health as state-of-the-art ammunition for our soldiers.

• No gastric upset
• Quick absorption
• Targets both the circulatory and lymphatic systems fast

Testing every batch in a lab

Our product specifications require GC or gas chromatography testing. This measures how much of a specific plant element is present from each harvest. This testing ensures that the oil has not been adulterated at any processing step and provides the same benefits from each harvest. Our testing includes:
• Heavy Metal Analysis
• Potency Analysis
• Residual Solvent
• Physical/Chemical/Organoleptic Analysis
• Cross Contamination Control
• pH Testing

Delivering plant power directly into the bloodstream

Our patented Hyssop Health formula is delivered through an all-natural encapsulation technique that allows oregano oil to be both quickly absorbed and slowly released for optimal results.

In science terms, our oregano oil is encapsulated within tiny bubbles made from the purest soy lecithin containing high levels of phospholipids, and phosphorylcholine.

The bioavailability of the wild oregano oil is increased by an attraction to the phospholipids by our cell membranes. These bubbles have a strong synergistic effect and create an enhancement of the effects of the oil creating extraordinary results. The heavily vascularized mucosa within the mouth and throat enables fast absorption.

 Yes, this is nanotechnology! Our ancestors never could have imagined this inventive way of using oregano oil.

Why our oregano oil is different

Harvesting the power of the whole plant

Mediterranean oregano contains 49 plant-elements with medicine-like effects on nine areas of the body. The entourage effect of this whole plant is well researched and documented in the Phytochemical and Ethnobotanical databases. These plant elements are proven to be antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, antiparasitic, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant in function.

Going directly to the source

Hyssop Health Therapy doesn’t use the oregano you can buy at the grocery store.The wild grown oregano oil used in Hyssop Health Therapy is grown 12,000 feet above sea level and picked by hand on the mountain tops. These high mountain soils are rich with calcium and ultimately pure and free of contaminants from lower elevations.
• Wild-grown active ingredients
• Certificates of Analysis
• Allergen Review
• Botanical specifications required
• cGMP vendor qualification required

An ancient remedy for today's health

As conventional drugs are becoming less effective against infection viruses and diseases like swine flu and SARS, the future of medicine appears to lie in an ancient medicine cabinet of plants and herbs.

Documented in the Bible over 2000 years ago, and missed in translation, the English word hyssop was translated from the Greek word essop, which is derived from the Hebrew word ezov, meaning wild oregano.

The ancient Greeks and Egyptians used this Mediterranean herbal oil for health and preservation. In the Middle Ages, English physicians used wild oregano for its antiseptic and anti-microbial powers.

Excavation of ancient Greek and Roman ruins revealed wild oregano placed in the pharmacies, not in the kitchens.

Patented delivery

Our patented Hyssop Health formula is delivered smartly with our all-natural encapsulation technique whereby the therapeutic power of the oregano oil is quickly absorbed and slowly released for optimal results.

In science terms, our oregano oil is encapsulated within tiny bubbles made from the purest soy lecithin containing high levels of phospholipids, and phosphorylcholine. The bioavailability of the wild oregano oil is increased by an attraction to the phospholipids by our cell membranes. These bubbles have a strong synergistic effect and, create an enhancement of the effects of the oil creating extraordinary results. The heavily vascularized mucosa within the mouth and throat enables fast absorption. Further, the encapsulated whole oil is shielded from any degradation, and dilution upon use.

Liquid spray vs. pills

Numerous studies published in The Journal of Clinical Pharmacology show that the bioavailability from a tablet is approximately 50% than that from a liquid. In other words, the liquid solution was twice as bioavailable as the tablet. 

Why a spray?

We formulated Hyssop Health Therapy as an oral spray for the fastest, targeted, and most bioavailable approach to support the immune system and target maladies. Think of our immune system as our soldiers of defense, and Hyssop Health as state-of-the-art ammunition for our soldiers.
