Intestinal yeast and parasites continue to be important health issues. Food-based ingredients, such as oil of oregano, when appropriately delivered, offer a potential solution. Surface contact throughout the GI tract remains an important consideration. By means of emulsification, the effective surface area of oregano oil, microspheres can exceed the total intestinal surface area. We now report the results of initial clinical trials indicating emulsified, sustained release oil of oregano (A.D.P.) can effectively normalize gut function for individuals with candida and/or common intestinal parasites, such as Blastocystis hominis.
