Congrats 2brickie!

I use the GNC liquid oil of oregano. Oil of Oregano in liquid form is very strong. I don't think you would enjoy it on salads. I've been reading around, and some say that oil of oregano is very helpful in fighting yeast overgrowth in the digestive tract.

The yeast thing is where it probably helped with the stall. Yeast overgrowth, Atkins says is a well known staller.

So, Brickie.....you think 50mg is the max you should take? I'm going to stop at the health food store on my way home.

from my own experience, the 50 mg is good, i started taking another brand 2 a day, and i was so wound up i couldnt sleep at night. just seems the one of 50 mg has really kicked in for me after about exactly 2 weeks. i will continue to take it, up until the time i have lost my last 2 pounds.

Brickie, what do you mean when you say 'wound up'? Does it cause any constipation or diarrhea problem by taking this?

Well, I picked up some at a HFS last night. But they only had it in the 150mg. I took one this morning, so we'll see what happens as far as being "wound up" goes. I'll update to this thread if anything unusual happens.....like if I have so much energy that I actually feel like working on a Friday afternoon when my boss is out of town! LOL :-)

No one over 140lb has jumped into this thread to buy the newest magic bullet.

What exactly does the oil of oregano do in your system.?

yeah, I'm also a bit curious although there was a thread earlier that it helps with bloating (i think i have ibs or a yeast so bloating is a big problem!) But what does the liquid form taste like? I heard the liquid was better than the tablet, and also good source of fatty acids-- i find olive oil to be too mild, so maybe i would like it on salads?

the liquid form you can buy in the gel caps, my mom has bought it in nevada, actually the natures way i take is liquid inside one of those capsules you can see it. i have taken the powder capsule and took 2 a day. i took it for about 2 weeks before the scale moved, but the pants started becoming baggy about 4 days into it. i just wanted to let you all know it worked for me in my last few pounds. im down another 1/2 pound this morning after eating what i felt like was a ton yesterday. i have 1 1/2 pounds to go to reach my goal of 123 so i figure whatever it did im happy. i need to update my profile today. good luck

WOW!

I knew that oil of oregano helps with migrane troubles but for stalls, it sounds like a great thing. It probably has positive effects also that you or I don't know yet. In ancient times, natural oils were all there were for medications.

Great job on you weigh loss sucess!

we have a friend who is a holistic vet, she says oil of oregano is good for many things, but she never dreamed it would boost the weight loss so fast. she takes it for an immunity builder. i know she gives it to my horses for something, and whatever she does they love her. when she comes around they all just perk their ears up and wait for their turn. i will continue to use it, and see if it continues to work.
