Marjoram or Origanum majorana is an herb or undershrub with sweet pine and citrus flavors. Originated from Cyprus and southern Turkey, its aromatic leaves are excellent for culinary purposes.

Here are 7 the health benefits of marjoram.

1.     Marjoram could keep the stomach in top form.

Marjoram ensures proper flow of bile, gastric juices, and acids in the stomach. Bile neutralizes the acids that are responsible for destroying the stomach lining.

2.     Marjoram could be a vasodilator.

Vasodilators expand and relax the blood vessels, ease the flow of blood, and reduce blood pressure, thus reducing strain on the entire cardiovascular system. This helps decrease the risk of heart disease, atherosclerosis, and brain hemorrhage. 

3.     Marjoram could be fungicidal.

Marjoram could inhibit the growth of fungus and help cure fungal infections. This helps cure some fungal skin diseases and helps cure dysentery or bloody diarrhea.

4.     Marjoram may help women on their cycles.

Marjoram is an herb that could help stimulate blood flow to the pelvic area and uterus. This provides relief from symptoms associated with the menstrual cycle, such as a headache, pain in the abdominal area, dizziness, and mood swings.

5.     Marjoram may help fight bacteria and viruses.

Marjoram could be quite useful in giving relief from the congestion of the nasal tract, larynx, pharynx, bronchi, and lungs due to colds and viral infections.

6.     Marjoram is a diuretic.

Marjoram increases the regularity of urination and the quantity of urine. This helps the body remove excess water, sodium, uric acid, bile salts and other toxins from the body. Increased urination is linked to lower blood pressure, cleaner kidneys, and reduced fat.

7.     Marjoram can make you sweat more.

Marjoram helps perspiration and keeps the body removing toxins, sodium salts, and excess water from the body. This also helps bring down fevers.
