Research has shown that oregano oil has health benefits on animals. Fourteen free-range nursing piglets were part of this project; half control and half given a daily oral oregano oil supplement. The supplementation period was 21 days; piglets were weighed every third day. Results showed that oregano supplemented piglets grew significantly faster than control piglets. Oregano oil benefits growth of free-range piglets.
