Savory - organic
The taste of savory is very aromatic with a peppery edge, something between thyme and mint and it peps up culinary preparations. Its antioxidants supply makes it a healthy seasoning and its presence supports digestion and fights bloating and gas. But it is also a medicinal plant with many other applications.
Savory is particularly appreciated in leguminous dishes whose digestibility it improves, but also refines and improves successfully lots of other culinary preparations (vegetables, meat, fish, soup, sauces, desserts ...) and actually the well-known red label spice mixture "Herbes de Provence" has savory as one of its principal ingredients. Culinary herbs are usual consumed in small quantities as seasonings, but adding them regularly and significantly allows to contribute, and not insignificantly, to the maintenance of a good health.
Savory is a plant rich in essential oils, of which the phenols carvacrol and thymol and it is one of the most powerful phenol plants in its category. Little research concerning it has been carried out but antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, carminative, antispasmodic, anthelmintic, expectorant and antidiarrheal effects were observed and savory seems to be able not only to eliminate bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites of all kinds but also to create unfavorable conditions for their multiplication. It is a tonic and immunostimulant plante whose action on the adrenal glands helps control stress, immunity and libido.
