Oregano is rated the herb leader with the most antioxidant activity

 

Many fruits and vegetables provide antioxidants , but research shows that fresh oregano is at the top of the list in antioxidant activity. Adding fresh herbs to your diet is an easy way to include significant amounts of antioxidants and increase the health value of a meal without adding extra calories–and you can easily grow them right in your own backyard garden or in containers on your patio or balcony.

Fresh oregano is rated the herb leader with the most antioxidant activity and is even more highly rated than the much–touted blueberries. Other popular, high–antioxidant herbs are sage, peppermint, dill and thyme.
