Did you know that Clove has the highest antioxidant capacity than any other oil? In fact, with its ORAC score of 1,078,700, it has a higher antioxidant rate than any fruit or vegetable! You can find this powerful essential oil in dental preparations, gum and candy, and even in DoTERRA’s Lifelong Vitality Line as an important ingredient of xEO Mega®.
WHAT IS CLOVE AND HOW DO I USE IT?
Clove essential oil is steam distilled from the dried flower buds of the plant. It ranges from colorless to light yellow and has a strong, spicy aroma. The essential oil is most popular in dentistry because of its numbing effect—derived from the warm sensation—and its potent antioxidant properties that prevent infection. However, Clove can provide a myriad of other benefits as well.
Researchers investigated the effect of Clove essential oil on fatty liver and dyslipidemia. The study concluded that Clove essential oil had a significant improvement in fatty liver and dyslipidemia with consequent expected protection from cardiovascular diseases and other complications of fatty liver. Add Clove to your daily supplement or take a daily dose of xEO Mega® to help promote cardiovascular wellness.
HIGH IN ANTIOXIDANTS
Antioxidants are compounds that reduce oxidative stress which can contribute to the development of chronic diseases. Clove contains a chemical compound called eugenol that is known to lend Clove its antioxidant capacity and antiseptic properties. A test-tube study performed in 2010 by the Molecular Dynamics Section of the National Institutes of Health found that eugenol stopped oxidative damage caused by free radicals five times more effectively than vitamin E. Add to your daily supplement regimen to reduce oxidative damage either by adding four drops of Clove to a veggie capsule or take xEO Mega® in DoTERRA’s LLV line.
KEEPS YOU HEALTHY
Clove has antimicrobial properties that help stop the growth of microorganisms like bacteria. Another test-tube study performed in 2012 by the Faculty of Pharmacy and Biochemistry from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, found that Clove can be effective at killing off three common types of bacteria. One of the three was E. Coli. Take Clove internally or indulge in DoTERRA’s OnGuard softgels (which contain Clove) to boost immune health and fight against nasty bacteria.
