Wild Thyme Wild thyme is also referred to as Thymus vulgaris. Thymus vulgaris is one of the medicinal plants with many health benefits. Thymus antioxidant and antimicrobial activities have been linked with a high quantity of flavonoids. It is an important essential oil useful in aromatherapy. The following researches will show the health benefits of thymus vulgaris; Antispasmodic effects A study was carried out to investigate the antispasmodic effect of Thymus Vulgaris on the different muscles. It was shown to be effective on smooth muscles of the trachea and the ileum. Thyme extracts with very low thymol contents were equally effective with respect to endothelin effects signifying that Thymus is effective as an antispasmodic due to its major components; thymol and carvacrol. Antibacterial activity A study analyzed the antibacterial activity of Thymus vulgaris L. (Lamiaceae). It was tested against several strains of two Gram-positive (Brochothrix thermosphacta and Staphylococcus aureus) and four Gram-negative food-borne bacteria (Escherichia coli, Salmonella abony, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and P. fragi. The study obtained that all the compositions identified were effective against all the strains included with different potency showing that Thymus vulgaris is a good antimicrobial. Antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties A study that investigated the antifungal effect of Thymus vulgaris essential oil (TVEO) and/or as an active ingredient in the prevention or management of topical inflammatory diseases was carried out. The chemical composition and antifungal action of TVEO by gas chromatography and in vitro by using different methods respectively. TVEO showed more potent antifungal activity against Candida strains than the positive control and anti-inflammatory effects. Modulatory effects A study on the modulatory effects of Thymus vulgaris on the clinical symptoms, histopathological scores, and the production of some anti-inflammatory (TGF-β, IL-4, and IL-10) and pro-inflammatory (IFN-γ, IL-6, and IL-17) cytokines in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) model. The mice were treated for about 22 days with phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) in the control group after EAE has been induced by MOG35–55 peptide. The study showed the immunomodulatory effects of Thymus vulgaris in the EAE model.
