Oats have been eaten since prehistoric times. The genus name, Avena, is derived from Latin and means "nourishing." Sativa means "cultivated." Oat Straw is often planted to help avoid soil erosion, and is widely distributed as a cereal crop. The fruit and straw are gathered at harvest time, typically in August. The stalks are cut and bound together, and then left upright to dry. The straw is just the crushed dry stalks.
Highly nutritive and supportive of the nervous system, Oat Straw helps the body in the management of healthy bones, skin, hair and nails. It may also be beneficial as a bodily aid in the maintenance of a healthy nervous system.
The primary chemical constituents of Oat Straw includes saponins, flavonoids, starch, alkaloids (trigonelline, avenine), steroids, calcium, iron, B vitamins, lysine, and methionine. The fruits (seeds) contain alkaloids, such as gramine, and saponins, such as avenacosides A and B. The seeds are also rich in iron, manganese, and zinc. The straw is high in silica. The common name "Oat" also includes the species Avena fatua, which is used interchangeably with Avena sativa.
Stir 1/4 of a teaspoon into a glass of water and consume 3 times daily, with meals.
