Dried Organic Australia Grown Oat Straw, Green Oats, Avena Sativa

Oat straw is harvested from the stems of the unripened, green Avena sativa plant. Rich in phytonutrients and fiber, it may improve digestion, relieve stress and anxiety and energize your body naturally. 

Nutritional Value

Oat straw is traditionally used as a mild relaxant and sleep aid, to calm the nervous system and relieve anxiety. Oat straw tea has high nutritional value as it is rich in calcium, potassium, iron, vitamin A, vitamin C, dietary fiber and antioxidants.

Loaded with polyphenols, it fights oxidative stress and offsets its harmful effects. It appears to be particularly beneficial for the brain, sexual function and bone health. These benefits are due to its high content of B-complex vitamins and calcium.

Thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate and other B vitamins regulate various chemical reactions in the human body. Vitamin B-1 or thiamin, for instance, aids in energy production and metabolism. Folic acid supports the formation of red blood cells and promotes cell growth. Niacin has been linked to a lower risk of heart disease, lung injury and cancer. This nutrient regulates cellular signaling and plays a key role in DNA production.

In addition to B-complex vitamins, oat straw tea is high in minerals like iron, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium and selenium. It also contains amino acids, such as tryptophan, lysine, leucine and arginine. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, helping to build and preserve muscle, support healthy energy levels and healthy metabolism.

Uses:

Due to its high nutritional value, this healthful concoction has numerous therapeutic properties. In clinical trials, wild green oat extract has been shown to improve cognitive function and overall mental performance. For this reason, it's often used as a natural nootropic.

Other studies have found that oat straw may help with nicotine withdrawal by reducing anxiety levels. It also relieves stress and promotes relaxation, leading to better sleep and feelings of well-being. Researchers believe that the alkaloids in oats are responsible for these beneficial effects.

Even though oat straw is often marketed as a sexual enhancer, these claims are not backed up by science. The same goes for its ability to improve prostate health. Studies suggest that this herb may increase free testosterone levels and improve sexual function, but the evidence is weak.

Oat straw tea does, however, provide large doses of calcium and other nutrients. Calcium keeps your bones strong, supports muscle function and promotes cardiovascular health. Even the slightest deficiency can lead to muscle spasms, loose teeth, high blood pressure and arrhythmia. In the long run, it may increase your risk of osteoporosis and arthritis. Drinking oat straw tea is a safe, convenient way to increase your calcium intake and prevent deficiencies.

The amino acids in oat straw improve brain function and induce feelings of wakeful relaxation. This herb appears to change brain-wave patterns and enhance mental focus. Its benefits are more evident in adults with mild cognitive impairment.

Preparation of Oat Straw Tea

Making oat straw tea at home is easy. Simply add up to 3 teaspoons of dried oat straw to a cup filled with boiling water. Cover it with a lid and let it soak for about 15 minutes. Drink this mixture two or three times a day to reap the benefits.
