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 prevent 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.
Oat straw is highly recommended as an herb for eczema and rheumatism.
The primary chemical constituents of Oat Straw includes saponins, flavonoids, starch, alkaloids (trigonelline, avenine), steroids, calcium, iron, B vitamins, lysine, and methionine.
The seeds are 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.
Hot Tea: add 1 tsp. or 1 tea bag of straw to 1 cup of hot boiled water for 10-15 min. Add milk and sugar to taste.
