Oats have long been an agricultural food source, known for their nutritional value and hardy, easy to grow, nature. Oatstraw is from the stalks and flowers and seeds of the oat plant.
Oatstraw is a wonderful medicinal and supplemental herb! Oatstraw contains an amazing amount of nutrients! Rich in Vitamin B, D and E, as well as Magnesium, Calcium, and Iron. This plant has particularly high levels of calcium, making it great for anyone low on calcium seeking a natural supplement. In fact because of its high levels of calcium Oatstraw has been used to treat broken bones and Osteoporosis. For broken bones Oatstraw has been used along with the “Bone Knitter”, Comfrey, and other herbs like horsetail. Oatstraw has also been considered a great way to raise energy levels and increase brain function due to it’s blend of B vitamins and vitamin D. The variety of B vitamins in Oatstraw have led it to even be used as a libido boosting tea! Oatstraw is even a nervine, meaning that it can effectively reduce stress and anxiety, as well as nourish the brain and nervous system. Oatstraw, like oats, is also great for the skin. A tea or balm made with Oatstraw can rehydrate the skin and help treat a number of skin irritations! It doesn’t stop there though! As a tea Oatstraw can help improve many other aspects of health by providing the different systems of the body with the nourishment they need. If used regularly in a tea by itself, or a blend with other herbs, one can expect to notice a much healthier body!
