Avena sativa (Oat Straw)

$5.00$9.00

The Oat straw we stock is the above-ground parts of the oat plant, Avena sativa, which have been harvested after the grain has been removed. Oat straw has been used for centuries as a nerve tonic, a nutritive, and a sedative. It contains many different nutrients and vital elements for the body and has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to help the body deal with emotional stress.
Oat straw is a convenient way to supplement your body with a wide range of different nutrients, minerals, and antioxidants while encouraging detoxification through a few different mechanisms, primarily chlorophyll. Oat straw is excellent for stress, reducing blood pressure and cholesterol, and does not interact as strongly with gluten and grain-sensitive individuals. Oats stand alone amongst other grains & grasses and are the favorite of many for good reason.

Constituents
Oats are the only cereal grain that contains a globulin or legume-like protein, avenalin, as the major (80%) storage protein. Oat protein is nearly equivalent in quality to soy protein, which World Health Organization research has shown to be equal to meat, milk, and egg protein. Oats contain a minor amount of Avenin, a protein related to gluten, and are safe to eat for individuals with minor gluten sensitivities. Oat straw, containing a very negligible amount of protein, is even safer than the oat kernel itself. Oats and oat straw contain a very large amount of soluble fiber which contributes to feelings of satiety and slower digestion. Oats also contain beta-D-glucans, which have been linked to reducing cholesterol and preventing heart disease. In addition to these benefits, oats contain a well-balanced ratio of B vitamins, minerals, amino acids, vitamins, and chlorophyll.

Use
It can be eaten directly or added to a smoothie or shake. It can be added to homemade nutritional bars, salsa, or salad dressing for a nutritious and tasty mix. Extremely tasty and mildly sweet.
