When I was a young kid, I didn't know better. I never considered to question the fascist world views taught to me by others. Eventually, I realized quite a few things. I began to take an interest in herbal medicine. I've been into it ever sense. What I found out was that plants produce pharmacological chemicals. Phytochemistry, is the branch of chemistry which studies these beneficial alkaloids. Feel free to point this out the next time you witness someone mindlessly blurt out the notion that "there's no scientific evidence behind that".
Having said that, let's talk about what you came here to learn about, which is Oatstraw. Oatstraw is the same Oat that's used in your oatmeal. Who would have guessed right? It's extremely good for you. They contain everything from proteins to fiber, B vitamins, minerals, carbs, fats, etc. They have been shown to lower bad cholesterol, and reduce the risk of heart disease. I personally like to take them and powder them, and add them to soup in reall small amounts. It adds some nutritional value to the end product and really has little to not taste at all. It can also make anything thicker. Let's talk about what you don't know about oats though.
Believe it or not, Oatstraw actually has a reputation among herbalists as a natural aphrodisiac. An aphrodisiac is a term which describes something along the lines of Viagra. They also claim it to have anti-depressant properties. This is likely due to other various phytochemicals which are found within the oats. See, aside from vitamins and minerals, plants also produce phytochemicals, which I mentioned in the first paragraph above. For whatever reason, these chemicals are not mentioned on nutrition labels. Perhaps the public should encourage this by starting petitions.
Another thing most people do not know about Oats is that they contain silicic acid. So what is silicic acid and why does it matter? Well, it's a chemical made by the plant but what's important is that it has the ability to "both reduce aluminium uptake in the digestive system as well as cause renal excretion of aluminium." People working on detoxing from dental amalgam illness may find this interesting.
