Uses: Oatstraw is a great source of calcium which helps build strong, flexible bones along with nourishing hair, cartilage and teeth. Oatstraw also helps improve circulatory and nervous system functioning. The mucilaginous properties make it particularly helpful for damage to the myelin sheath which covers and protects nerve fibers. Oatstraw is a full body tonic which strengthens your immunity and builds energy. Oatstraw is high in vitamins A, D and E, zinc and silicon, all of which are beneficial to your skin too. Traditionally, oatstraw extract has been used to relieve stress, anxiety, and depression.
Caution: Oatstraw extract has not been linked to any major side effects or medication interactions, but research on its safety is limited. Additionally, the extract has not been studied in children or women who are pregnant or nursing, so it’s unclear whether this supplement is safe to use in these populations.
