Also known as
Avena sativa, Oat grass
The Oat grass we stock is the above ground parts of the oat plant, Avena sativa, which have been harvested after the grain has been removed. Oat grass has been used for centuries as a nerve tonic, a nutritive, & a sedative. 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.
Oats are the only cereal grain that contain 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 is safe to eat for individuals with minor gluten-sensitivities. Oat grass, containing a very negligible amount of protein, is even safer than the oat kernel itself. Oats & oat grass contain a very large amount of soluble fiber which contributes to feelings of satiety and a 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, & chlorophyll.
Can be eaten directly or added to smoothie or shake. Can be added to home-made nutritional bars, salsa or salad dressing for a nutritious and tasty mix. Extremely tasty & sweet.
Oat grass is a convenient way to supplement your body with a wide range of different nutrients, minerals, & anti-oxidants while encouraging detoxification through a few different mechanisms, chiefly chlorophyll. Oat grass is excellent for stress, reducing blood pressure & cholesterol, & does not interact as strongly with gluten & grain sensitive individuals. Oats stand alone amongst other grains & grasses, and is the favorite of many for good reason.
