Benefits of Oat Straw
Reduces Cholesterol and Blood Sugar
Have high cholesterol? Adding oat straw to your diet could make all the difference in the world. To lower cholesterol, it is best to consume 5-10 grams of soluble fiber on a daily basis. Luckily, oat straw is chock-full of fiber, which is also a good sign for diabetics. By eating 25 grams of soluble fiber daily, blood sugar may see a considerable reduction.

Physical Performance
If you want to up your performance in the gym, using oat straw may be able to help you out. Oat straw (along with other herbs such as ginseng and rhodiola) has been a long-time energy booster. However, there is insufficient scientific evidence suggesting this truly is the case. Researchers continue to study oat straw and its potential benefits, including its ability to boost physical performance.

Mental Health
There is evidence, however, that oat straw, also known as Avena sativa, can have a beneficial effect on mental health. Some of the mental health benefits of oat straw extract include its ability to treat depression and anxiety. Oat straw has been in use for years to treat mood disorders, though more research is necessary to determine its full potential as a legitimate remedy for such conditions.

How does oat help with anxiety and depression and other mental health disorders, though? One reason is due to its known characteristic of boosting electric brain activity, which enhances cognitive ability.

Skin Health
Have you ever heard of someone taking an oatmeal bath? Well, there’s a method behind the madness. Believe it or not, oat straw is a useful supplement for skin health. Oats are known to relieve itchy skin and may serve as an effective treatment for various conditions that cause skin irritation (x). Oat straw may even be able to accelerate the healing of wounds.

Relieves Diarrhea
There are very few things worse than a bad case of diarrhea. Thankfully, there are a variety of treatments for diarrhea — and oat straw may be one of them. According to a study done on 45 female Holstein calves, oats helped increase protein digestibility and reduced diarrhea’s duration.

Treats Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Diarrhea isn’t the only digestive issue that oats can help solve. Those suffering from inflammatory bowel disease can also use oat straw as a simple remedy. The higher the fiber content, the fewer issues that develop in the digestive tract .

Could Improve Blood Flow
In one study, 37 adults over the age of 60 took 1,500 mg of oat straw extract over 24 weeks. Results showed that supplementation with oat straw extract helped to substantially improve blood flow in comparison to the placebo.

May Fight Cancer
Cancer has no known cure, but it is preventable. Oats, for example, are a beta-glucan. Beta-glucans are immunomodulators and have shown anticancer properties. Much research still needs to be conducted to further legitimize the oat’s potential as a cancer combatant, but early indications are positive.
