The nutritious and restorative powers of green oats are famous around the world after first being made popular by Indian healers. This potent herb derives from the wild oat plant, and it goes by the names common oats or oat straw in some parts of the world. Within the scientific community, the term Avena Sativa was coined to refer to green oats. That said, here are five excellent benefits that come from eating green oats.

It Cultivates a Healthy Sex Drive

According to studies, green oats can tackle problems around a dwindling libido, with many labeling them “Nature’s Viagra.” In men, the chemicals within the oats stimulate the pituitary glands to increase the production of luteinizing hormones, which in turn bolster the levels of testosterone. It also unchains any jailed testosterone, ensuring a delicate hormonal balance for better energy levels and sexual response. On the flip side, it also increases stimulation in women through its improvement of blood flow. Across some cultures, Avena Sativa has also cropped up among coping alternatives for bloating and menstrual cramps.

Green Oats Improve Cardiovascular Health

Those with high blood pressure complications stand to benefit by eating Avena sativa, whose antioxidant content helps to ensure blood pressure doesn’t spiral out of control. You can also credit this cardiovascular property to it being a fiber-rich food. Additionally, this fiber composition bolsters the level of good cholesterol in the bloodstream while alleviating the amount of bad cholesterol. With upwards of twenty chemicals bearing adept antioxidant traits, green oats can also tackle inflammation and redness. These two symptoms are at the core of many terrible diseases, and this usage could provide valuable insight into battling related illnesses.

It Aids in Bone Development

Calcium is an essential bone-strengthening compound, and green oats have plenty of this and other essential minerals. Given the organic nature of the calcium in the composition, it’s easy for the body to assimilate without any hassle. Also, this form of the element is more potent than supplement-based or inorganic varieties. In some medical circles, it’s been touted for keeping osteoporosis and other bone diseases at bay.

Green Oats Can Fight Withdrawal Symptoms

Addictions to morphine and nicotine are quite severe and typically include withdrawal consequences such as headaches and shivers, to name a few. These oats contain compounds which can somewhat step in for the addictive compounds, ensuring that insatiable craving, which leads to relapse, is kept at arm’s length. Moreover, it circumvents irritability, decreases stress and eases tension for better nervous system health.

Helps Promote Beautiful Skin

If you take some time to go through the ingredient lists of your moisturizer and other skincare products, you’ll notice green oats are a common ingredient. Due to their accumulation of natural antioxidants green oats can better repair cellular health arising from sunburn or rashes. What’s more, this property makes it an excellent anti-aging compound that tackles wrinkles and other blemishes that come with aging.

Enhances Your Body’s Defense System

Last but by no means least, green oats can better your body’s defense systems. Its abundance of vitamins B1, B2, D, E, steroidal compounds, alkaloids, minerals, and flavonoids ensures white blood cells have the resources they need to maintain an active immune system.
