Product Description Herbalists Comments Supplement Facts and Ingredients
 

Go ahead, open the bag. That's pure, freshly packaged organic Oats milky tops. Prepared with love for optimum potency.

These dried tops may be prepared as a tea/infusion or used to create an extract (tincture), or as directed by your health care professional.

Parts Used & Where Grown

The common oat used in herbal supplements and foods is derived from cultivated sources. For some herbal supplements, the green or rapidly dried aerial parts of the plant are harvested just before reaching full flower. Many herbal texts refer to using the fruits (seeds) or green tops. Although some herb texts discuss oat straw, there is little medicinal action in this part of the plant.

How It Works

The fruits (seeds) contain alkaloids, such as gramine and avenine, and saponins, such as avenacosides A and B.* The seeds are also rich in iron, manganese, and zinc.* Oat alkaloids are believed to account for the relaxing action of oats, but it should be noted this continues to be debated in Europe.* The German Commission E does not approve this herb as a sedative. However, an alcohol-based tincture of the fresh plant has reportedly shown some promise in countering nicotine withdrawal and helping with smoking cessation.*
