Oats

Oats (Avena sativa) are a classic restorative tonic that bridges the gap between herbs and food. Oats (sometimes called Wild Oats or Oats milky seed) are of the natural order Graminacea or grass family. Eclectic and physiomedical practitioners used the extract of the green oat seed “in the milk” supporting healthy sleep patterns, promoting healthy heart function and maintaining healthy nerves.* It was also used to support sexual function.*
