DESCRIPTION
Oatstraw is, as its name suggests, the above-ground parts of the oat plant. Oats are one of the plants that humans have eaten since prehistoric times.

Oat straw has been used to support brain health since the Middle Ages, and its proponents say it can reduce the risk of heart disease, increase energy, reduce anxiety and improve physical and possibly even sexual performance.

While its exact mechanism of action isn't known, oat straw is believed to have several functions. Studies suggest oat straw increases brainwaves called alpha-2 waves, which are more prominent during wakefulness. It may also increase nitric oxide and suppress inflammatory cytokines in artery walls, which can increase blood flow to the brain and help you feel more alert. In fact, one study showed that volunteers who consumed oat straw performed significantly better on cognitive tests.
