Ingredients : Oat Grass 100%
It is Avena Sativa and also known as Oat Straw and Button Grass.
Oat Grass belongs to the family Poaceae, joining the other super green grasses such as Wheatgrass and Barleygrass. Paleobotanists place this ancient cereal grass as being cultivated as early as 2000 BCE.
**Oat Grass Benefits**
Oat Grass is extremely rich in antioxidants, including one particularly powerful one called tricin. This flavone compound exerts smooth muscle relaxing properties, making it beneficial for gastrointestinal cramping.
It is also a great source of both soluble and insoluble fibre - insoluble fibre isn’t broken down by the gut and absorbed into the bloodstream. It adds bulk to waste in the digestive system which helps to keep you regular whilst preventing constipation,
Soluble fibre is soft and sticky and absorbs water to form a gel-like substance inside the digestive system. It helps to soften the stool so it can slide through the GI tract more easily and binds to substances like cholesterol and sugar, preventing or slowing their absorption into the blood. That's why it's known to help regulate blood sugar levels and protect against heart disease. What's more, soluble fibre boosts the population of good bacteria in the gut which is linked to improved immunity, anti-inflammatory effects and even enhanced mood.
Alkalises the Body
Our body’s Ph is now known to be of paramount importance, with countless studies pointing to the fact that disease struggles to take hold and thrive in an alkaline environment. Oat Grass is highly alkalising (as are many leafy green vegetables), and as such can provide many healing benefits.
In his ground-breaking book “Healing is Voltage”, Dr Jerry Tennant explains that voltage is synonymous with Ph. He discovered that cells are designed to operate at -22mv which is equivalent to a Ph of 7.35 (slightly alkaline). He found that an alkaline Ph will provide your cells with an electrical charge whilst an acidic Ph depletes this charge. This charge translates into energy within the body – the more charge your cells can store, the more energy you will have.
If you eat too many acid forming foods without counterbalancing with alkaline foods, the body struggles to maintain the blood’s Ph – normal blood Ph is tightly regulated between 7.35 – 7.45, the result of too many acid forming foods is catastrophic to the body in many ways. Firstly it will pull alkalising minerals out of your bones and teeth, such as calcium, magnesium and potassium. This can understandably lead to a whole host of disorders including osteoporosis. The body will also store excess acid in the muscles, one of the primary causes of fibromyalgia. If not kept in check, your body may go into a state of “acidosis”, this occurs when arterial Ph falls below 7.35 - chronic acidosis corrodes body tissue, and if left unchecked, will interrupt all cellular activities and functions.
Oat Grass is very antioxidant rich, containing a recently discovered member of the flavonoid family, tricin. It is recognised as a valuable human health compound due to its antioxidant, anti-aging and cardio-protective potentials.
Everyday stress, pollution and processed foods can lead to the formation of free radicals. These are rogue atoms or atomic groups which have lost at least one electron and are forced to steal electrons from neighbouring molecules in the hope of stabilising themselves which can cause havoc in the body. Tricin is also a prolific free radical scavenger, helping to slow down the aging process and lessening the effects of oxidative stress.
Research shows that impaired blood flow is a risk factor for heart disease and stroke.
Green oat grass contains a unique group of antioxidants called avenanthramides, which have been shown to improve heart health.
In particular, they may improve blood flow by increasing the production of nitric oxide, a molecule that helps dilate blood vessels.
One 24-week study in 37 older adults with excess weight found that supplementing with 1,500 mg of oat straw extract daily significantly improved measures of blood flow in the heart and brain, compared with a placebo.
While research shows that oat straw extract may help maintain a healthy heart, more long-term studies are needed to fully understand its effects.
Chronic inflammation has been shown to increase your risk of conditions like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers.
Oat straw is rich in many antioxidants, including avenanthramides, which have been shown to help reduce inflammation, thereby decreasing your risk of these illnesses.
Additionally, test-tube studies indicate that avenanthramides from oats can reduce the production and secretion of cytokines, which are proinflammatory compounds that are linked to an increased risk of heart disease and other chronic conditions.
May boost brain function
Oat straw may help boost brain function in older adults.
Two studies in older adults with impaired brain function found that supplementing with 800–1,600 mg of green oat extract significantly improved memory, attention, and concentration.
