A note from @The_Smile_Enthuisiast, longevity coach and co-creator of our Medicinal Herbal Blends.
Oatstraw is an incredible healing herb which is full of vitamins and minerals. It’s rich in vitamins A, C, E, K, & B-complex, and minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium, silica, and zinc. Momma Smiles used this herb in combination with horsetail—after she broke her knee. She feels it sped up her recovery time.
I use this herb because its highly beneficial for strengthening my teeth and bones, and is a great preventative intervention for osteoporosis—something I’m not interested in developing as my journey progresses here on planet earth. I also utilize this medicinal herb because it’s known to be particularly beneficial for the endocrine system and for supporting and balancing the adrenal glands… 2 parts of my body that I care for, and am very mindful of now--especially since I used to be an adrenaline junkie since my early years—plus, I used to suffer through painful and erratic periods—something I’m not looking to re-live again. I’m also a super-fan of this medicinal herb because It helps me out in the “cognitive department”…It helps to sharpen my memory, focus, and concentration skills.
So what other sort of symptoms or conditions would I use oatstraw for?
If I battled with brain fog, anxiety, depression, stress, nervous tension, and insomnia, oatstraw would be in my herbal rotation--to use regularly in my herbal infusions, as it benefits the nervous system tremendously.
If I broke anything on my body, oatstraw would be in every single herbal infusion that I consumed. Medical Medium says that oatstraw helps to strengthen teeth, blood vessels, and nerve sheaths making it an important herb for the skeletal, circulatory, and neurological systems.
Since oatstraw has some powerful diuretic properties, it can help to reduce cramping, bloating, inflammation, kidney stones, urinary tract infections, water retention, edema, and lymphatic swelling.
