When we talk about Avena sativa, mostly we are referring to the common oat. A species of cereal grain made famous by its seed; it has been at the core of both human and livestock nutrition since the dawn of humanity.
So there has been an understandable tendency in the world of nutrition to overlook the the grass to which that oat was once attached, favouring the libido boosting properties of its more famous seed. Swanson Full Spectrum Green Oat Grass is here to buck that trend. Utilising instead the the green straw part of the plant. Traditionally used as a herbal supplement for nervous system health support, the green grass of the Avena Sativa is more beneficial than most people think.
So popular, in fact, is Green Oat Grass that is fast becoming considered a new superfood. With the rise in popularity of other members of the grass family such as Alfalfa and Wheatgrass, it almost seemed inevitable that we would soon find merit in their less glamorous cousin, the Green Oat.
