The New Superfood: Oat Straw

It seems there’s always an emerging superfood in the world of wellness. Whether it’s blueberries, blackberries, acai berries, or ginger root, many health-conscious individuals seek general well-being through a carefully monitored, antioxidant-heavy diet. This is certainly an effective way to boost immunity and maximize longevity, but it’s important to pay attention to the research rather than blindly following marketing claims.

Despite it's popularity, POM recently faced a catastrophic lawsuit which attacked the company for exaggerating health claims associated with POM's products.

Today, oat straw (Avena Sativa) is quickly gaining recognition for its wide range of wellness benefits. Those familiar with the herb tout it as the Next Big Thing for its role in improved sleep, mental acuity, cholesterol management, and anxiety reduction.

Though many are familiar with the benefits of oatmeal in relation to skin treatments, oat straw is the green oat grass in its "milky" stage before the oat matures.

Oat straw is high in calcium and minerals which can lead to strong teeth and bones. Some believe it to have cholesterol lowering properties. Studies show individuals demonstrate improved cognitive performance when they consume Avena Sativa prior to conducting mentally taxing tasks.

Finally, the herb contains Vitamin B, which research links to alertness, increased energy, and anti-anxiety properties.

Awesome blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress
or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that
I'm totally confused .. Any tips? Kudos!
