Oats have been used traditionally as a nerve tonic for hundreds of years. It is the seed which is used medicinally as well as for food. Fresh oat seed contains high levels of vitamin B, minerals and other nutrients. These are recognised to be important and beneficial for the proper functioning of the nervous system. Oats contain a group of substances which have a calming effect on the nervous system, the most active of which, gramine, has been shown to relax muscles. The balance of constituents present in oat seed probably accounts for the restorative benefits in depression, states of debility and exhaustion and the traditional use as a nerve tonic.
Avena sativa herb, oat straw, contains a number of plant chemicals when extracted including a substance known as gramine. The amount of these plant substances is highest just as the Avena sativa plant is about to break into flower and the seeds begin to form which is when the compounds are extracted from the wild oats.
