Milky Oats are one of the best herbs for soothing and restoring the nervous system. Milky Oats work specifically on the myelin sheath that encases the axons of the nervous system. Those with ‘frayed nerves’ will benefit from a daily infusion of milky oats.
Oats are also great in the treatment of depression and fatigue as they contain a soluble fibre called avenalin as well as silica and calcium which are all useful in restoring adrenal, nerve and cardiac health.
We harvest oat seed heads when they are maturing, in the ‘milky’ stage, when they are full of medicinal white latex.
