Oats

Oat (Avena sativa) is a light-green annual grass with a bushy root. Oats originated in England, France, Poland, Germany, and Russia but are now cultivated worldwide. The fruit, leaves, stem, and seeds are are used. Oats are often consumed as part of the diet and are a good source of protein, fat, and fiber. Oats are a great source of beta-glucan, which is a soluble fiber. Beta-glucan is thought to be responsible for the cholesterol-lowering effects of oat. Oat also contains alpha-tocotrienols. Oat is a member of the Poaceae/Gramineae family.

Since oat is a dietary fiber, it influences the regularity of bowel movement. Oat is often used for disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, gallbladder, kidney, and cardiovascular systems. It is used for constipation, diarrhea, rheumatism, throat and chest complaints, fatigue, hypertension, lowering uric acid levels, and in tonics. Oat is said to have sedative, and diuretic effects.

Food Sources Oats are usually very well tolerated. However, because of the high fiber content, they cause increased frequency of defecation, iriitation, gaseous distention, and flatulence. To minimize side effects, doses should be slowly titrated to the desired level. Adverse reactions typically subside with continued use.
