Oat Grass Powder
Oat grass is part of the cereal grass family and joins other powerhouse grasses such as wheatgrass and barley grass. These green grasses (either juiced or freeze dried and powdered) have been called some of nature's finest medicines. They contain chlorophyll, enzymes, vitamins, and nutrients that are essential for a healthy body. Like the other cereal grasses, oat grass contains beta-carotene, vitamins K and C, folic acid, calcium, iron, protein, fiber, and B vitamins; it also has up to 30% protein and is illuminated with rich chlorophyll - nature's blood cleanser.
At an early stage, prior to jointing, oat grass is a soft, green grass, very similar to its lookalike wheatgrass. It is at this point that oat grass has reached its nutritional peak and can be harvested for juicing or for use as an ingredient in health supplements. The grass juice has an intense flavor and a grassy smell reminiscent of wide open meadows. Oat grass has a relaxing and stimulating action that both nourishes and strengthens the nervous system and has been shown to be helpful for womens's health issues, arthritis, rheumatism, stress, depression, debility, exhaustion, nerve tremors, epilepsy, convalescence, palpitations, nervous headache, nervous stomach, nervous breakdown, cholesterol levels, herpes, and menopause symptoms
