Avena sativa is a traditional herbal nerve tonic made from fresh oat seeds. Itis known to have a nutritive and restorative action on the nervous system. It also has mild sedative properties.
The nervous system controls and integrates all the activities of the body - not only on a physical level but also psychologically.
The system may become debilitated and fatigued through factors such as stress, shock and faulty nutrition. In these circumstances a nerve tonic plays a useful role, strengthening, feeding and revitalising the system.
As Avena sativa is such a mild sedative, it may be used to calm fractious children. It has been used successfully for the clinical treatment of hyperactivity in children, in conjunction with appropriate dietary changes.
Avena sativa has also been used to treat addiction - the most common form inour modern society is the dependence on nicotine. Withdrawal of this, or any other drug, would draw on both the psychological and physical reserves of the individual.
Mode of Action:
• Mild sedative
• Nerve tonic
Avena sativa contains high amounts of vitamin B, minerals and other nutrients necessary for the proper functioning of the nervous system. These constituents probably account for the 'restorative' benefits in anxiety, debility and exhaustion.
Avena sativa also contains indole alkaloids, the most active of which is known as gramine. These have been shown to relax smooth muscle and exert a sedative action on the nervous system. It is of benefit to those suffering from chronic anxiety, hyperactivity and insomnia.
Research carried out by two Edinburgh physicians using the electroencephalogram(EEG) to assess sleep quality, has shown that those usingAvena sativa had a quieter sleep than those in the control group.
Avena sativa is a safe remedy to use in children and its calming action can beof advantage in irritable and fractious children.
Despite being such a commonly used food, oats have a significant degree of sedative action. Ayurvedic physicians have used oats to help with opium withdrawal. Good results have been obtained using the herb to aid nicotine withdrawal. Avena sativa has also been used to help with the symptoms of withdrawal from alcohol and narcotic drugs. (Note: The alcohol content of the tincture can easily be burnt off by placing the required drops in hot water for 5-10 minutes before ingestion.)
