Traditional Information*

Oat strengthens and nourishes the nervous system.  It is indicated for nervous exhaustion, sexual neurasthenia and occipital pain extending toward the spine. Oat reduces withdrawal effects from nicotine and caffeine. Used for neurasthenia (nervous exhaustion), anxiety, impaired sleep patterns and weak libido, milky Oat is one of our best remedies for chronic stress. It contains calcium and magnesium which are essential nutrients for the nervous tissue. Oat soothes the frayed feeling brought on by “burning the candle at both ends.”
