Oats are an annual grain crop that flourishes in temperate areas, more tolerant of cool temperatures and rainy summers than other grains. The wild ancestors of Oats are believed to have originated in the Fertile Crescent, the cradle of Eurasian civilization. Major zones of Oat cultivation today include the European Union, Russia, Canada, Poland, Australia, and Finland.

Oats are a familiar food, and Oat Tops have a less well-known but well-established reputation as an herbal medicine. They are used by herbalists and homeopaths as a nerve tonic, reducing anxiety, calming stress and hyperactivity, and easing withdrawal from nicotine and other substances; as a hormone balancer, treating dysmenorrhea and menopausal symptoms, and enhancing sexual function; and topically, in lotions and bath products, to relieve itchy skin conditions.

Oats are rich in many nutrients that help to restore bones, tendons, muscles, and nerves, and contain pharmacologically active compounds including flavonoids, saponins, sterols, and indole alkaloids.

For health conscious consumers, obtaining organic Oats should be a priority, since many commercial Oat-based products are now known to contain the herbicide glyphosphate. A small percentage of people with gluten intolerance are sensitive to Oat proteins, and those with celiac disease are well advised to be cautious in trying Oats in foods or herbal products.
