Avena Sativa (Green Oat Seed)
The milk stage of oat seeds provides one of the most soothing and gentle, tonics for supporting healthy nerves. In addition to gramine and avenin, milky oat seeds are a rich source of nerve tonifying B-vitamins and minerals. The herb is also known for having a soothing effect on the brain, for reducing anxiety, increasing energy levels and reducing nicotine cravings. It is also recognised for its ability to heighten the sense of touch and make physical sensations more pleasurable; for this reason it is considered a natural aphrodisiac and is often included in herbal formulas to improve sexual performance in both men and women.
Avena Sativa may increase testosterone levels by enhancing LH (luteinizing hormone) release; this has the effect of increasing the free testosterone levels. Then there is also the testosterone which during the aging process becomes more bound to other compounds in the body, making it less effective than the free testosterone. Research shows that Avena Sativa can also free up this bound testosterone, making it more efficient in the body. Apart from increasing testosterone, Avena Sativa is also known for building lean muscle. Hence, this supplement may well be of use to athletes and bodybuilders.
Montmorency Tart Cherries
Much research has centered on the health benefits of tart cherries. Both sweet and tart cherries contain pigments called anthocyanins which give cherries that dark red colour. Anthocyanins act as powerful antioxidants and are known to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Tart Cherries are one of the top fruits when it comes to antioxidant levels. Researches have also discovered that tart cherries especially the Montmorency Cherries have an extremely significant quantity of melatonin, which is known to help slow the aging process and to help regulate sleep. They also contain potassium, magnesium, calcium and B-vitamins.
