Green Oats (Avena Sativa) is a botanical extract that has traditionally been used to increase strength, mind, spirit and body. It is an extract from wild oats straw which are harvested during their milky stage. References to the sexually stimulating effects of oats have been found up to 200 years ago in the German Pharmacopoeia. Modern studies at the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality have shown that the extract helps improve interest in sex.

Oats have been a traditional food for people recovering from illnesses. It’s primarily used to supplement fiber in the diet. In the 12th century, it has been reported that wild green oats are used as mood enhancers and contribute to a clear, sharp mind. It also builds strength which benefits those suffering chronic fatigue.

Currently though, oats are more commonly associated with heart health and considered a slow release carbohydrate that can help keep sugar levels at a steady. The extract from its wild counterpart (green oats - avena sativa) is also becoming a popular natural alternative to pharmaceutical erection enhancers without the dangerous side effects. In men it is effective for treating impotence and premature ejaculation. In women it reportedly increases sexual desire.

A research conducted by an Israeli company, Frutarom, which was announced in 2006, helped support the efficacy of green oats use in the middle ages. They discovered that green oats can provide positioning opportunities in the areas of cognitive support, concentration enhancement, stress and burnout, chronic fatigue, mood balance and nerve strengthening.

In 1986, the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality, a graduate school specializing in Sexology, conducted a pilot study of green oats. The volunteers in the study expressed interest in improving their sexual response. Their dysfunction/dissatisfaction ranged from male impotence and female lack of desire to inability to respond sexually. The volunteers, ages 22-64, consisted of 20 men and 20 women who were given a 300 mg capsule of Avena Sativa extract; which they took three days a week for six weeks. Men experienced a 22% increase in genital sensation and women experienced a 15% increase in genital sensation. Men experienced a 36% increase in the frequency of orgasms and women experienced a 29% increase in the frequency of orgasms.

According to the study, green oats helps boost the sex drive. Researchers discovered that the extract work by freeing up testosterone, which becomes increasingly bound to various compounds within the body with advancing age. Bound testosterone is not nearly as effective as free testosterone in stimulating the sex centers in the brain that generate the sex drive that leads us to seek out and engage in sexual activity. Bound testosterone, by the way, is mainly attributed with enlarged prostates.
