Oatstraw herb is harvested from unripe tops of Avena sativa, more commonly known oats. Although the hot cereal made from mature oats is highly nutritious, oatstraw provides even more calcium and iron, as well as soluble fiber. Because herbalists often refer to oatstraw as the “mother’s milk” of health-supporting plants, the herb is also known as “milky oats.”
