The evidence has only emerged in recent years, but it seems the term “sow your wild oats” has roots in health science. Green oat has been used for centuries in Chinese medicine as a treatment for low libido. The grain was also popular in Anglo-Saxon homeopathy. They were once considered one of five culinary treatments for female infertility.
Oats, (including oat bran and oat straw), may be among the most potent and least expensive edible libido enhancers. In controlled studies, the power of concentrated oats has been proven to significantly raise testosterone levels in members of the rugged sex. They are also rich in B vitamins and a good source of fiber.
