Avena sativa is suppossed to be good for freeing up bound test. since older men have greater % of test bound, Avena Sativa should be good as anabolic. I KNOW its good as a libido booster.

does anyone have experience with this?

Hmmm brings a whole new meaning to sewing your wild oats doesn't it?

All that time I thought that gruel was for the poor and down trodden and it seems they were doing them a favor in the poor house feeding em that stuff! Hehehe...

Perhaps eating the wholemeal oats and steel cut variety of oats would be better for you than the highly processed ones as those would still have the use of the whole oat and not be taking away the element that your talking about. I eat the steel cut (wholemeal) variety anyway. ;) Nothing wrong with my love life so I'd give it the thumbs up!

It is actually a tinture made from "oat straw" . I have not used it but have heard of men using it for prostate problems caused from excess levels of DHT .
You queston is interesting if it frees the bound test it would obviously make it available to the body wether it would be enough to be anabolic is a really good question . Maybe I will try some .

Well oral dhea supplements are made by extracting sterols (diosgenin) from wild yams (Dioscorea family) and cleaving several side chains. There is a series of 6 to 8 chemical reactions to form DHEA. So I don't see any reason why other anabolic hormones cannot be derived by doing something similar with other plants. Who knows. Whilst it is derived from oat straw only, generally the same ingredients often find themselves into other parts of the plant. May be weaker or stronger, but they would no doubt still be there to some extent. Oats are also packed with b vitamins and e no doubt which would also mean oat straw is. Possibly it is those vitmains that have an effect on libido?

you sure it's avena sativa and not nettles you're thinking of? I know nettles interferes with 5AR and binds to dht receptors (as well as freeing up test). the avena sativa frees up test but haven't seen anything on dht effect. if anything, levels would prob rise, since more test = more dht after reduction.

I thought I was right about the dht but you could be right . I have read so much lately about herbs that I may be getting confused and overlapping information . I know that is correct about nettles but I was sure I read a similar report on oat straw
I will try to find what I thought I knew over the next couple of days and repost . Sorry if I mislead .
