Oat grass is a very well known crop, but isn’t used in the way our ancestors used it anymore. When it was found that feeding animals a corn based diet would expedite the growing process and make them gain weight quickly, corn became the number one source of animal feed. Traditionally, animals are meant to eat grass, a diet heavy in corn is very unhealthy and causes a lot of pain for the animal because of how difficult it is to digest. But the only thing that matters is getting them into the slaughter-house as soon as possible.
Oats are still popular for humans. Especially for foods such as oatmeal and oat bran. But the best way to get all the nutritious, whole food benefits of oats is to take it in its grass form. Usually in a powder, or juiced. You can add the powder to fresh fruit juice, and the taste will be much more pleasant.

A lot of my studies have been on the liver, and just how important they are to our bodies and good health. Our livers are responsible for so much that we absolutely must become more aware of how to keep it healthy. Our livers break down all our foods, cleanses the toxins in our bodies, processes all of our sensory input, and is our heat-furnace. It’s the only organ in the body that can regenerate.
Our livers are extremely abused in our society, and Oat Grass can play an important role in helping to heal our livers.
