Claims regarding Avena Sativa
herb and extract
Promoters say avena sativa frees up bound testosterone to free testosterone in the blood, making it more active as a natural enhancement pill. However, I have not come across any published studies that prove this point, nor have I come across any studies published in the medical literature regarding the effectiveness of avena sativa as a sex booster or as a treatment for erectile dysfunction.
Most claims for avena sativa rest on research conducted during the 1980s by the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco, which markets a line of avena sativa products. According to an article in Nutrition Action Healthletter, the one study on men and women that compared avena sativa to a placebo was never published in a peer-reviewed journal. Institute head Ted McIlvenna, says "in part because we didn't want our competitors citing it to sell their own products." But that hasn't stopped erroneous accounts of the research from circulating.
Yet when you analyze a summary of the study provided by McIlvenna, it's impossible to tell whether there was any meaningful difference between the avena-sativa-takers and the placebo-takers. One finding was clear, though. The 25 women who completed the study did better on the placebo. McIlvenna says that as a result of the study, the Institute reformulated its product for women. But he declined to release the details of a second study, in women only, that he claims shows that the reformulated product works.
Avena sativa herb questions
Can avena sativa be used safely by someone with high blood pressure?
We have not seen any human studies that have evaluated the influence of this herbal extract on blood pressure, so we don't know. Generally if a person uses low dosages of herbs, there is little likelihood of any significant influence on blood pressure.
Has there been an avena sativa study for sexual
improvement since 2006 in humans?
We cannot find such a study.
Which is more potent, avena sativa or
tongkat ali? What about
deer antler velvet, is it potent?
The latter two are more potent.
