Wheat Germ Oil Description

Suggested use: 6/day (best taken on empty stomach)

Wheat Germ Oil is one of the richest sources of the complete Vitamin E Complex. Wheat Germ Oil provides phytochemicals with antioxidant activity, important for cell-signaling molecules, supports the cells of the immune system and the body's natural inflammatory response function and supports the body's function during exercise. Vitamin E, protector of nerve cells, is believed a breakthrough in treatment of Alzheimer's disease.

The embryo of the wheat berry (wheat germ) contains the highest forms of biologically active vitamin E and is the most concentrated food source of Vitamin E in the world, 65% by weight.

Cold Processed wheat germ oil is excellent oil. Wheat berry is broken down in the roller mill during the milling process, and the germ and the bran are separated from the carbohydrate. The carbohydrate is pulverized and sold as white flour. The germ carries the oil, which carries the vitamin E. The bran carries the vitamin B factors. So the pigs that get the wheat germ get the vitamin E, the cows that get the bran get the vitamin B, and we humans are sold the starch. Just like eating cardboard. So that's the trouble with refined flour. This is where the Wheat Germ Oil comes in for people who need vitamin E.

This is the best source of vitamin E in a balanced form. It is not only the tocopherols, but the whole vitamin E complex. Vitamin E acts as an inhibitor of oxidation processes in body tissues. It protects unsaturated fats in the body from oxidation by peroxides and other free radicals. In fact, the tocopherols are used commercially as antioxidants to retard the spoiling of fats, especially other vegetable oils. Vitamin E is especially active in tissue cell walls, where it protects lipid membranes and strengthens this most basic cellular defensive line. It is also essential to the proper function of lysosomes, tiny organelles within the cell that transport potent chemicals to help maintain cellular security.

How Wheat Germ Oil keeps you healthy:

  • Supports the cell membranes of all tissues in the human body, especially those in the nervous system Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects and repairs cell membranes, especially those of nerve cells, from damage by the highly reactive oxygen compounds known as free radicals. The nerves need antioxidant support because free radicals are produced at an increased rate in nerve cells.
  • Supports the proper functioning of the cardiovascular system Vitamin E in wheat germ oil protects lipoproteins in the blood from damage by free radical oxygen and, in doing so, helps prevent the buildup of fatty deposits in the cell wall of the cardiovascular system.
  • Maintains eye lens transparency The eyes are continually bombarded with ultraviolet rays that cause the release of tissue-damaging free radicals. Vitamin E can help preserve the clarity of the eye lens.
  • Protects material in the cell nucleus from damaging free radicals Studies have shown that vitamin E protects guanosine amino acid, a component of DNA, from damage by hydroxyl and superoxide radicals. It destroys peroxynitrite, a substance similar to the nitrogen dioxide compounds present in cigarette smoke. It also detoxifies singlet oxygen and peroxy radicals, thus protecting cell membranes, including those adjacent to nucleic material.

So, Wheat Ger Oil

  • Provides phytochemicals with antioxidant activiy
  • Important for cell-signaling molecules
  • Supports the cells of the immune system and the body's natural inflammatory response function as it relates to periodic challenges like consumption of a high-fat meal or strenuous activity
  • Supports the body's function during exercise
