Although we may not say it out loud, we all want to feel unique and stand out from the crowd. Well, here’s the good news: our Wheat Germ Oil has arrived to help you bring out the best in you. Let’s see how this nutritional powerhouse can make you shine from inside out.
#1 What is Wheat Germ Oil?
Wheat germ oil is extracted from the innermost part of the wheat kernel. Its role in nature is to grow new life (wheat grains), therefore it is literally loaded with vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids to be able to carry out its role.
Unlike the regular and refined wheat-based products that we normally come across (read: bread, pastry, pasta, pancakes, etc.), wheat germ oil is actually extremely beneficial for our health.
It is often referred to as “Liquid Gold” and now it’s time to see why it deserves this flashy nickname.
#2 Liquid Gold
There are various reasons why wheat germ oil is often called “Liquid Gold”. One of them is being the richest naturally occurring source of Vitamin E which happens to be one of the most powerful antioxidants out there.
Moving on, it actually packs almost all the vitamin alphabet in it – you’ll also find Vitamin A, D, B and K in wheat germ oil. Furthermore, it also contains a bunch of minerals such as magnesium, potassium, zinc and iron, to name a few.
Last, but not least, wheat germ oil is also a great source of essential fatty acids – Omega-3 and Omega-6, to be more exact.
Now, this might sound slightly overwhelming, but don’t worry, in the next paragraphs I will go on and explain to you how all this can benefit our health.
#3 Wheat Germ Oil Benefits for Skin And Hair
Our skin is becoming more and more exposed to harmful factors and as a result looks tired and feels dry. The nutritious formula of wheat germ oil makes it fantastic for moisturizing your skin and hair from inside out.
This is possible thanks to the Vitamin E as well as the aforementioned essential fatty acids that are present in wheat germ oil. Vitamin E also protects the skin from the adverse effects of oxidative stress.
The high content of Vitamin E makes the wheat germ oil also popular in the cosmetics and toiletries industries. It is said to have a regenerating and revitalizing effect on skin tissue which makes it excellent for reducing scars as well as stretch marks when applying topically.
And yes – you can pop one of our softgels and apply the oil directly on your skin. Your skin will thank you!
#4 Healthy Heart
Starting this section off with a bit of sad news. A growing number of people in America have high cholesterol – an insane 38% of people, to be more exact. This means that all these people are at a high risk of suffering from heart disease.
Thankfully, wheat germ oil is one the natural supplements that can aid with lowering cholesterol. Namely, it contains substances called phytosterols that have been proven to help lower the absorption of cholesterol in the body.
The good news is that studies have indicated that wheat germ oil’s cholesterol lowering effect in the liver and plasma can actually be long-term, meaning it could be considered a serious breakthrough in the dietary management of heart health.
As I mentioned before, wheat germ oil is also highly valued because of its Omega-3 and Omega-6 content which also happen to benefit cardiovascular health by helping to promote healthy blood pressure.
Omega-3 adds yet another layer of protection on the heart health as it helps reduce the risk of developing arrhythmias – an irregular heartbeat.
#5 Improved Immune Response
The recent couple of years have been quite a challenge for everyone. In addition to viruses, we have had to deal with constant stress and uncertainty which also affects our immune response.
Again, wheat germ oil is here to help us. This time it’s about the antioxidant properties of Vitamin E that make wheat germ oil great for giving a boost to your immune system.
The immune response is further supported by the minerals present in wheat germ oil. Zinc and magnesium help to strengthen your immune system and make it more resistant to viruses.
These antioxidants I already mentioned also help our body to neutralize free radicals and fight off the oxidative stress which may help us to prevent certain diseases.
#6 Endless Energy
Wheat Germ Oil is also extremely popular among athletes. This is mainly thanks to yet another magical substance present in wheat germ oil which is called Octacosanol.
This long-chain fatty alcohol is known for boosting stamina and resilience thanks to improving the way our body handles oxygen.
Furthermore, Vitamin E containing supplements are especially welcome among endurance athletes to prevent exercise-induced oxidative damage and help with muscle soreness after the workout.
#7 Is Wheat Germ Oil Safe for Everyone?
The ones who, unfortunately, have to keep away from wheat germ oil are people who suffer from celiac disease or who are sensitive to gluten.
While some manufacturers claim their wheat germ oil is gluten free, we highly doubt if this is something achievable, unless the oil would be refined.
However, in the refining process much of its nutritional properties are lost as well in addition to gluten. Furthermore, there may still be some traces of gluten left after the refining process and oftentimes, wheat germ oil comes from a manufacturing plant where also wheat is processed, therefore cross contamination may be possible.
Although the actual amount of gluten in wheat germ oil is extremely low, we still recommend being cautious when you have celiac disease.
When it comes to the safety of this product for everyone else, as always, our wheat germ oil is manufactured right here in the USA in a GMP-compliant facility and our labs are FDA-inspected, making sure we offer you only premium quality products.

#10 Bonus Track: Other (Possibly Unexpected) Benefits of Wheat Germ Oil
In addition to the myriad of benefits already discussed, there’s still some more. Are you ready?
Many women have found wheat germ oil helpful against menstruation cramps and PMS. Additionally, some women have reported that wheat germ oil has helped them with menopausal symptoms including experiencing lesser hot flashes.
Now, as we already entered the women’s health section, some women have claimed that wheat germ oil has helped them with fertility issues and to actually conceive. As this is merely people’s reports and there is no conclusive scientific evidence to support these claims at this moment, we will just leave it for you to judge.. or try.
