What is Wheat Germ Oil?
Wheat Germ Oil comes from the seed or kernel of the wheat plant – the reproductive part of the plant rich in octascosanol, vitamin E and fatty acids. Wheat Germ Oil in fact contains the highest level of vitamin E of any natural food.
Wheat Germ Oil is delicate and can degrade if not stored in cool conditions. As it is difficult to store, A.Vogel has put it in a convenient capsule for you!
Apart from vitamin E, Wheat Germ Oil is also rich in vitamin A and D and lecithin. Many have found it to be beneficial for dry and tired skin. The fatty acids are of the ‘good’ variety type and may help to keep your cholesterol levels in check.
