Health Benefits of Wheat Germ
Boosts heart health: The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests that half of our carbohydrate intake should come from excellent whole-grains such as wheat germ. A diet rich in whole grains is suggested to limit risks for heart disease and can boost the immune system.
Inhibits cancerous growth: A diet rich in wheat germ can help reduce risks for various types of cancers by interrupting glucose metabolism and inhibiting kinases, which is linked to cancer cell growth.
Helpful for skin and hair: As a dietary supplement, wheat germ is so high in vitamins and minerals that it can improve skin quality and prevent hair loss. When eaten regularly, wheat germ can ease conditions such as dull complexion, eczema, psoriasis and sunburn.
Wonderful for women: The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism found that wheat germ consumption can benefit menopausal women’s heart health. Other studies have shown that wheat germ may help limit some symptoms of menopause. Pregnant women will benefit from the folic acid in wheat germ, which is healthy for growing fetuses.
Made for muscles: Wheat germ packs plant-based protein which can help build healthy, lean muscles. Protein also repairs damaged tissues and promotes homeostasis in the body.
