WHEATGERM OIL: Benefits, Sources and Side effects

Wheat germ oil is very high in vitamin E so it is often used as a source of vitamin E both internally and externally. Vitamin E is an antioxidant, which plays an important role in the body by helping to prevent damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are by-products of chemical reactions that take place in the body.


They cause damage by interacting with cell membranes, proteins and cell DNA. Vitamin E is particularly important for healthy skin since free radicals caused by pollutants and sunlight can damage skin cells. Octacosanol is another ingredient in wheat germ, which may help maintain overall vitality.
