Wheat germ can be considered almost as a separate discourse for the amount of information it derives from. So much so that germ is the most important part of seed as it is the precondition for the birth and growth of the wheat sprout; an embryo rich in nutrients such as vitamins (groups B and E), amino acids, mineral salts (phosphorus, potassium and magnesium), proteins, fibers, antioxidants and lipid fats (considered as "good"). The arguments to be made are many, ranging from the ability to fill in the deficiencies of the Mediterranean diet (which is increasingly present today as hypercaloric and poor in nutritional principles in contrast to what is the widespread idea) to the point of establishing a an important supplement for all people who practice sport, even and above all on a competitive level, thanks to the presence of octacosanol that improves physical efficiency (glycogen contained in the germ has the ability to strengthen the muscles for increased physical strength) and mental (improves the performance of the pituitary gland, the skull base gland controlling the metabolic system).

 

From a strictly nutritional point of view, the germ promotes intestinal motility and gives greater satiety which makes it ideal for low-calorie diets; In addition, the linoleic acid contained therein is one of the essential fatty acids of Omega 6, an important ally for the prevention of cardiovascular disease.
