Wheat Germ Oil
|This is one of our key products you definitely want to know about--- because we are not like the other E's on the market. Springreen Wheat Germ Oil is recognized as THE superior source of the Vitamin E complex.
According to Judith DeCava, in her brilliant book, The Real Truth About Vitamins and Antioxidants, TRUE Vitamin E, contrary to popular belief, is NOT the same as d-alpha-tocopherol (naturally "derived"-but no longer in it's natural state!) or dl-alpha-tocopherol (synthetically produced).
D-Alpha tocopherol, what most vitamin companies call their Vitamin E, is ONLY the outer skin of Vitamin E, serving in an antioxidant capacity.
True Vitamin E is a synergistic living complex, which includes:
1. 4 protective skins - alpha, beta, delta and gamma tocopherols
2. Coenzyme Q
4. Unsaturated Fatty Acids
5. Several other factors
Our Wheat Germ Oil capsules contain 73% wheat germ oil, an excellent
source of the natural vitamin E complex; and 27% flaxseed oil, a rich
source of unsaturated, essential fatty acids: linoleic and linolenic
(omega-6 and omega-3). Vitamin E is an essential dietary component that
is necessary for antioxidant activity in membranes. It regenerates
other cellular antioxidants (i.e. selenium and glutathione) after they
become oxidized.* The essential fatty acids also must be obtained in
the diet, and are precursors for many hormones and metabolically active
compounds. Light, oxygen and high temperatures destroy vitamin E and
fatty acids very rapidly. Therefore, the wheat germ and flax seed are
pressed at a low temperature in the absence of light and oxygen. The
oil is then encapsulated in a bovine gelatin capsule for protection and
easy consumption. The natural vitamin E in our foods is destroyed during cooking and
processing due to heat, light, air and freezing. Grains lose up to 80%
of their vitamin E content when milled. Commercially processed
vegetable oils are low in vitamin E. It has become quite clear that
there is a need for natural vitamin E supplementation in our modern
Great care has been taken to obtain a wheat germ oil that still retains
the nutritional "life" and vitamin E complex contained in the oil. Our
original measuring stick was for it to turn rancid if exposed to the
air. Currently, we routinely test this product for oxidation. Our
product is extracted from the original wheat germ sac by a "cold rolled
process" wherein the sac itself is first given an electric "flash heat"
to soften it so the cold rolls can extract the oil. It must then be
refrigerated immediately to prevent rancidity and it remains
refrigerated until it is put into capsules.
Our Wheat Germ Oil comes in 11 minim capsules. Each capsule supplies
456 mg of wheat germ oil and 171 mg of flax seed oil. Flax seed
contains two to three times as much essential fatty acids per unit
weight as does wheat germ oil alone. Hence, we use both to get maximum
nutrition per capsule.
