Wheat Germ

Dr. Oz considers wheat germ a Superfood. It is the nutrient dense kernel of the wheat plant that is unfortunately removed to make white flour!  It is loaded with B vitamins and fiber and has a very mild taste. That’s why Dr. Oz recommends it for those trying to lose weight. The B vitamins plays a role in boosting metabolism of fat.  It also keeps our mood in check by producing mood chemicals in our brain. The fiber content in wheat germ helps keep blood sugar in balance as well as promoting healthy bowel movements. Because of the mild taste, it is easy to incorporate into our diet. Dr. Oz suggests adding 2 tablespoons of wheat germ to yogurt, cereals, your favorite smoothie, salad dressings, meatloaf, meat and fish breading and more.
