Wheat germ?

  • Hello,

    Does anyone know of any health benefits of wheat germ?  My boyfriend bought a jar and I'm adding to to my smoothies and cereal to put a teeny bit more of fiber and protein (it's really not very much), and also just to get dietary variety.  But I'm curious if anyone has any knowledge about this.

    Thanks!

  • Lindsay-

    From what I understand, wheat germ is an excellent source of protein and vitamins and has some awesome benefits.  I don't use it myself, because I never have the time to buy it.... I always forget, plus I'm not sure if it's even authorized. I don't see why it wouldn't be..... but maybe someone can hopefully give us some insight?
