The Constituents of Wheat Germ Oil
Wheat germ oil is known to offer health benefits to your liver and your cardiovascular system, and also to help keep your skin looking younger by reducing the effects of acne, psoriasis and other skin blemishes and also the wrinkles and liver spots that are associated with age. What are the constituents of wheat germ oil that promote these benefits to your appearance and your health?
Wheat germ oil contains a large proportion of octacosanol, a long chain primary alcohol that is believed to lower the amount of cholesterol in your blood plasma by reducing your liver's propensity to produce it. Its policosanol content also has an effect in reducing the ratio of LDL cholesterol to the 'good' HDL type. By doing all this, policosanol is making it easier for the antioxidant vitamins A and E to prevent the free radical oxidation of LDL cholesterol from forming the arterial cholesterol plaques known as atherosclerosis.
Finally, the fatty acids linoleic acid (Omega-6) and the Omega-3 linolenic acid work together with the antioxidant vitamins to keep your skin looking young and fresh by reducing the destruction of your skin cells by free radicals that would wrinkle it, form brown liver or age spots, and make you look older than you would otherwise look. Wheat germ oil is very useful to anybody wanting to look good, feel good and live as long as they possibly can.
