There are many sources of fiber that I have posted over the years such as Chia Seeds and Flax Seeds just to name a few; however, there is one in particular that seems to be resurfacing and gaining popularity. This potent source of fiber and also dense in nutrients is none other than Wheat Germ. It’s extremely economical, readily available and so easy to use and incorporate in our daily diets, no matter what your lifestyle. Take a look at this short video to see the amazing health benefits of Wheat Germ.

- Increases Athletic Performance
- Boosts Immune System
- Prevents Cancer
- Prevents Diabetes
- Improves Heart Health
- Anti-Aging Properties
- Improves Cellular Metabolism
Research states that for every 1,000 calories of food we eat, we need 14 grams of fiber, according to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Each tablespoon of wheat germ contains about 2 grams of fiber. You should start slow at a tablespoon per day. I recently started including it in my smoothie, salads, pasta and other savory meals. I barely taste it if at all. This fiber combined with your daily intake of fruits and veggies will surely be a health booster. It is a great detox for the intestinal system.
I hope you’ll give this natural and easy to use little fiber a try!!!
