Vitamin E, omega 3 fatty acid, wheat germ oil Soft Gelatin Capsule

This combination enriched with Vitamin E, omega 3 fatty acid, wheat germ oil boosts the immune system and the cardiovascular system while exhibiting antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. It also helps in lowering the levels of certain triglycerides while raising the levels of good cholesterol. It promotes healthy, clear young skin and treatment of dermatitis and disappearance of scars. Thus, this combination aims at improving the overall function of the body.

Vitamin E:

Vitamin E is a fat soluble compound containing four tocopherols and four tocotrienols. Foods rich in vitamin E include vegetable oils (canola oil, olive oil), cereals, almonds, peanuts, meat, poultry, eggs, fruits, vegetables, and wheat germ oil. Due to its prominent antioxidant activity its mainly used for improving skin, heart and brain diseases. It also improves vision and related eye disorders. It exhibits its antioxidant function by protecting the body cells against the effects of free radicals - agents produced on exposure to pollution, ultraviolet rays, and other elements that damage cells, tissues and organs and cause ageing.

Mechanism of action: Free radicals, such as superoxide, hydroxyl ions and nitric oxide all contain an unpaired electron. These radicals can damage the cells causing oxidative damage that leads to cell death. Vitamin E, prevent this cell damage by binding to the free radical and neutralising its unpaired electron.

Omega 3 fatty acid:

Omega 3 fatty acids are a class of essential polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) consisting of a double bond three atoms away from the terminal methyl group in their chemical structure (hence the use of “3” in their name). The three main omega-3 fatty acids are alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)(found in plant oils), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)(both commonly found in fish oil that originally come from microalgae that is further consumed by phytoplankton, a source of diet for fish).
It plays a significant role in:
  • the normal metabolism and function of biomolecules such as carbohydrates, proteins and fats
  • help reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering the blood pressure in hypertension patients
  • improving the blood circulation,
  • increasing the breakdown of fibrin protein that is associated with blood clotting
  • reducing triglyceride levels in the body.
  • reducing inflammation and treatment of rheumatoid arthritis
  • neurodevelopment, cognition and in suppressing the progression of various neurodegenerative disorders
Mechanism of action:

Wheat germ oil:

Wheat germ oil is obtained by extraction from the germ of the wheat kernel, loaded with essential nutrients. It contains various types of unsaturated fatty acids such as linoleic acid (omega-6), palmitic acid, oleic acid, linolenic acid (omega-3) and is particularly high in octacosanol. It is important for:
  • cardiovascular functions
  • improving HDL cholesterol levels
  • regulating blood glucose levels
  • Preventing atherosclerosis.
It is rich in vitamin B that promotes tissue repair and the growth of new tissue. Wheat germ is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, vitamin E, vitamin K and choline with multiple health benefits:
  • Being a rich source of protein, wheat germ oil promotes growth and development
  • Antioxidants and unsaturated fatty acids delay the signs of aging that are caused due to extrinsic aging factors. Wheat germ oil revitalizes and moisturizes dull and dry skin.
  • Wheat germ oil contains magnesium, which is helpful in the maintenance of blood glucose levels in the body.
  • Reducing risk of cardiovascular diseases
  • Enhancing of immune system
  • Decreasing triglycerides and cholesterol levels
  • Reducing oxidative stress on the cells
  • Controlling inflammation and other inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis
  • Helpful in neurological diseases including Alzheimer’s
  • Improving eye disorders including cataracts, and diabetes and premenstrual syndrome
