Wheat Germ Supplementation and Markers of Gut Health

common.study.values.description

Wheat Germ Supplementation Will Improve Markers of Gut Health, Inflammation, and Insulin Resistance in Overweight Adults

The objective of this pilot study is to determine the effects of wheat germ (WG) supplementation on gut health and subsequent effects on markers of inflammation and insulin resistance in overweight individuals. WG is a by-product of wheat processing and an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E, and fiber. A few studies have shown the health benefits of WG including gut modulatory potential, but the prebiotic functions of WG in humans remain in question and warrant further investigation.
