Our Smidge Wheat Germ Oil capsules give you a pure and natural, real food source of vitamin E.
We extract our premium oil from the germ (the embryo of the seed). And we source it from fresh, high-quality, non-GMO North American wheat. Our gentle, low-heat method preserves maximum nutrients and is made in small batches.
Wheat germ is the embryo of the wheat plant, and it contains the highest amount of nutrients in the wheat kernel. This embryo eventually nourishes the new wheat plant, which is why it has so many vitamins and minerals.
Adults: Take three softgels at once per day with food, or as directed by a certified healthcare practitioner.
Children: Take 1 softgel daily, with food.
This supplement is not recommended for children under the age of 2.
This supplement is safe to take while Pregnant/Breastfeeding. Please be sure to reach out to your Certified Healthcare Professional about using supplements and their dosage while Pregnant or nursing.
How to take: Smidge Wheat Germ Oil is best taken with food. You can take this at any time of day, with a meal. Take the full recommended dosage at one time.
Warning: People taking blood-thinning drugs should avoid taking large doses of vitamin E. And, because Smidge Wheat Germ Oil is minimally processed to preserve the natural nutrients, the oil may contain trace amounts of gluten and should be avoided by those with celiac disease and severe wheat allergies. This product contains wheat.
Start low and slow: Smidge supplements are premium, pure and potent. Therefore, it's critically important to start slowly, with a lower dosage than recommended. For example, a very small dose every other day, or even once a week, until you can determine how the supplement affects your body and what dosage feels right for you.
