Smidge® Wheat Germ Oil softgels

Smidge® Wheat Germ Oil capsules give you a pure and natural, real food source of vitamin E. Ounce for ounce, no other food provides more.*

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 — so you receive even more vitamin E goodness. And, it’s made in small batches.

Because our Wheat Germ Oil is a whole food vitamin, it contains its inherent cofactors, including a full spectrum of tocopherols. So it maintains its original alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-tocopherols.

This all means Smidge® Wheat Germ Oil is extremely bioavailable, easily absorbed and provides more nutrients than an isolated vitamin E tocopherol supplement — as most are synthetic, highly processed or derived from soy.*

Like all Smidge® products, our Wheat Germ Oil capsules are free of common allergens, so they’re kind to sensitive systems.

Just a single, potent serving Smidge® Wheat Germ Oil (3 softgels) provides your body with 1.5 mg of vitamin E — 10% of your daily value. Plus, you get additional beneficial nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids and phytosterols. It also has naturally occurring octacosanol, a nutrient that may help balance healthy blood pressure and boost exercise performance.*
 

Who takes Smidge® Wheat Germ oil?

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.

That’s why folks looking for a pure, real food source of vitamin E love our Wheat Germ Oil capsules.

Wheat Germ Oil is part of the Root Cause Protocol by Morley Robbins, which seeks to address "the root cause" of health issues by rebalancing magnesium, copper and iron in the body.*

This supplement is also compatible with ancestral diets and protocols like keto and GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome), as we source the oil from the embryo of the wheat plant, not the grain.* That’s why you can even take it on gluten-free diets.

What does Smidge® Wheat Germ Oil do?

If you’re looking for fat-soluble vitamins from quality, unadulterated sources, here’s a supplement to help your body soak up the most potent, real food vitamin E around.*

Wheat germ oil is a nutritional superstar with:

  • Full-spectrum vitamin E
  • Omega-3 fatty acids
  • Phytosterols (plant-based molecules related to cholesterol) and
  • Octacosanol (a fatty alcohol found in plant waxes)

Together, these nutrients support a remarkable range of body functions.

The vitamin E in Smidge® Wheat Germ Oil softgels:

  • Acts as an antioxidant to support cellular membrane function*
  • Supports the immune system*
  • Promotes vibrant skin*
  • Assists blood circulation and the flow of oxygen in the blood*
  • May support eye health*

The omega-3 fatty acids and phytosterols:

  • Promote heart health*
  • Support nervous system function*
  • Support healthy cholesterol levels*
  • Support cellular integrity*

The octacosanol:

  • Supports healthy blood pressure*
  • Strengthens exercise performance*
  • May help with skin issues*

Dosage

Always start with a smidge! Take three softgels at once per day, or as directed by a certified healthcare practitioner. (See “low and slow” note below.)

For a smaller dose, puncture the capsule and administer the oil.

This is not recommended for children under the age of 2.

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.* 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.

FAQ

Is this product free of common allergens?

Yep. Smidge® Wheat Germ Oil does not contain milk/casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, yeast, corn or soy.

It should be avoided if you have grain or wheat allergies, or celiac disease. Please note that this supplement does contain wheat.

Can people with grain allergies take Smidge® Wheat Germ Oil capsules?

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.*

Can I take this product on a gluten-free diet?

You can take Smidge® Wheat Germ Oil while on a gluten-free diet, as it’s sourced from the embryo of the wheat plant and not the grain.* This product is also compatible with ancestral diets and protocols like keto and GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome).* 

Why is Wheat Germ Oil not Paleo?

Strictly speaking, the Paleo diet excludes all grains, including wheat. Wheat Germ Oil is a naturally occurring vitamin E supplement for those looking to get their vitamins from real foods. And it doesn’t contain any grains. 

Is wheat a Non-GMO food?

Yes. The good news is that all wheat in the United States, and any other country, is non-GMO! While many corn and bean crops are genetically modified, wheat is not.*

Why not get my vitamin E by eating leafy greens, nuts and seeds?

That’s one way to do it. But Smidge® Wheat Germ Oil is more efficient. It far exceeds the vitamin E content of all other foods. (See next question.)* No preparation is required and it’s easy to consume at home or away.

How does wheat germ oil stack up nutritionally to other vitamin E rich foods?

One tablespoon of wheat germ oil provides 15.9 mg of vitamin E. The next best food source, sunflower seeds, provides only 7.4 mg per ounce, while peanut butter comes in at a mere 2.9 mg in every 2 tablespoons. Please note that the serving size of Smidge® Wheat Germ Oil is just 3 softgels, as a little goes a long way.

Where is Smidge® Wheat Germ Oil sourced and crafted?

The wheat in your oil is harvested in North America, and the final product is produced here, too! 

Tell me more about the other vitamin E supplements derived from soy.

Little known tidbit: most supplemental tocopherols are derived from soy, with the U.S. being the top crop producer. Soy is naturally high in gamma-tocopherol, so when alpha-tocopherol is required, as is typical for most multivitamins, manufacturers convert soy-derived gamma-tocopherol to alpha-tocopherol. This means that most alpha-tocopherol supplements are not natural, but at best, semi-synthetic. With the main advantage of synthetic vitamin E being low cost, its clinical use is desirable, partially because these forms are alien to the human body.* 

How do synthetic vitamin E supplements differ from Wheat Germ Oil?

There are two different types of vitamin E called isomers. Isomers are molecules with the same chemical formula but different chemical structures. The synthetic isomer of vitamin E is called Dl-alpha-tocopherol acetate, and it’s a byproduct of petrochemical-dependent manufacturing.* 

There are several issues with synthetic vitamins and synthetic vitamin E. To start, they’re less effective and bioavailable than the natural forms you can get from food.* Further, the synthetic form of vitamin E can cause health issues in other parts of the body.*  

The natural source of vitamin E is called D-alpha-tocopherol and is in wheat germ, seeds, nuts, spinach and many other whole foods. 

What is wheat germ?

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.

    High in oxalates

    I really like most of smidge's products. I take the oyster zinc capsules and I have taken a few of the probiotic stuff as well. They have really clean ingredients and no fillers, but I realized I cannot take this wheat germ oil because it might be the cause of my resurfacing symptoms (burning skin, fuzzy feeling in my mouth, fibromyalgia, scalp pain, joint pain, MCAS/histamine issues) Its high in oxalates. I originally got this because its a natural source of vitamin E and has been shown to prevent spontaneous abortion, and increase progesterone from studies before the 1960...but I have been dumping lots of oxalates through my skin and I think this is the cause. I personally think oxalates are a problem for everyone, its not just a sensitivity, its like shards of glass. If consumed in high enough amounts can be deadly. These days we consume more oxalates then ever because of certain "health foods". Please just be careful with oxalate consumption.

    Thank you for reaching out to us and for your honest review and we appreciate your trust in Smidge! It is always best to be mindful of your sensitivities and provide your body with its specific needs. Wheat Germ Oil, and other varieties of healthy foods, can contain high oxalates. While Vitamin E or Wheat Germ Oil does have amazing benefits to help with a variety of different things, it also is something some individuals should be mindful of, such as those with Wheat Allergies, etc. We appreciate you reaching out with your story today and we wish you well!
