Yaroslav: The action of wheat germination experienced. On the recommendation of the yogis, every morning she used a gruel of germinated grains over the course of two weeks. As a result, the frequency of allergies has decreased, overall health has improved, nails and hair have become stronger. It is very good to use it at the end of winter, when the body is deficient in vitamins. It is not always possible to germinate cereal; it can be replaced with a ready-made extract from a pharmacy.

I do not know if this is a coincidence, or suggestion - I began to sleep soundly, look great, feel great not only in the mornings when I wake up, but during the whole day.

Marina: Long suffered from the manifestation of seasonal heilit. At the slightest hypothermia in the corners on the lips cracks appeared - very painful. Creams with which I tried to relieve pain and cure the problem helped, but short-term. I read an article about wheat germ oil, I decided to try it. The effect is stunning, highlit has passed, the skin has become soft. I use it to this day and do not regret it.

Nastya: I have a slightly different problem - dry scalp and hair. How many shampoos I have already tried - the effect is zero. I tried, for the sake of interest (that I can lose - it still does not help anything), diluted with olive oil, as stated in the article. The feeling of tightness of the skin is gone, no dandruff, the hair has become silky, healthy and shiny, just like that just from the salon.

This remedy has a beneficial effect on the entire body.
