The germ is the embryo from which the plant grows, it is the most vital part of the seed, the one that contains all the elements necessary to create a new plant and make it grow.

But its importance in the diet is mainly due to the presence of large amounts of VITAMIN E which is assimilated by the presence of magnesium. Magnesium plays a key role in the metabolism of fat, sugars and proteins; and is a coenzyme that activates some 350 enzymes. It regulates the balance of sodium, potassium and calcium and has a beneficial effect on the nervous system. It also helps regulate the body’s acid-alkaline balance.
