Medical researchers have long known that stress and injury can alter cell metabolism and weaken immune system regulation, leading to serious health complications. Nobel Prize laureate, Dr. Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, published research in the 1980s showing that compounds found in very minute quantities in wheat germ could help restore healthy cell metabolic function. Dr. Szent-Gyorgyi was the amazing and brilliant scientist who discovered vitamin C!
FWGE was created when a process of concentrating and standardizing the beneficial compounds in wheat germ by fermentation with baker’s yeast was developed. Since its creation, there have been more than 40 articles published in peer-reviewed medical and research journals showing the safety and efficacy of FWGE in a broad range of health challenges: fwgeresearch.org
American BioSciences started driving research, development and distribution of FWGE products in 2005. Since then, tens of thousands of people have enjoyed its health benefits. In 2009 the company initiated a research collaboration with a leading NCI-designated academic research center to identify the individual molecules in FWGE that account for its biological activity, and nd the “bioactive fraction”. This research collaboration determined:
- In its natural form FWGE consists of thousands of molecules, but 100% of the biological activity and health bene ts are provided by less than 100 molecules which compose the “bioactive fraction.”
- Non-active molecules dilute FWGE bioactives and they include gluten and gliadin which may contribute to unwanted side effects.
American BioSciences developed a patent pending combination of technologies used in food processing to concentrate the “bioactive fraction,” referred to as FWGE-SCTM (Fermented Wheat Germ Extract – Super Concentrate). Non-active molecules, including gluten, are excluded. Studies show that 41 mg of FWGE-SC has the same biological effect as 5,500 mg of pure FWGE. Metatrol is shown to support healthy cell metabolism in abnormal cells, exhibiting non-oxidative glucose metabolism; increasing Oxygen Consumption Rate (OCR) and reducing production of lactic acid (ECAR). In animals implanted with abnormal cells, Metatrol PRO, at a dose comparable to 41 mg of FWGE-SC per day for a person, controlled cell growth as well as 5,500 mg/day of FWGE. Also, studies of gene expression showed that genes associated with abnormal cells were down regulated and genes associated with healthy cell function were up regulated.
