Octacosanol is a concentrated nutrient derived from wheat germ.
Nutrition scientists were on the trail of octacosonal way back in the 1930's, when they discovered that oils extracted from wheat germ had the ability to improve endurance and stamina. Later experiments revealed that the oil also reduced oxygen stress and quickened reaction time.
Further analysis found that, in addition to vitamin E and essential fatty acids, wheat germ oil also contained several long-chain alcohol molecules. The performance-boosting effects of wheat germ oil were stimulated by these substances, one of which was octacosonal.
Later investigations have shown that these alcohols, among which octacosonal is highest in concentration, can have the following effects:
‰Û¢ Improve energy storage in the muscles
‰Û¢ Improve endurance and stamina
‰Û¢ Quicken reflexes
‰Û¢ Improve oxygen utilization
