Forget about prunes, wheat bran can help get things moving along! Its high fiber content not only aids in bowel regularity, it's also used as a cancer-fighting ingredient. Those with Type 2 diabetes may also benefit from wheat germ to help stabilize blood sugar. Wheat bran is a great source of B vitamins, which assist in the utilization of macronutrients (carbs, protein, fat). Add 1 Tbsp of wheat bran to your NutriBlast. If you are gluten-intolerant or have a wheat allergy, avoid wheat bran as you would any other gluten or wheat containing ingredient.

Selection Process

Wheat bran is sold as a powder in most health food stores. It cannot be stored like a regular wheat flour as it tends to go rancid easily. Keep in a tightly sealed container and store it in the refrigerator.
