Metabiome™ Postbiotic

MetaBiome™ is a Fermented Wheat Germ Extract (FWGE) - a metabiotic extract of wheat germ obtained by fermenting the germ of the wheat plant.

Metabiome nutritional components

MetaBiome™ is different than the ordinary wheat germ, for that its fermentation is done by baker's yeast, then cold water extracted, to achieve the concentration of the biologically active benzoquinones.

Carbs are the main nutritional ingredient of MetaBiome™. It contains significant amounts of fibre, aiding digestion. Thanks to the unique biotechnological process, the gluten is completely broken down. MetaBiome™ is a great source of many essential vitamins and minerals, including selenium, manganese, phosphorus, copper, and folate.

MetaBiome™ contains many healthy antioxidants, such as alkylresorcinols and lignans.


Wheat germ is subjected to fermentation to yield the important benzoquinones: 2,6 dimethoxy-benzoquinone (DMBQ) and 2-methoxy-benzoquinone (MBQ). These benzoquinones are present in unfermented wheat germ as glycosides. The resulting metabiotic contains a wide variety of biologically active substances a direct result of a precise fermentation process.

The glycosidase activity leads to the release of the benzoquinones as aglycones. Following fermentation, the aqueous extract of wheat germ is decanted, and the product is naturally dried, homogenised, encapsulated, and formulated.

The dried fermented wheat germ extract is standardized to the methoxy-substituted benzoquinones, DMBQ and MBQ, at a concentration of 0.04%.

Health Benefits

MetaBiome™ metabiotic is suitable for all ages and genders and it comes with a lot of health benefits. It helps boost the immunity, to fight cancer, hence reducing your chances of being exposed to it, or spreading on healthy tissues in case you are already affected by it. It also helps reduce radiation risks when exposed to, by supplementing your diet.

Promotes Regularity

Supplementing MetaBiome™ is an excellent way to bump up your intake of dietary fibre and stay regular. When you eat fibre, it moves through your body undigested and adds bulk to the stool, to help ease its passage and prevent straining and constipation.

High in Antioxidants

MetaBiome™ is rich in vitamin E, which acts as an antioxidant. Antioxidants are compounds that help protect the body from free radicals, which are harmful substances that cause damage to cells and can build up and lead to chronic diseases over time.

Stabilizes Blood Sugar

MetaBiome™ can also benefit your blood sugar levels. Fibre slows down the absorption of sugar in the bloodstream and helps regulate blood sugar levels while preventing any spikes and crashes. Using it to kick up your fibre intake may be beneficial to your blood sugar levels.

Boost Immune System

Thanks to its excellent nutrient profile, MetaBiome™ can increase the production of anti-inflammatory chemical messengers called cytokines that reduce inflammation helping the immune system function more effectively.
