In addition, wheat bran is rich in vitamins and minerals such as A, E and B, beta-carotene, pantothenic acid, sodium, iron, zinc, manganese, cobalt, iodine and copper.
All natural substances contained in wheat bran are directly involved in the work of the human body. They take an active part in the regulation of the activity of many systems and organs, the process of hematopoiesis, the production of hormones and the balancing of their quantity.
