Octacosanol

Octacosanol is a 28-carbon long chain saturated primary alcohol. It is extracted from a variety of plant sources including sugar cane, yams, and wheat germ oil. Octacosanol is a constituent of the vegetable waxes; such as on the green blades of wheat germ. It belongs to the fatty alcohol family.

Octacosanol is better absorbed on a full stomach. It is absorbed from the small intestines into the lymph and from there enters the bloodstream. Octacosanol mainly goes to the liver, digestive tract, skeletal muscle, and adipose tissue.

There is some discussion that octacosanol may have cholesterol-lowering effects but research still needs to be done to confirm this idea. Octacosanol has been used for exercise performance including strength, stamina, and reaction time. It has also been used for inflammatory skin diseases and hyperlipidemia. There interest in using octacosanol for various central nervous disorders as it is naturally present there.
