Purple Corn Found to Have Zero Toxicity in a PubMed Report

An interesting development was seen in a study on the subchronic toxicity of purple corn (particularly its extract for coloring). The term “sub chronic” means the bad effects after subjecting lab animals repeatedly to certain chemicals. In this case, the lab animals (rodents) were subjected to repeated feeding of the purple corn extract to see if it has any toxic effect.

The result was zero. To be exact, this was how the PubMed article put it: “No mortalities occurred during the treatment period.”

The rats were fed the purple corn extracts for 90 days at various levels–from 0% to 1.5% to 5.0%. There were no changes noted in the body weight of the rats that were treatment related, as well as their appetite, eye capacity, blood, weight of the body organs, and histopathology.

However, staining on the rats’ fur were noted and black feces were seen from the groups that received the 1.5% and 5.0% extracts. The rats that got the 5% were particularly noted to have brown urine and black material was seen in their stomachs and small and large intestines. But these changes, according to the study were only due to the anthocyanin content of purple corn.

On the rats’ blood chem, cholesterol, triglyceride, and phospholipid levels were noted to have lowered significantly in both male and female rats in the 5% group. According to the article, such results were toxicologically insignificant. In the end, the study said the no-observed-adverse-effect-level was seen to be 5.0% in the diet for the make and female subjects for purple corn color extract considering the present conditions in the test.

This indeed is good news for purple corn businesses and for those who want to try this super food but are wondering about its toxicity. Some food crops and herbs that are observed to have powerful health effects are sometimes also found to have some toxicity level. Some fish, for instance, which are allegedly good for health, have been found to have high lead and other harmful metal contents.

The lab test on purple corn described above were done with rodents, but many experts believe that results from tests done with rats are just a few steps away from being somewhat similar with the results of tests done with humans. Of course, it remains to be seen how the extracts would affect human subjects. But at least, with these test results on rats, we have an idea.

Sub-Lingual Purple Corn Juice and Water Therapy

Immediately before this issue, we shared about purple corn juice sub-lingual intake on this blog. Now, we like to show you how sub-lingual intake goes perfectly hand in hand with water therapy for getting good health, and especially during an ailment.

Water Therapy

Water therapy is a good habit to develop early each morning. The idea is to drink 3 full glasses of water on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. Better if you use alkaline water. After 30 minutes, you then take your sub-lingual purple corn juice. This method produces an action that helps:

1. In detoxification. Water therapy early in the morning helps your body eliminate toxins from its system. Early morning is when your body does its detox work. Water therapy will enhance this function to ease elimination through the bowels and urine.

2. Purple corn juice taken sublingually is easily absorbed in the body and helps the natural detoxification of the body systems when done early in the morning. The lymphatic system is especially helped, since it deals greatly with detoxification.

3. The purple corn juice you swallow [after your 2-minute sublingual intake] is immediately absorbed by the digestive system since water therapy detox has already been started. After washing out your system clean, the purple corn juice you swallowed can more easily do its work of promoting good health.

Purple Corn Juice

After water therapy has cleared the path, your purple corn juice can easily be put to work. Sublingually, it has bypassed the digestive system and a good amount has already gone directly to your body systems. But not all the purple corn juice in your mouth can be taken sublingually. What remains should be swallowed by your mouth. Anyway, what is swallowed won’t be too hindered by the digestive system since in it has been cleared by water. So, in a sense, purple corn juice is also absorbed well during digestion when done 30 minutes after water therapy early in the morning.

If you have an ailment to treat or if you want improved health, sublingual purple corn juice and water therapy is a powerful recommendation for you. How early is early in the morning? We recommend 5 or 6 am. If done daily, this routine has been observed to powerfully improve health conditions.
