Purple Corn and Arthritis



Arthritis is pain in the musculoskeletal system of the body particularly in the joints. Once you reach the age when this ailment often strikes badly, some experts say the suffering will be for life. But some take pain relievers to lessen their suffering but the unwelcome news here is that some pain relievers or killers have side effects. Purple corn supplements don’t.

In their testimonies, lots of regular purple corn users (like in the Philippines) report major relief from arthritis pains, some even “permanent” disappearance. Some fear that taking any corn supplement may make matters worse because any grain is thought to increase uric acid level in the body, aggravating the painful effects of arthritis.

But first of all, we must understand that grains like corn or even beans per se do not cause uric acid rise. Your fatty food intake does. If you are fond of eating pork and fatty innards like animal liver or gizzard and their fats, then you’re likely to have an increase in uric acid levels. Second, purple corn is no ordinary corn–it is rich in anthocyanin. Anthocyanin in an antioxidant that neutralizes acidity in the body, uric acid included.

Third, anthocyanin in purple corn is powerfully anti-inflammation. And the term arthritis being derived from two Greek words–arthron meaning “joints” and itis meaning “inflammation,” means purple corn anthocyanin is ideal for treating or alleviating pain caused by arthritis. Joint inflammation caused by defective sockets or ligaments can be neutralized with the help of regular purple corn supplement intake.

But purple corn is only a supplement. To treat arthritis, we need proper diet, exercise, and medication. We may even need proper medical diagnosis to determine what causes our arthritis. It may be caused by your genetic makeup, infection or allergies, physically demanding job, previous injuries, autoimmune disease, obesity, or perhaps food. There may be need for specialized drug treatment for your arthritis, and taking purple corn supplements alone isn’t enough.

But to be sure, taking purple corn supps can help. And make sure you have your doctor’s approval for it, though it has not side effects.

Purple Corn and Liver Cirrhosis



Liver cirrhosis is another deadly killer. It is caused by scar tissue in a badly battered liver. If you abuse your liver function, giving it hard work it is not designed to perform, you damage it severely leading to liver cirrhosis. Is this fatal? Well, it’s among leading causes of death.

What causes liver cirrhosis? First, if you’re fond of eating street food contaminated by the Hepatitis C virus, you’re likely to be candidate. You never know when someone infected with the disease dips his or her street food into the common sauce jar and contaminates it. Or, if you happen to eat in a restaurant where food handling is carelessly done. Or, the injection needle used on you had been used on a person who didn’t know he had Hepatitis C.

Second, if you have fatty liver. Fatty liver is caused by heavy drinking of liquor, especially if this is accompanied by eating of fatty finger food. Most drinkers like drinking with fatty snacks. If they do this often (sometimes even on a nightly basis) liver cirrhosis is likely to set in. And because this disease seldom shows symptoms, it would be too late when they discover the ailment in them.

Third, if you are an alcohol abuser which leads to fatty liver, as already explained.

With the liver malfunctioning, nothing will filter out the toxins and poisons from the food you eat and the toxins produced during digestion. Your blood is likely to be poisoned and along with that, some episodes of high blood pressure and heart  disease perhaps.

Here’s how purple corn supplements can help you.

First, this Peruvian health drink may help you prevent fatty liver.  Purple corn anthocyanin is a good body fat regulator and helps wash out or burn excess fats. Second, it helps detoxify the body of toxins and chemicals induced during digestion. Third, anthocyanin helps invigorate cells in the body that may stabilize body organ health.

But purple corn supplement intake is NEVER a license for you to abuse your liver function. Some people go on abusing their liver because anyway they have purple corn to neutralize the side effects of abuse. Any supplement abused this way will never be effective in the long run. And, liver cirrhosis should be treated with medical science by a medical doctor. So, consult your purple corn supplement intake with your doctor.
