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 Eyesight



If you have difficulties seeing, maybe purple corn is just what you need. I have heard a lot of testimonies about users getting rid of their glasses because taking purple corn supplements regularly has corrected their eye vision. And why is this so? It’s because this natural supplement is rich in lutein.

Actually, lutein has no direct effect on the eye itself. But many eye vision problems are due to clogged blood vessels to the eyes. Without enough blood circulating to your eyes, your vision is affected. There may be fat deposits blocking free blood flow to your eyes, causing your weak or blurred eyesight. Purple corn anthocyanin and lutein can greatly help here.

Lutein promotes good eyesight because it promotes blood vessel health. Anthocyanin can help flush out clogging in blood vessels while lutein give the vessels firmness and flexibility that prevent obstructed blood flow. Together, they can improve your eyesight. It remains to be seen though if purple corn has beneficial effects against eye cataracts.

Kids’ eyesight is also helped with regular intake of purple corn supplements. In fact, it is a better alternative for synthetic vitamins. If your child already needs eyeglasses to read at an early age, purple corn supplement intakes may help improve or even restore eyesight to normal. The same thing with adults who hope to get some improvements on their vision.

In Word War II, British pilots were said to have been given doses of natural anthocyanin to improve their natural night vision. They needed improved nocturnal eyesight during air strikes or operations done under cover of darkness. Purple corn is rich in anthocyanin!

So, if you have some difficulty reading or seeing, why not try taking purple corn supplements regularly? You enjoy the delicious refreshing taste at the same time that your poor eyesight is remedied. The good news is, it has no side effects.

The purple corn pigment is purple because of the antioxidant content dominant in it–called Anthocyanin by nutrition experts and plant scientists.

Actually, 80 percent of the anthocyanin is derived from the husk and cob of the corn and only 20 percent comes from the grain itself. But you don’t normally eat the husk and the cob–humans eat the grain. But the good news is, purple corn liquid or powder juice makers have processed the husk and the cob for us and turned them into easily prepared and drinkable juice.

“Healthier” GMO Blood Oranges with Anthocyanin?

Anthocyanin-bar-chart-2.11According to a news article on Zeenews.India.Com, some British scientists reportedly genetically “improved” simple oranges and changed them into a healthier kind of blood oranges. Such oranges, they insisted, could be mass produced and at cheaper cost.

“Blood” oranges are colored thus from pigments called “anthocyanins” which, according to some clinical tests, give powerful health benefits, like the anythocyanin found in purple corn. Among top benefits of this phyto-chemical is decreasing your risk of suffering a stroke, heart diseases, cancer, and diabetes, among others.

The pigmentation is found in crops and fruits with blue, purple, violet, or red colors and which are observed to develop well only in certain climates. In the case of purple corn, the best varieties come from the high mountains of Peru, particularly Machu Picchu.

Meanwhile, Norwich John Innes Centre researchers have pinpointed the gene causing the pigmentation and manipulated it to eliminate the need for anthocyanin to develop only in cold climates, said the Daily Telegraph. That gene has been applied into seeds into Valencia oranges and scientists hope to get the first results from this genetically modified plants by year’s end. This engineering of a cold-independent blood orange with higher anthocyanin cannot be done except through genetic engineering, said Professor Cathie Martin accordingly.

Well, the sad part here is the need to use the GMO process just to produce blood oranges with anthocyanin. The much better alternative–if we’re talking of getting the benefits of anthocyanin–is just to get organic and all-natural purple corn varieties from Peru which are said to have the highest amount of anthocyanin compared to other crops or fruits.

All purple corn farms in Peru are said to be organic, free from any chemicals, and most importantly, free from any genetic engineering. There has been an uproar against genetically modified (GMO) crops, particularly applied to corn, which certain sectors say is extremely harmful to human health. Even if these GMO crops are fed domestic animals, not humans, the meats and milk of these animals are consumed by humans in the long run.

Purple corn from Peru is the safest abundant source of anthocyanin to date. The richest corn part that has lots of anthocyanin are the corn husk and cob which experts say give 80 percent of the phyto-chemical, compared to only 20 percent given by the corn grain itself.

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.

Purple Corn Anti-Tumor Benefit


With the kind of food available in our modern world today, tumors seem to just suddenly pop up in people, sometimes even in healthy people. Tumors are often caused by carcinogenic elements in food, like chemicals applied on it, food cooked directly on fire, chemicals in meat, and the like. When bad or dying cells stick together, they become tumors. The good news here is about the purple corn anti-tumor benefit.

Purple corn has been proven in clinical studies to have cell-protecting contents called “anthocyanin” which is a powerful anti-cancer antioxidant. It is said to inhibit the growth of carcinogen triggered tumors in rodents and is believed by some health experts to produce the same effect in humans. In the Philippines, there have been lots of testimonies on how purple corn intake was able to thwart the development of tumors and arrest the activity of cancer cells in the body.

For cancers and tumors, we recommend taking half glass of purple corn juice 3 times a day. In worse cases, we recommend 1 glass 3 to 4 times a day, or more. Your body absorbs the right amount of anthocyanin as needed. Thus, cancer patients, needing more nutrition in the body, will take in more than usual. The key here is to take purple corn supplements while the patient is still able to take in food and drinks. Stage 4 patients often lose the ability to swallow anything because their bodies reject food or even liquids. Don’t let it come to this before applying purple corn supplements.

We also highly recommend taking sugar-free purple corn supplements, like those in capsule form, for a more effective treatment. Sugar feeds cancer cells, making the ailment worse. So, take in purple corn without any sweetener. You may also take sugar-free purple corn juice, but this often requires special orders.

Finally, the best is always preventive rather than curative measure. Before anything worse happens, start taking purple corn supplements today. Build up your immune defense system so that your body can have much better chances of fighting off diseases. Carcinogenic elements are around us all the time–pollution, chemicals, exposure to harmful radiation, and stress, to name a few–and we need natural health supplements to combat them on a regular basis.

Weight Loss Purple Corn

purple corn lose weight

Clinical tests have shown that purple corn, particularly the health action of its anthocyanin, can help in weight loss. The test was done with rodents who were given amounts of purple corn extracts. Purple corn “prevented these (blood glucose, insulin, and leptin) excesses from occurring,” in the rodents, normalizing their levels in the mentioned readings.

Thus, the conclusion was that purple corn can help influence fat storage regulation and prevent the accumulation or concentration of adipose tissue. Scientists believe that if it had that effect on mice, there’s a great possibility the same is true with humans.

Purple corn anthocyanin powerfully controls large amounts of lipids in the liver, as well as control high triglyceride levels. The Peruvian juice has the ability to check an enzyme complex experts call fatty acid synthase or FAS. FAS is responsible for catalyzing the synthesis of palmitic acid–a fatty acid where synthesized fat molecules are derived–coming from an excess in glucose. A decrease in palmitic acid decreases body fats. Such fat reduction results were seen in the liver and adipose tissues of rodents when the action of purple corn anthocyanin took place.

Hence, purple corn has fat storage regulation properties that make it a powerful supplement for weight loss. The more you take purple corn supplements the better for your weight loss goals. What more if you incorporate it with good diets and workouts? This slimming formula is a fast strategy for effective fitness. Excess fat your body does not need is automatically eliminated through the natural fat storage regulation of the body, with the aid of purple corn, along with diet and exercise.

But those who desire to add on a little weight and some flesh to change their too slim figure can also benefit from purple corn. Because it helps regulate body fat storage, it helps your body keep enough fat and weight ideal to your size. Purple corn does not make you skinny or obese. It helps you attain your ideal weight, size, and figure–with proper diet and exercise, of course.

It will be a lot more hard effort trying to get in shape with exercise and diet alone without supplementation like purple corn supplements. To make things work faster, just enjoy purple corn supplements regularly.
