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.

Purple Corn and Angina



Angina is often a silent killer. Usually you don’t know it’s about to strike until it’s too late. Experts define it as the lack of sufficient blood in the heart muscles, depriving the heart of oxygen. And there are three types–stable, unstable, and variant or Prinzmetal’s. The unstable type is what often strikes without warning and usually cannot be relieved with mere rest.

Taking purple corn supplements regularly–like purple corn juice–can help prevent angina. Because it is rich in lutein, it can help toughen blood vessels so they don’t easily rupture. The danger comes when angina strikes and causes pressure to build up in an artery and burst it, resulting to lethal internal bleeding. With the lutein in purple corn, however, ruptured blood vessels can be prevented because of the vascular health it provides.

But don’t wait till angina is about to strike before you start taking purple corn supplements. Start taking purple corn regularly now to offset any ailment that may hit in the future. Though purple corn is not something you may take like medicine or in lieu of it, this supplement may help in the prevention of ailments.

Taking purple corn supplements is not angina treatment, we would like to make clear here. Purple corn is merely a supplement–a help or aid in disease prevention and sometimes helping patients recover from sickness. At other times, according to personal testimonies, it works healing even if taken without other medicines. However, we maintain that supplements like purple corn are not stand-alone treatments. You need to see a medical doctor and follow his or her prescriptions.

Especially with deadly ailments like angina, you should always consult your doctor on what to do, even about your supplement intakes. Moreover, never take headaches lightly. If you have a headache, taking purple corn supplements may help alleviate it, but you need to take a rest and perhaps a safe drug for it. Severe headaches sometimes trigger angina that leads to a stroke. As one study published by Stroke.AhaJournals.Org said, “Severity of angina pectoris in patients with stable CHD predicts an increased risk of subsequent ischemic stroke.”

Purple Corn Anthocyanin and Hypertension

aneurysm-rupturePurple corn anthocyanin helps treat hypertension. About 20 to 30 percent of Filipinos are afflicted with hypertension. It’s worse in other countries like the US. It is often caused by atherosclerosis or the accumulation and clogging of fat or calcium deposits on the arterial walls, stifling the flow of blood. When the walls become too narrow, or worse, finally close, hypertensive stroke happens.

Bad cholesterol flowing in the blood is not really a problem. As long as they do not cling to the blood vessel walls, you’re safe. But they cling once the walls crack. The crack is due largely to free radical damage as a result of stress. When your body is under too much stress, some of your blood vessels crack up and bad cholesterol, fats, and calcium get stuck there, build up, and clog blood flow, leading to atherosclerosis.

Purple corn anthocyanin can help you remedy this. Together with lutein in purple corn, anthocyanin firms up blood vessels at the same time they make them flexible enough to cause vasodilation, or the safe expansion of blood vessels to allow smoother blood flow and decrease blood pressure. Thus, regular intake of purple corn supplements promotes blood vessel health and normalizes blood pressure, alleviating hypertension, if not eliminating it.

Other synthetic drugs for hypertension also effect vasodilation, but eventually, the drug affects the blood vessels negatively, making them brittle or fragile, easily cracking up, even rupturing later, which is dangerous. Purple corn has no such side effect.

When taking purple corn supplements for hypertension, continue taking your maintenance medicine as prescribed by your doctor. But make sure you get regular checkups. As your cardiovascular health improves, your doctor may decrease your maintenance dosage. Let him do that–never self medicate. As your blood pressure improves, your doctor may recommend decreasing your medication, until he tells you to stop it.

Finally, as already mentioned above, taking purple corn has no side effects whatsoever. You can take its supplement form with or without maintenance drugs. In juice or capsule form, this health supplement easily gets digested and absorbed by the body. Taking it in juice form for hypertension, we recommend 60 ml before meals. If in capsule form of 500 mg, take it 2 to 3 times a day, preferably before meals.
