Purple Corn and Skin Health



When skin health is mentioned, health experts usually mean the anti-aging effects of a nutrient, like lutein. Lutein is known as a powerful anti-aging catalyst and particularly how it promotes skin health. Medical News Today says lutein specifically helps improve the skin’s elasticity and hydration. Its antioxidant activity can powerful aid in the prevention of skin oxidative damage. Oxidative damage happens when stress and wear and tear begin to take toll on the skin.

Moreover, lutein also aids in protecting oils, lipids, and fats found in the human skin, specifically protecting it from peroxidation. The most common way of supplementing on lutein is taking natural food supplements like purple corn supplements, though lutein can also be applied as an ointment or cream on the skin topically. Many experts maintain that lutein protects the skin from the sun’s UV rays as well as from pollutants found in water and in the air.

Purple corn is rich in natural lutein, making it a good supplement for maintaining skin health and rejuvenation. Particularly, it is good for the prevention of skin wrinkles and dryness which are two of the most decisive factors why people look older or younger than they should. Once wrinkles and dryness set in, the skin begins to lose its luster, smoothness, and youthful look.

Wrinkles and dryness are often the result of too much exposure to the sun, heat, or pollutants that damage skin quality. However, lack of enough healthy amount of sunlight can also sometimes result to dryness and wrinkles. Thus, to balance between the two–lack of and too much sunlight–taking natural supplements like purple corn supplements is highly recommended. Purple corn in Peru is often grown on mountains from 10,000 to 15,000 feet above sea level, exposed to both extremes of too cold a weather condition or too hot. Anthocyanin in the corn, however, protects it from such extreme weather conditions. And the corn supplements can do the same to your skin.

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.
