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.
