Corn as Superfood

.
I know many of us like eating corn. I especially like to cook corn with glutinous rice, sugar and coconut milk. It's a great treat. Also we love corn chips a lot. We like steamed corn, grilled corn and we also like it in soups.

We need to eat healthy. We should be aware of the health benefits of the food we eat. So how healthy is corn?

Eye Care

Yellow corn is a rich source of beta-carotene which is needed to form Vitamin A. We all know Vitamin A is good for eye sight.

Lowers Bad Cholesterol

It reduce cholesterol absorption in the body throught consumption of corn husk oil. This is good for the heart to prevent atherosclerosis.

Anemia Prevention

Corn is a good source of iron. The essential mineral is good for the production of new red blood cells.

Cancer prevention

Phytochemicals are found in high volumes in corn. These phytochemicals are antioxidants that help in the prevention of cancer. It's also a source of ferulic acid a phenolic compound which is known as an anti-carcinogenic agent.

Prevents hemorrhoids, colon cancer and constipation.

Corn is rich in fiber. Corn is a whole grain so it is a good source of fiber. Fiber is important in the bulk of bowel movement.

Nerve Health and Cognitive Function

Corn is rich in Vitamin B like thiamin. Thiamin is good for our nerve health and cognitive function.
