Medical Issues Eating Corn Regularly Can Help Maintain Or Prevent

Corn, also called maize, is a cereal grain that is widely eaten because it tastes great and can be cooked in many different ways. But did you know that some people shouldn't eat too much maize and that it can help people with different health problems?

According to a Healthline article, this article talks about the health problems that maize may help with if you eat it often.

What medical problems can be helped by eating corn often?

1. Corn has two important compounds that help keep your eyes healthy: lutein and zeaxanthin. This shows that eating corn often may help treat or prevent some eye problems, such as cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. Since maize is good for your eyes, there's no reason to limit yourself if you have the chance to eat it often.

2. Corn also helps treat or prevent diverticular diseases and digestive problems because it has a lot of fiber. It has been shown that eating maize can help prevent a number of digestive problems, such as diarrhea and constipation. So, if you often have a higher chance of getting digestive problems, make sure to eat corn.
