It is a product which has been despised for a long time ever since it's discovery. Actually, very few people have ever taken any thought about it.
We usually see is but no thought crosses our minds about the benefits such a product can have in Our lives. The little we think of when we see it is food. To be precise, we think of fertilization and how maize production will be high during harvest season.
I am talking about Corn Silk, commonly referred to as Silk Hairs or corn hairs.
What do you think of when you see the product at your garden? Maize production. Right?
I want to give you another thought for the product.
Research has it that silk Hairs are medicinal and can treat various ailments. The health benefits of these Hairs are quite many which include treatment of kidney stones, bed wetting, urinary system, diabetes, high blood pressure, fatigue, high cholesterol, heart failure among many more others.
All this information can be found on the link below.
As screen shots, the ailments treated by corn silk as shown.
I know many are wondering how the corn silk works as a curative element.
Research has it that the silk contains proteins, carbohydrates,vitamins, minerals and fibre. It also contains chemicals which may act as water pills (diuretic) and it may alter blood sugar levels, and help reduce inflamation.
After knowing how it works, what is the appropriate dosage?
There is no researched literature as to the appropriate dosage of corn silk. The quantity consumed depends on several factors which depend on age of the individual, health and other factors.
The product is prepared by boiling the silk in some water. It is then consumed by taking a glass either once or twice per day. But as earlier stated, dosage depends on age and health of the individual taking.
It however should be noted that large consumption of Corn Silk lowers blood pressure. Likewise, taking corn silk alongside medication made for high blood pressure will lower blood pressure.
