Health benefits of White Corn

White Corn provides numerous health benefits due to the presence of quality nutrients within. Besides being a delicious addition to any meal, it is rich in phytochemicals and offers protection against a number of long-lasting diseases. The well-researched and widespread health benefits of white corn are listed below.

1. Anemia Prevention

This is another one of those illnesses for women that are spreading more than ever. Anemia happens due to the profound deficiency of vitamins and minerals such as iron in your body. Body requires iron and folate to form new red blood cells. White Corn is a very good source of iron, per 166 grams of serving it provides an impressive 4.5 mg of iron.

2.Prevents Hemorrhoids

White corn consists of good amount of fiber content that helps in alleviating digestive problems such as constipation and hemorrhoids, as well as lowering the risk of colon cancer due to corn being a whole-grain.

Fiber has long been encouraged as a way to reduce colon risk, but insufficient and conflicting data exist for fiber’s relationship with preventing cancer, although whole-grain consumption has been proven to reduce that risk. Fiber helps bulk up bowel movements, which stimulates peristaltic motion and the production of gastric juice and bile. It can also add bulk to overly loose stools, which can reduce the chances of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and diarrhea. (1), (2)

3. Promotes Growth

White Corn is rich in vitamin B constituents, particularly thiamin and niacin. Thiamin is vital for maintaining nerve health and cognitive function. Niacin shortage leads to pellagra; a disease characterized by diarrhea, dementia, and dermatitis that is commonly observed in malnourished individuals. It is also a good source of pantothenic acid, which is an essential vitamin for carbohydrate, protein, and lipid metabolism in the body.

Deficiency of folic acid in pregnant women can lead to the birth of underweight infants and may also result in neural tube defects in newborns. White corn provides a large percentage of the daily folate requirement, thus preventing this condition. Kernels of corn are rich in vitamin E, a natural antioxidant that is essential for growth and protection of the body from illness and diseases. (3)

4. Weight Loss

Losing weight can be quite tough job. However, to lose weight consuming the right kind of nutrient rich foods is essential. White corn is the best snack for this, it is a wonderful source of energy and will also leave you feeling full for longer due to its fiber content. Popped corn without any salt, cooked with a tablespoon of coconut oil is the way to go.

5. Prevents Hypertension

White Corn consists of phenolic phytochemicals that help regulate blood pressure and prevent hypertension. There is also a good amount of vitamin B that is beneficial for the optimal functionality of your adrenal glands.

6. Lowers LDL Cholesterol

According to the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry, consumption of corn husk oil helps to lowers plasma LDL or bad cholesterol by decreasing cholesterol absorption in the body.  As mentioned earlier, this reduction in LDL cholesterol does not mean a reduction in HDL or good cholesterol, which can have beneficial effects on the body. They include the reduction of heart diseases, prevention of atherosclerosis, and a general searching of free radicals throughout the body.(4), (5)

7. May Prevent Alzheimer

It has been researched as a source of thymine, which is an antioxidant that sharpens brain functions. It also helps synthesize acetycholine, which in turn leads to an improved memory.

These diseases are often quite painful and lead to a lot of discomfort and suffering. Although researches are still being conducted on this subject, there has been an observation made on about 47,228 men that shows the benefits of consuming popcorn to prevent the symptoms of this disease from developing.
