Purple Corn Study
A study by Tsuda et al in 2003 revealed the effects of purple corn on obesity and diabetes. Two groups consumed a diet rich in fats for 12 weeks, but one of the groups also received purple corn pigments. The group consuming the purple corn:
- Didn’t gain any weight
- Didn’t suffer hypertrophy in the adiposities of the fat tissues
- Didn’t show hyperglycemia (low blood sugar), hyperinsulinemia (too much insulin in the blood, which is the beginning of diabetes), or hyperleptinemia (increased serum leptin levels, which is another marker for diabetes).
In comparison, the group that didn’t receive the extract and ate only a fat rich diet, showed an increase in all of those areas, thus showing the incredible benefits for fighting obesity and diabetes.
A Japanese study at Nagoya University showed that the pigment in purple corn impedes the development of cancer in the colon.
A sample group received food mixed with a natural carcinogenic substance which is found in the charred parts of roasted meat and fish, and another group also received 5% pigment of purple corn. In the group that was fed the cancer causing substance, 85% developed colon cancer, compared with only 40% that also received the pigment.
As colon cancer is one of the most deadly forms of cancer, adding some purple corn to the diet is a pretty good idea!
There are also some people who claim that purple corn can help us open our third eye chakra, since its color is purple. The third eye chakra is responsible for increased intuition, and opening up to spiritual truths.
