Purple Corn: Anti-Stress
Oxidative stress starts oxidation, or the "rusting" of the body, thus the term oxidative. This can lead to neurotoxicity, increasing neuronal membrane malfunction. But anthocyanin can reverse all these stress-induced negative effects. By eating fruits rich in anthocyanin, many health experts believe such stress can be thwarted. And the most powerful anthocyanin-containing natural food is purple corn. Berries only come in second.
It used to be that blueberries were the most powerful food on earth. They contain 7.2 ml of anthocyanin per gram. But experts have recently found out that purple corn has 16.4 ml of it per gram.
People with distressing jobs and lifestyles ought to have a lifestyle change. The more they should have regular physical workouts and eat healthy food, particularly fruits. And here, purple corn is the best. Purple corn is now available in liquid (juice) form.
