Is Corn Silk Good for Glycaemic Metabolism?

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”35134″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]In the previous article about glucose metabolism, we also touched the aspect of food. Therefore we can expand the topic a bit more by addressing one particular food: corn silk and its impact on glycaemic metabolism.

What is corn silk?

It is somewhat comfortable for anyone to spot corn silk when they look at the corn. These are the long, shiny fivers that are at the top of corn’s head. It is used in medicine in various aspects:

  • Inflammation of the urinary system
  • Bladder infections
  • Bedwetting
  • Kidney stones
  • Prostate
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Fatigue
  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure[1]

There is no doubt that corn silk is exquisite as it “contains proteins, vitamins, carbohydrates, Ca, K, Mg and Na salts, fixed and volatile oils, steroids such as sitosterol and stigmasterol, alkaloids, saponins, tannins, and flavonoids.”[2]

A study done in 2009 assessed corn silk effects on hepatic glycogen, blood glucose, insulin secretion, glycohemoglobin (HbA1c), gluconeogenesis and damaged pancreatic β-cells. The use of corn silk on mice showed that blood glucose decreased significantly. A partial recovery occurred for the alloxan-damaged pancreatic β-cells within 15 days. Corn silk increased hepatic glycogen but there was no significant difference between mice, who were induced with alloxan and others with adrenalin. However, the results showed that corn silk extract reduced hyperglycemia in mice with alloxan. It acts on glycaemic metabolism through increasing insulin level and recovering the injured β-cells. As you can see, the research overall proves that it is possible to use corn silk extract as medicine or hypoglycemic food for people who have hyperglycemic problems: it markedly reduced hyperglycemia in diabetic mice induced with alloxan.

Corn silk supplement is one additional way how to use this beneficial natural part of a vegetable. Otherwise, one can buy it as an encapsulated herb or tincture. If you are a teal lover, corn silk tea is a very good idea for weight loss and other health issues. It also helps with diabetes, fatigue, high blood pressure, congestive heart failure and even to treat gonorrhoea, jaundice, and malaria.1 This corn silk tea is also good for kidneys and as relief of pain from arthritis and other joint problems. There are no side effects, but still, every person should consult a healthcare practitioner, for example, a nutrition specialist to assess if there is a need for corn silk or some other supplements and other options for metabolism.
