Maiz Morado - this special variety of corn with dark purple to black ears, grown in the Andes, was known before the Inca civilization, and Maiz Morado can be found depicted on various ceramic objects of the Mochica culture from more than 2500 years ago.
In general, doctors and researchers are enthusiastic about the results of laboratory research because they have found a rare treasure in the Maiz Morado - the "key to health". Maiz Morado products, known for centuries only "locally", are now gaining a reputation and an exceptional position around the world. What civilizations intuitively knew before the Inca Empire was confirmed today by scientific research. What makes Maiz Morado so irreplaceable in today's state-of-the-art preparations?
Maiz Morado is more than a "standard" complex of vitamins (A, B1, B2, B3, C) and minerals (iron, calcium, phosphorus). Maiz Morado is a source of the most powerful natural antioxidants that protect cell membranes and DNA from the malignant activity of free radicals and the genetic code of DNA from damage. Protecting cells and organs not only from premature aging but also from the development of many diseases, especially civilizations, such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity. It should also be mentioned that dyes (anthocyanins), which belong to the flavonoids that give vegetables and fruits a dark color (red, purple, or blue), have antitumor effects and dyes from purple corn outperform many others in this respect. According to research conducted in the USA, the anthocyanins contained in this variety of corn are some of the best in the world and are excellent prevention, especially against cancer of the stomach and colon.
Maiz Morado regulates blood circulation and pressure, protects the vascular system from damage, improves blood microcirculation, reduces cholesterol and reduces the risk of heart attack, nourishes brain cells and supports its proper functioning. and viral infections and fungi.
A study conducted at the Medical Faculty of the University of Nagoya (Japan, Prof. T. Shirai Shirai) showed that the substances contained prevented the development of colon cancer. According to Dr. Hugo Malaspina from Lima (Peru), purple corn supports tissue regeneration, prevents the development of cardiovascular diseases, slows down degenerative processes in general, increases blood flow, and counteracts the formation of wrinkles. Recent clinical studies in Japan, published in the journal Biophysical Research Communications, have shown that purple corn (Zea mays L.) can become a major ally in the fight against diabetes and obesity. In 2008, a research team from Japan's Doshisha University in Kyoto discovered that purple corn extract increased the activity of a gene that regulates fat cell function. Obesity and diabetes are major disadvantages of this century, and the properties of purple corn give us new hope in prevention. According to a study published in the journal Nutraceuticals World, purple corn extract, as one of the strongest antioxidants, is a good cholesterol inhibitor, protects the retina and stimulates blood circulation. The mere enumeration of basic information about Maiz Morado justifies the need for its inclusion in the daily diet, to ensure the protection and strengthening of the organism. Maiz Morado, so important in prevention, is invaluable even for pre-existing diseases, for all inflammations and infections - as purposeful support of classical treatment.
