Summer is in full swing, and sweet corn is popping everywhere here in the South. I know we are going to eat a lot of it, and just like past years, I am planning to keep the silk so I can make corn silk tea. I think you should do it too.
Here Is why…
Corn silk is high in potassium, therefore, has a diuretic effect on the urinary system. In other words, it promotes the production of urine. In other words, it makes you pee, a lot.
Corn silk will also help prevent kidney stones, and is useful with other urinary problems like nephritis (inflammation of the kidneys), cystitis (urinary tract infection), and prostatitis (swelling and inflammation of the prostate gland).
Corn silk is also known to reduce water retention in the body, and may be beneficial in treating high blood pressure and gouty arthritis (uric acid builds in the blood and causes inflammation in the joints).
Lastly, it may also be useful in eliminating bed-wetting in children.
So, all in all, it is very healthy.
How To Make Corn Silk Tea….
Five minutes after you drink it you’ll be visiting the potty. Then you’ll feel like you didn’t have a drink in two weeks so you’ll run to your kitchen and gulp down a big glass of water. You’ll be healthy and live happily ever after.
So… Did you every tried corn silk tea?
