Health Benefits of Corn

Corn on the cob has many health benefits that you might not be familiar with. First of all, it is part of the whole grain family, but is naturally gluten-free. This is perfect for anyone who can’t digest wheat but still wants to have grains in their diet.

Furthermore, whole grains are beneficial for lowering your risk of heart disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. It is an important part of a well-balanced diet. Corn is also great for your digestion because it contains insoluble fiber, which does not get broken down in your gastrointestinal tract.

Corn also contains important ingredients such as B Vitamins, Vitamin A, Potassium, and antioxidants. Vitamins and minerals are essential for supporting our body’s health. Antioxidants are good because they help lower inflammation in the body.
