 Purple Corn can Effectively Treat Diabetes

Korean researchers have found that purple corn can be effective in treating diabetes as it contains anthocyanins (PCA) or flavonoids that have anti-diabetic properties, a new study published in the American Journal of Physiology reveals.

The study was conducted by researchers at Department of Biochemistry at Hallym University who found that the spread of diabetic nephropathy can be stopped by the cellular and molecular activity of purple corn.
