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 in other urinary disorders like nephritis (inflammation of the kidneys), cystitis (urinary tract infection), and prostatitis (swelling and inflammation of the prostate gland).
