Corn Silk, Organic 1oz
Corn silk (Zea mays)
Corn silk acts as a demulcent for the urinary tract. It is a beneficial addition to tea formulas for the treatment of urinary tract infections. It soothes the urinary tract, and reduces inflammation and irritation of the bladder. Long-term use of corn silk also helps to strengthen the tone of the base of the urinary bladder. This action can be helpful for any individual with urinary incontinence and bladder weakness, including the elderly, menopausal women, children, postpartum women, and men with prostatitis. It is also a beneficial long-term tonic for individuals who suffer from regular urinary tract infections.
