The silky strands on corn aka corn silk have many medicinal properties.Corn silk from from one ear of corn is washed well and boiled in one and half cups of water for around 5-8 minutes.The tea is filtered and may be sweetened .Drinking this tea is extremely beneficial for people suffering from urinary problems.
Dosage: Once a day for 8 days.
Fresh corn silk is recommended.
It is a common sight to see fresh corn silk being sold along with ears of corn here in Ho Chi Minh city and I think it is smart to utilize nature's bounty and streamline one's health as well.
( people who are allergic to corn and pregnant ladies may refrain from drinking this )
