High standardisation guarantees the desired therapeutic effects even with two capsules a day. It is best to divide them into two doses and take them after a meal several hours apart.
The preparation should be particularly interesting for people with an increased risk of developing cardiovascular system diseases. It will prove effective even in those who lack the strong will and persistence needed to introduce changes to their diet and lifestyle in order to reduce the risk of falling ill.
Numerous studies have demonstrated that including purple corn extracts in supplementation helps to enhance metabolism, reduce too high arterial blood pressure, and normalise lipid parameters.
Purple corn extract, also called blue corn extract, has been known and used for thousand years in Peruvian Andes to which it is native. It has a similar taste to the commonly known yellow corn, but it has much more nutritional value and health benefits.
Because of its purple colour derived from the content of anthocyanins, it is a good source of antioxidants, namely compounds which remove excess free radicals from the body. Studies have shown that corn contains C3G (cyanidin 3-O-glucoside), one of the strongest antioxidants which may prevent obesity and diabetes. It has been demonstrated that it may help reduce inflammation and total cholesterol levels in the body.
According to scientists, other potential effects of enriching a diet with kernels of this plant are a decrease in blood pressure and pulse rate. Furthermore, its antioxidant properties can prevent hardening of the glomeruli in the kidney (glomerulosclerosis).
Apart from C3G, purple corn contains also other antioxidants, such as lutein and zeaxanthin. Their presence reduces the risk of eye diseases, e.g. cataracta.
Anthocyanins are a group of vegetable dyes belonging to the flavonoids, taking the colour depending on the pH of the cell sap from red to purple. A rich source of anthocyanins are aronia berries, blueberries, raspberries and cranberries. They are powerful antioxidants catching oxygen free radicals. They have important health benefits due to the anti-inflammatory properties (e.g. Cranberries prevent urinary tract infections), strengthen the immunity of the body (e.g. eyesight), prevent sticking together of platelets (so called aggregation), destroy cancer cells. Used in the prevention of the heart and circulatory system diseases (e.g. Chokeberry lowers blood pressure, slows the deposition of atherosclerotic plaques, lowers LDL cholesterol). Dyes are colouring additives, absorbing light and resistant to changes in temperature, for food products and supplements. Due to the ease of oxidation, products containing anthocyanins must be stored in containers that hinder the access of oxygen and at low temperatures. In supplementation, except of fresh fruits, dried fruits are used, in the form of infusions.
