10 surprising health benefits of Popcorn — Sex booster?
*** 10 reasons to eat popcorn daily
Corn is high in fiber, which helps with digestive regularity, keeps you feeling full throughout the day, is crucial for a healthy heart, and may even help to protect against colon cancer. Because of its high fiber content, eating popcorn may help to promote healthy gut bacteria — which are essential for not only digestion, but also for a healthy immune system.
Yellow corn is rich in carotenoid antioxidants, including lutein and zeaxanthin, which not only help to protect eye health, and may guard against age-related macular degeneration, but they also work to combat system-wide inflammation, which may underlie a number of chronic diseases.
Corn is rich in B-vitamins, including vitamin B3, B6, folate, and pantothenic acid. B-vitamins are essential to regulating bodily processes across multiple systems. Just two examples of these are the production of energy and the metabolism of various nutrients.
Vitamin B3, also known as niacin, has been studied for its potential to help naturally ease depression, making popcorn a “comfort food” in the literal sense.
Corn contains phosphorus, a mineral that aids in supporting healthy bone function, as well as the function of many types of cells throughout the body.
Manganese, another mineral found in corn, not only supports healthy bones, it also plays a part in regulating blood sugar, and is instrumental in promoting healthy skin.
Corn contains ferulic acid, which is linked to potentially killing certain kinds of tumor cells.
Munching on a bowl of organic popcorn provides a great alternative to other less-healthy snacks, and because it is high in fiber, may reduce cravings for these snacks, as well.
Organic corn is a wonderful gluten-free grain choice.
Adorning your popcorn with organic grass-fed butter, and unrefined sea salt also gives you the benefits of these two important foods.
It’s just plain delicious!
