BIT CORNY

Women's Health (UK) - - EAT SMART -

1 World look­ing a lit­tle blurry? There’s a lot to be said for chow­ing down on corn. It con­tains zeax­an­thin and lutein, plant pig­ments that have been found to pro­tect your eye health* – or pre­vent fur­ther de­cline. Looks good. Fresh, tinned or frozen – take your pick, then reap the health ben­e­fits

2 Heat things up if you want to make the most of your serv­ing. Cook­ing on the cob in­creases an­tiox­i­dant lev­els by up to 53%*, plus it re­leases the can­cer-fight­ing com­pound fer­ulic acid, which the body would oth­er­wise strug­gle to digest.

3 Rheuma­toid arthri­tis ain’t any­thing you have to worry about, right? Well, it af­fects women more than men, so build up your de­fenses now. Corn is rich in beta-cryp­tox­an­thin, which pro­tects against the ox­ida­tive dam­age that can cause in­flam­ma­tion. Swell.
