Corn fibers are a component of Biofiton Healthy Liver, Liver Recovery, Healthy Vessels.
Thanks to the unique cryogenic grinding technology (Cryo Grinding) up to 100% of the cells are opened, increasing the efficiency and power of herbs several times.

GENERAL INFORMATION
Long, shiny fibers at the top of a corn ear, also called corn silk. Corn silk is used as a medicine.

PHARMACOLOGY
Maize fibers are used for bladder infections, urinary tract inflammation, prostatitis, kidney stones and nocturnal enuresis. It is also used to treat congestive heart failure, diabetes, high blood pressure, fatigue and high cholesterol.
Corn fiber has been found to be useful in many problems with the urinary tract, associated with impaired renal and cardiac function. It turned out that doctors appreciate corn fibers due to the treatment of cyst irritation caused by concentrations of phosphoric acid and uric acid, as well as acute and chronic bladder inflammatory conditions, both traumatic and idiopathic. In addition to diuretic action, corn fibers also appear to be a stimulant of the heart. In fact, its diuretic effect is largely caused by tonic effects on the heart and blood vessels. This is particularly valuable in bladder disorders in children, in gonorrhea, and in cases where the distribution of urine is susceptible to bladder.

MORPHOLOGY
Sort
With an erect, single stem, height 0.5 to 2.5 m – depending on the variety (in the tropics up to 6 m).
Stalk
In nodes full, internodes filled with a spongy core. In a more humid climate, some varieties in knots form adventitious support roots.
Leaves
Curled, wavy, with a wide plate and a short tongue, slightly pubescent on the top, singly growing out of the knot.
Flowers
Single-seed and wind-plant (anemogamia). The inflorescences of male flowers in the form of a panicle of 10 to 40 cm in length are set on the tips of the stalks. The panicle consists of numerous double-shaped spikelets embedded in pairs, spirally, on the inflorescence axis. In flower three stamens with anthers containing up to 2,500 pollen grains. Female inflorescences planted on shortened side shoots transformed into settlements forming flasks standing one by one in the groin of leaves, covered with vagina. The earplugs are double-shaped, one of which has a normally developed post with a very long mark (up to 70 cm), the other is residual, unable to fertilize and create seeds. The weight of the flask which is blooming ranges from 40 to 500 g.
Fruit
Grain with a very variable shape and coloration depending on the variety. Ripe from white color through yellow, orange, brown to dark purple.
The root system
Beam, reaching from 100 to 200 cm deep into the soil. Some varieties give off to the soil fragrances attracting tiny nematodes, and these kill the larvae of pests – corn rootworm.

OCCURRENCE
After the discovery of America, corn was brought to Australia, Asia, Africa and Europe. The earliest cultivation of maize was concentrated in Portugal and Spain. At the turn of the 16th and 17th centuries it reached Switzerland, France, Italy, the Balkan countries and northern Europe.


BOTANY
Cultivated plant – it is characterized by high efficiency and nutritional value. In poorly developed countries, it is the basis of food, in highly developed countries – it is mainly used as livestock feed.
Maize is thermophilic for germination needs temperatures above 10˚C, and in subsequent stages of vegetation above 16˚C. At the temperature of about 22˚C, the highest growth of maize occurs. Therefore, ideal conditions for the development of the plant provide a subtropical climate, also adapts well in a temperate climate. Despite the high climate requirements, maize has a good ability to adapt to different environmental conditions, because it is cultivated even at relatively high latitudes (56˚N in Canada and Russia).
