Corn silk is used for bladder infections, inflammation of the urinary system, inflammation of the prostate, kidney stones, and bed wetting. It is also used to treat congestive heart failure, diabetes, high blood pressure, fatigue, and high cholesterol levels.
Corn Silk Tea is a unique brew, crafted from corn on the cob's silk strands. Its earthy, slightly sweet flavor delights, and without caffeine can be enjoyed throughout the day.
How to Make: Boil 1 tablespoon of corn silk (chopped) in 1 cup of water. Once it is done, cover the pot and allow it to steep for 15 to 20 minutes. When it is cold enough to drink, you can add 1 teaspoon of raw honey if you desire. You can store the remaining tea in your refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.
