What is Cornsilk?
Corn is one of the most significant of the North American grains, and historically a food staple of numerous Native American tribes. However, few people know that these tribes did not only harvest corn to eat the kernels, but they also saved the corn silk, or stigmas
to brew as an herbal tea. Few people are aware of the remarkable ways that corn's long silks at the tip of the “ear” benefit common ailments. When used medicinally, a fascinating transformation occurs from initial harvesting of the fresh yellow silks. As the crop dries, it becomes curly and brown, before sometimes being made into a powder.
