Peru Purple Corn

Purple Corn
By Purple Corn Benefits

Purple Corn has always baffled scientists and even the ancient royalty of Peru centuries ago–why the purple color and since when did it turn purple? Well, the why has been answered–it is due to the rich anthocyanin count in the plant. Anthocyanin being the pigmentation responsible for the deep purple color. But the when?

One article has it that the enigmatic purple corn has been here even before man fell in Eden. It’s the original corn God created, the article boldly claims, and only pollution probably turned it to white. But it has been preserved in Peru.

Whatever the reason, purple corn with the powerful anthocyanin grows only in the high mountains of Peru and along its coastlines. You may have purple corn also growing in your locality but it likely does not have the 16.4 mg per gram count that our Peruvian Continue reading

  • 8 -ounce baby bella mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 large green onions
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • kosher salt & pepper



Wash the spinach very well. Rinse it again, and drain it. You want your spinach as dry as you can get it. I used my salad spinner (Click HERE for Salad Spinner Kitchen Tips) to dry my spinach.

The vibrations emitted by anything are dependent on its predominant subtle basic component. This also influences the behaviour of all things. The proportion of these components in human beings can only be changed by spiritual practice. Continue reading
