Purple corn extract

Purple corn extract

Purple corn (Purple Corn), a native plant of the Andes, has extremely high phenolic compounds (phenolic compounds) and anthocyanidins (Anthocyanidins). Purple Corn (Purple Corn), Latin name ZEA MAYZ L., is a corn variety unique to Peru. The corn cobs and grains are purple. Purple Corn (Purple Corn) was planted as early as the pre-Inca period.Now widely grown in China, Aogubio supply the purple corn anthocyanin products which are extracted from our Chinese planting base.

Current research into the health benefits of purple corn have brought to light the positive effects on cellular health, weight management and glucose metabolism, healthy inflammation and vascular integrity. These health benefits are largely tied to purple corn’s high content of anthocyanins.  In fact, purple corn has one of the absolute highest levels of a particular anthocyanin—cyanidin-3-glucoside—that has been attributed to a number of significant health benefits in humans.Aogubio also can supply high quality anthocyanins.

Aogubio purple corn extract, offered in bulk, is ideal for a variety of applications including beverage formulations such as the well-know Peruvian drink “chicha morada,” and is a welcome addition to other functional foods and beverages and dietary supplements. They are suitable for use in capsules, tablets, drink mixes, cosmetics, and more.

The most widely studied polyphenols are flavonoids, which are divided into two major groups, anthocyanins and anthoxanthins. Anthocyanin is a very important water-soluble pigment, which is responsible for giving red, blue, and purple colors to plants.These pigments are widely found in our food, including fruits such as blueberries, cranberries, bilberries, also in eggplant, brown rice, grape skin, purple yam, and purple corn.

Anthocyanin has been widely used throughout the world as food coloring, and since ancient times has been widely used as an herbal medicine that can cure hypertension, fever, liver disorders, diarrhea and dysentery, urinary disorders and influenza. Several previous studies have shown that anthocyanins have high potential bioactivity in the prevention of various chronic diseases such as diabetes and cataracts triggered by diabetes.Anthocyanins can also improve blood lipid profiles and have vasoprotective effects and also have an effect on inhibiting growth and stimulating cell apoptosis cancer.


This small-scale pilot study studied the potential benefit of taking a concentrated dose of anthocyanin 300 mg once a day for 3 weeks (purple corn extract) on blood pressure among untreated Peruvian adults with mild-to-moderate hypertension. A double-blind placebo-controlled randomized crossover trial using intention-to-treat analysis was conducted on 30 healthy men and women who received care at the Dos de Mayo Hospital (Lima, Peru) between September 2010 and August 2011. The 4-phase study compared blood pressure readings on placebo and on purple corn extract. Blood pressure readings decreased from baseline levels to end of study, especially after taking a purple corn extract capsule for 3 weeks, regardless of age, gender, body mass index level, or initial average blood pressure reading. Individuals who had higher blood pressure readings at baseline showed the most marked reduction in systolic and diastolic readings. Additional study of the possible mechanisms of action and the pharmacokinetics of purple corn extract warrants further investigation.

According to Xinhua News Agency reported on October 11, 2000: A Japanese research team found through animal experiments that the pigment of purple corn has the effect of inhibiting the occurrence of cancer. A scientific research team composed of Nagoya City University Shirai Tomochi and others used mice for experiments and obtained the following results: The incidence of cancer in mice that ate the feed mixed with purple corn pigment was 40% lower than that of mice that did not eat the feed. , thus confirming that the pigment of purple corn has the effect of inhibiting the occurrence of cancer.
