Cornsilk –the silky tassel inside the corn husk–is not often considered a food, but it is highly valued in herbology as a urinary system support. Corn is indigenous to central America, but is now widely cultivated elsewhere. After the corn plant has shed its pollen, the silk is gathered and dried, then powdered for various uses. It contains silicon, B vitamins and PABA, and moderate amounts of iron, zinc, potassium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. Cornsilk is very popular in Chinese herbology, and is an example of one of the many valuable sources of nutrition that go overlooked or are considered waste by the general population.
