Introduction

Zea mays is the botanical name for corn. Zea comes from Greek, meaning "to live." Mays comes from Spanish ma?z, or maize, the same word as a term in a native Mexican language meaning "mother," or "mother of life."

Corn silks are the silky tassels running the length of an ear of corn. They serve as styles or tubes for collecting the pollen that fertilizes each seed. Corn silk is not considered a food, but it has a long history in herbal medicine.

Packaging and Shipping

1 oz., 2 oz., and 4 oz. extracts come in amber glass bottles with a dropper.

8 oz. and 16 oz. sizes come in amber glass with a plastic screw cap and do not include a dropper. These sizes are produced to order. Please allow an additional three days for processing.

Typical Preparations

Usually taken as a tea, but can be used as an encapsulated powder or mixed with corn oil for application to the skin. May be administered as a capsule or extract.

Precautions

Do not use corn silk if you also take Lasix (furosemide).
