If you have ever picked corn right from the plant and eaten it, you will know how sweet and juicy fresh corn is. Many won't eat raw corn like this thinking it needs to be cooked to have flavor. I have to admit, I was like this too. But one day my mother convinced me to try her freshly picked corn — how fresh? Well, within seconds of being picked. At first I was hesistant but my mother began eating her corn and so I thought,
why not? So I ate the corn and was dumbfounded by the pure sweet flavor. I remember thinking to myself,
why on earth would I ever buy corn again when it just doesn't compare to the freshly harvested? So if you grow your own corn and then eat it immediately after picking, you will be amazed at how delicious the corn is. But after about 20 minutes, this sweet juiciness begins to disappear. So if you are buying the corn from the store, it will simply never be as fresh as corn picked and either juiced or eaten immediately. Ultimately, corn does not stay fresh long. If you are buying corn or even if you are picking your own corn, only pick or buy the corn on the day you plan to eat it or juice it. Next, to help ensure the corn is still somewhat fresh, I would never buy corn that has been husked.
Although most vegetables that grow above ground are low or lower in sugar while most vegetables grown below ground are high or higher in sugar, corn is an exception to this rule. Corn, although grown above ground, is high in sugar. Do be careful when juicing corn that you do not spike your blood sugar level too high.
A lot of the corn on the market is genetically modified. I would personally suggest only buying organically grown corn. This way, you are guaranteed the corn is not genetically modified.
Boiling some corn silk in some water is said to be good for the kidneys.

Have you been wanting to do hatha yoga (stretching) but have found it either too difficult or you are not that flexible? If yes, and even if no, watch Jesse do some pure hatha yoga routines.
flow yoga, each pose in pure or traditional hatha yoga is held for a few minutes. While holding the pose, you focus the mind on the stretch. When you focus the mind, that's when you find silence.
