Purple Corn Extract
CellFend's Purple Corn Extract is a 100% natural, potent cellular health supplement rich in organic compounds known as anthocyanins. Our Purple Corn Extract is pure, potent, and science-backed; designed for everyday use to support long-term cellular function.
What is Purple Corn?
Purple Corn has one of the deepest shades of purple found in the entire plant kingdom. This incredible vegetable has been cultivated and consumed for centuries by the indigenous people of the Peruvian Andes because of its health benefits. Only recently has modern science been able to reconfirm these ancient beliefs with supporting research and clinical trials.
What makes purple corn so special?
Its dark purple color, which is the result of an extremely high concentration of organic compounds known as an anthocyanins.
What are Anthocyanins?
Anthocyanins are colored flavonoids, which are phenolic compounds, that are natural pigments responsible for the purple, blue, and red colors of many fruits, vegetables, flowers, and other types of plants. Anthocyanins make blueberries blue, raspberries red, and purple corn purple. The word “anthocyanin” is derived from the two Greek words anthos (meaning flower) and kyanos (meaning blue).
All Natural Cellular Care
Rich in Bioactive Molecules
More than 20 bioactive phenolic compounds (natural molecules from plants), including phenolic acids, anthocyanins, and other flavonoids have been found in purple corn. These phenolic compounds have been shown in numerous in vivo and in vitro studies to have potent health-benefitting capabilities.
Anthocyanins Help Protect Mitochondria
A decline in mitochondrial quality and activity has been associated with aging and the development of a wide range of age-related ailments.
Mitochondria contribute to specific aspects of the aging process, including cellular senescence, chronic inflammation, and the age-dependent decline in stem cell activity.
Strategies directed at improving mitochondrial quality and function may have far-reaching beneficial effects.

Long-Term Cellular Health
Getting Enough In Your Diet
Getting enough anthocyanins from food intake alone is very difficult, which is why supplementation is so important. The average daily intake of anthocyanins is estimated to only be 12.5 mg/day/person in the United States. Each 1,000 mg serving of our Purple Corn Extract contains 100 mg of anthocyanins.

Purple Corn has 4.5x more
anthocyanins than blueberries!
Purple corn is one of the most powerful superfoods and antioxidants found in nature. For example, purple corn has 4.5x the antioxidant activity as blueberries (and blueberries already have one of the highest levels of antioxidants of any food source)!
Purple corn also has a higher anthocyanin content than other well-known superfoods such as arnoia (chokeberry), elderberry, black raspberry, black currant, bilberry, acai berry, and tart cherry.
Anthocyanins have the greatest antioxidant capacity of any of the flavonoid compounds.
Prior to our 30:1 ratio extraction process, our purple corn undergoes a 96-hour fermentation, which has multiple benefits.
Research shows that fermentation increases the amount of beneficial micro-organisms and bioactive substances, such as phenolic compounds, amino acids, antioxidants, and anthocyanins.
Fermentation can also improve the bioavailability of the supplement and the body’s ability to better absorb it.
