There are numerous, well-documented health benefits of Purple Corn Extract, which is rich in anthocyanins.

Anthocyanins are naturally occurring pigments belonging to the flavonoid group, which is a subclass of the polyphenol family (phenolic compounds).

Phenolic compounds are natural bioactive molecules found mainly in plant tissues that have shown interesting anti-aging bioactivities, which have led to great interest in their use by the pharmaceutical industry.

There has been significant research on these compounds and topics, supporting a wide range of benefits.
