Corn is rich is in Iron (2.71mg), Folic Acid and Vitamin B6 which helps in the creation of red blood cells in the body.  

Gluten-free

May Reduce The Risk Of Cancer

Corn helps to reduce the risk of certain cancers such as lung cancer and colon cancer.

Prevents Hemorrhoids

The fiber content of one cup of corn amounts to 18.4% of the daily recommended amount. This aids in alleviating digestive problems such as constipation and hemorrhoids.

Avocado health benefits are extensive and include:

Boost Brain Health and Memory

Avocados may boost brain health and memory, due to its rich oleic acid (or OEA), an omega-9 fatty acid that’s linked to improved cognition.
