The study was conducted by researchers at Department of Biochemistry at Hallym University who found that the spread of diabetic nephropathy can be stopped by the cellular and molecular activity of purple corn.

Purple corn, grown natively in Chile and Peru, has been found to reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases and certain cancer, lower blood pressure, prevent atherosclerosis and also sustain weight when ingested with a high fat diet.
