OVERVIEW:

Cornsilks are the silky tassels running the length of an ear of corn and they have a subtle, pleasant taste that blends well with other mild-tasting herbs. It is actually the female flower on a cob of corn. Cornsilk is not considered a food, but it has a long history in traditional cultures. Cornsilk tea is most commonly used for relieving urinary disorders and infections. Other possible benefits include lower blood pressure, relief of kidney stones, premenstrual syndrome, and it can help for losing weight.
