El maíz: Uno de los alimentos más completos

El maíz es un alimento muy completo que contiene principalmente vitaminas A, B y E, así como un sinnúmero de minerales, que favorecen el metabolismo en el cuerpo. Por ello es beneficioso para combatir diversas enfermedades como la diabetes o los problemas de hipertensión.


Se conoce que el maíz es una fuente importante de antioxidantes gue previenen la formación de radicales libres y, por tanto, de enfermedades cancerígenas. Algunos de sus compuestos fundamentales han sido usados con éxito para combatir tumores en cáncer de mama y de la próstata. La cocción del producto, por cierto, aumenta sus propiedades antioxidantes.


Como es un alimento muy completo en vitaminas, su consumo es vital para un adecuado desarrollo del sistema nervioso en cualquier etapa de la vida. Es rico sobre todo en vitamina A, nutriente esencial para el buen funcionamiento de la vista y la lozanía de la piel. A las mujeres embarazadas se les recomienda incluirlo en su dieta, pues ayuda al crecimiento integral del feto.


El maíz es rico en distintos minerales, tales como: cobre, hierro, magnesio, zinc y fósforo. El hierro previene la aparición de la anemia. El magnesio es excelente para mantener una buena salud cardiaca. El fósforo por su parte interviene en el crecimiento del tejido óseo.


Es bueno saber que con tan solo consumir una taza de maíz ya estamos ingresando al cuerpo 9 % de la cantidad de proteínas recomendada diariamente. Sin embargo, al igual que ocurre con otros vegetales, el maíz no contiene todos los aminoácidos necesarios para el buen funcionamiento orgánico. Lo ideal es tomarlo en combinación con otros alimentos como los frijoles.


Tan sabroso producto es también una fuente importante de fibra. Por ello su consumo ayuda a regular la digestión, los niveles de colesterol en el cuerpo y los de glucosa, disminuyendo con ello los riesgos de sufrir enfermedades cardiovasculares.

No por gusto ha sido un alimento utilizado desde los tiempos antiguos en la alimentación familiar. Aprovecha todos los beneficios del maíz para la salud añadiéndolo a tu dieta regular. Hay muchas maneras de cocinarlo –en ensaladas, tamales, cremas, postres, entre otros– y te aseguro que ninguna de ellas deja de ser deliciosa. ¡A por ellas!
