Bamboo Leaves Nutrition Facts
Bamboo is a tropical fruit rich in high-profile nutrients. With its unique flavor, taste, and health-promoting qualities, the bamboo leaves easily fit into the category of new functional "super greens."
Benefits of Silica
Silica is the essence of bamboo. When one thinks of a bamboo we picture a tall and strong plant that bends and moves in the wind. This is silica. Silica aids in strength and flexibility. We are born with a lot of silica but overtime, it diminishes. Vegetative silica is very high in grass but not in the foods we eat.
Herbal Goodness has made tea using bamboo, which makes it easier to add to your diet. Tea infusions are a perfect way to add silica into your diet in a format that your body can absorb. The benefits of silica include:
- Supports skin elasticity
- Benefits teeth and gums
- Improves connective tissue and strengthens musculoskeletal system
- Strengthens hair and nails and encourages new growth
- Supports cardiovascular system
- Maintains healthy bones
Bamboo and Soluble Fiber
In addition to silica, our bamboo leaf tea contains 4% soluble fiber which is equivalent to 1gram per cup of tea. This helps to maintain healthy blood sugar levels in the body, as well as, aid the body's waste elimination. Soluble fiber coats the lining of the digestive system. This helps to ease tension in the stomach region by relaxing the system.Slowing the digestive process also makes one feel full faster. By slowing the digestive system, sugars are added slower to the blood stream.
