There are more than 1,000 species of bamboo in the world and it grows in conditions varying from cold mountains to tropical regions.
Bamboo contains over 70% organic silica extract and is the richest known source of natural silica. It plays an important role in the integrity of the skin, ligaments, tendons and bone. It is necessary for the body's silica stores to be maintained to promote good health. Bamboo can improve the strength of teeth (as well as whitening) and helps condition the hair, nails, gums and skin. It is therefore used successfully in cosmetics and toothpaste. It has been used to minimize the effects of premature aging.
Silica-rich bamboo can relieve joint pain and increase flexibility. Silica is essential for normal bone development and supports healing of the bones.
Useful in strengthening the musculo-skeletal system, it also plays an essential role in mineral absorption and enhances the function of iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium and boron. It is also may support the cardiovascular system and help maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
Additionally, Bamboo has been used extensively as an ingredient in skin care products. It can help maintain moisture levels and remove toxins, dead cells, and dirt deep in the pores. Bamboo also protects the skin against bacteria and fungus, helping avoid various skin troubles, and it is used as a tooth polisher.
Bamboo, reaching heights of 90 feet tall, is certainly the tallest grass you'll find anywhere. Bamboo stalks are round, straight, and hollow, and can grow three or four feet each day (that's up to two inches every hour!). The bamboo plant also grows stems horizontally underground, creating a webbed root structure and forming a grove that effectively blocks the growth of rival plants or trees.
Bamboo has long been seen as a symbol of honesty and integrity. In China, it represents longevity and in India it is a symbol of friendship. But Bamboo is also a useful plant of many functions. Around the world, it is used for food, medicinal treatment, construction material, household products, tools, decorative items, and musical instruments, to name just some of the many ways the versatile plant has been put to use.
