More information on the benefits of Our Bamboo leaf and Nettle tea

So who doesn’t want to have healthy hair, radiant skin and strong nails?

If you are looking to achieve healthier skin, hair and nails then consider silica found in Bamboo as your new best friend. 

Silica is essential to bone growth and for the development of the body. When you are young, your body has abundant levels of silica which is why children normally have beautiful silky hair, soft skin and perfect nails. We are born with large amounts of silica and low amounts of calcium and as we age, we lose silica and our bodies deposit calcium in our glands which leads to what is termed “calcification” of our tissues and the eventual loss of gland functions. Bamboo contains more silica than any other plant so is the richest source of natural silica.

Bamboo leaves as well as shoots are high in antioxidants and other vitamins and minerals that help maintain a healthy lifestyle.  Bamboo has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties and detoxification properties.

Stinging nettle, or urtica dioica is the other essential ingredient in our Bamboo tea.  Despite its reputation for pain, stinging nettle is used to help ailments. Studies have shown that stinging nettle has antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-ulcer, astringent and analgesic capabilities. Because of stinging nettle’s antihistamine and anti-inflammatory qualities, it can also be a natural treatment for skin conditions such as eczema.

 

Nettle is a perennial flowering plant that has been used medicinally for ages, dating back as far as Ancient Greece. Dioscorides in the 1st century A.D. used crushed nettle leaf as a ‘bandage’ for wounds that had gone septic; he also extracted the juice to treat nosebleeds.

 

Our blend is made using only the leaves. Some of the many nutrients include Vitamin A, various B Vitamins (including B-1, B-2, B-3, and B-5), Vitamin C, amino acids, calcium, fatty acids, folic acid, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and potassium.

 

Bamboo Leaf Tea does not contain caffeine so it can be enjoyed at any time of the day, hot or cold.
