Bamboo Leaf Tea Benefits
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. Strength and flexibility. We are born with a lot and overtime it diminishes. Vegetative silica is very high in grasses but not in the foods we eat and so generally we need to actively add it to our diets. Tea infusions are a perfect way to add silica into your diet in a format that your body can absorb. Some of the other benefits of silica are listed below.

Bamboo & Soluble Fiber
In addition to silica Bamboo Leaf Tea contains 4% soluble fiber which equals 1g per cup of tea. This helps to regulate blood sugar levels in the body as well as aiding the body in waste elimination. Soluble fiber coats the lining of the digestive system. This helps to ease tension in the stomach region by relaxing the system. People who suffer from IBS or other digestive issues can see great results from incorporating soluble fiber into their diet. Slowing the digestive process also makes one feel full sooner and so aids in weight loss. Drinking teas made from bamboo can reduce or eliminate snacking. I like to make a cup of Chocolate Mint Chip when I am craving sugar. I find it to be the perfect combination for satisfying that desire. Soluble fiber also helps to regulate blood sugar which is vital for diabetics. By slowing the digestive system sugars are added more slowly to the blood stream. This helps the body to balance naturally the blood sugar levels. So drinking the tea prior to a meal can aid in the maintenance of blood sugar levels.
