Bamboo has the highest amount of silica of any plant. It is what makes bamboo so strong and flexible. Our tea has been tested and has 350 mg of silica per cup. We have worked with nutritional consultants to formulate the best processing techniques and are confident that our product is of the highest quality.

Bamboo is also high in fiber and the tea contains 4% soluble fiber. This is a must for anyone who suffers from stomach tension or other digestive issues. Soluble fiber actually coats the lining of the digestive system allowing it to relax. This heals the lining of the digestive system which is the basis of our immune system. Soluble fiber has been shown to help with IBS, ulcers, as well as stress-related digestion issues.
Bamboo also has water-soluble vitamins that are extracted in tea. It is particularly high in B-6 pyridoxine. This vitamin has shown to be effective in reducing levels of homocysteine thereby improving the cardiovascular system as well as improving cognition.

I have always encouraged clients to begin by drinking the tea twice a day for a month and then evaluating where their healing journey is. Starting a new routine takes a bit time for the habit to settle and for the benefits to be seen. The tea bags can be used more then once by simmering the water and / or brewing it for longer. Bamboo loves heat and it’s ok to boil the water.
