About

Bamboo extracts are typically called silica since it’s made from the natural silica of the bamboo plant. It’s available in capsule or powder form in most over-the-counter stores. The juice from the bamboo plant is extracted, on which the silica is then produced. There’s a wide application for such a natural supplement as it boosts your hair, nail, and skin health. Many experts say that it can also aid in asthma and gallbladder problems. Bamboo contains methanol, a powerful healing agent that cleanses and promotes healing skin. Bamboo silica strengthens your skin's protective barrier by locking in moisture. It supports the synthesis of Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which prevents moisture loss. This means healthy skin that's both supple and radiant.


Dosage & Duration

Bamboo extract powder contains a high concentration of the plant’s beneficial compounds, including antioxidants and silica. If you opt for bamboo powder, take up to 600 mg (heaping 1/4 tsp) daily with plenty of water, or as directed by your physician.
