History of Bamboo.
Here you will find information on Chinese bamboo products, Bamboo is also used in Chinese medicine. The leaves eliminate heat and phlegm; the juice cures strode, insanity, and a kind of asthma caused by excessive phlegm; and the root can stimulate the vital forces, quench thirst, and promote lactation.
Has been used in China for over 5000 years - the earliest history of bamboo use in the entire world. In ancient China, bamboo was used for making books, food, paper, some of the greatest palace buildings the Emperors had and many other items.
Bamboo, a member of the grass family, is one of the world’s most environmentally friendly products, which grows to a harvestable height between 4–6 years versus 10-100 years for most softwoods and hardwoods. Bamboo is harvested and replenished with no impact to the environment.
After harvesting, bamboo does not require replanting, it has an extensive root system that continually sends up new shoots, naturally replenishing itself, thus, making bamboo one of the most renewable resources in the world and an excellent alternative to hardwoods.
It is one of the fastest growing plants in the world, some species grow as much as two feet a day. In fact, when placed in the proper climate certain types of bamboo can grow up to 6ft a day. The reason that bamboo can grow so fast is because it is a grass and not a tree.
Bamboo can be selectively harvested annually and is capable of complete regeneration without need to replant, when harvested, 1/3 of the bamboo taken will completely grow back within one year. China is relatively poor in wood resources but is one of the few countries that is rich in bamboo products manufacturer resources.
Every April, mass new bamboo shoots grow out of the extensive bamboo root systems found on many mountains in Southeast China. Hundreds of different species of bamboo are found in many countries through out the world; however, China is the major producer of bamboo construction products and its history of bamboo utilization covers thousands of years.
In traditional Chinese culture, bamboo is a symbol of Oriental beauty. It represents the character of moral integrity, modest, loyalty, resistance and etc. Bamboo is such a beautiful and useful plant, not to mention an ecologically friendly material.
Stem used. In traditional Chinese medicine, it aids in digestion and supports cardiovascular health, the skeletal structure (strong bones and ligaments), and the skin. It contains amino acids, vitamins B1, B2,and C, and it is high in silica (70%). It dissolves immediately in water.
Bamboo extract is the richest known source of natural silica containing over 70% organic silica. This is more than 10 times the level as found in the widely used Horsetail plant (Equisetum) that contains about 5 - 7% silica. Bamboo Sil extract is prepared from Tabashir bamboo stem from India (Bambusa vulgaris).
Silicon (Si) is the second most abundant element on earth after oxygen. It is a sister element of carbon. Silicon's role as an essential nutrient was not established until 1972, but silicon is now known to play a part in the integrity of the skin, ligaments, tendons and bone.
The body constantly metabolizes silicic acid. Silica is eliminated through such natural processes as urination, hair loss and nail trimming. This natural secretion of silica can be from 10 to 40 mg daily.
The average adult body contains about 20 grams of silica, and it is necessary for the body's silica stores to be maintained at this level to promote good health. As we age, less silica is assimilated, therefore daily supplementation with Bamboo Sil will help maintain this necessary equilibrium and to minimize the effects of premature aging.
Silicon is thought to improve the cardiovascular system, as it is essential to the structural integrity, elasticity and permeability of the arteries. Silica may be useful in reducing blood fats & cholesterol. Atherosclerosis can occur as a result of silicon deficiency whereas silicon is abundant (up to 14 times more) in the arteries of people who are free of heart disease.
Silicon improves the condition of the hair, nails, teeth, gums and skin and has been used to alleviate eczema and psoriasis.
Silica plays an essential role in mineral absorption and may help in recalcifying decalcified bones & decalcify soft tissue deposits of calcium. Silicon enhances the function of iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium and boron, and is essential for normal bone development which may help prevent osteoporosis. Silicon helps to maintain the correct calcium-magnesium balance.
Silicon may be useful in strengthening the musculoskeletal system, preventing injuries and helping bones to heal in athletes & others.
Silicon supplementation may retard the aging process. At birth, the body contains a maximum level of silica that declines with age. As the body's natural level of silica declines, it exhibits the signs attributable to aging such as bone loss, dry and wrinkled skin, weakened teeth and gums and hair loss.
Silicon converts aluminum from both water and other dietary sources into soluble hydroxyaluminosilicates that cannot enter the bloodstream or brain. This has important consequences for preventing the development of Alzheimer's Dementia by assisting the body in eliminating aluminum. Aluminum is thought to be a causative factor in the development of Alzheimer's disease. Silicon stimulates chondroblasts to deposit chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid into the cartilage matrix. This has important implications in managing arthritis pain as silicon will improve the function and effectiveness of glucosamine sulfate which is the precursor of both chondroitin sulfate.
