The Power of Bamboo
There are so many great herbs in TianChi, it’s hard to talk about some of the less famous ones. Bamboo certainly falls into this category. We use an efficacious dose in regards to getting the health benefits associated with bamboo.
Bamboo contains 70% silica, a natural ingredient responsible for strengthening hair, nails, collagen, skin, and joints. These properties are only enhanced when combined in TianChi with he shou wu and eucommia, herbs famous for strengthening hair and bones.
Its cooling and calming properties make it a perfect fit with the kidney tonics cistanches and epimedium - maintaining the overall neutral balance of the formula. If you’ve ever eaten Chinese stir-fry then you’ve consumed bamboo in its most common form.
It’s the small rectangular vegetable in most dishes used as a source of fiber and intestinal lubricant. Think of it as a Chinese version of psyllium husks.
Bamboo is a common plant with an uncommon amount of research and uses in natural medicine. Green Med Info has a lot of fascinating research going on with bamboo.
Inflammation, Alzheimer’s, dementia, cognitive decline, blood sugar regulation, lipid control—the list goes on! You’d think something as amazing as bamboo would be easy to find, but we have it custom made to fit our formula.
We are very picky about what we put into TianChi, with each herb extracted the way we want it and bamboo is no exception.
If we pay so much attention to one of the 'minor' ingredients in TianChi like bamboo, can you imagine the amount of quality and detail goes into making the entire formula?!
