High in silica
Along with turf, bamboo belongs to the poaceae family (grasses). There are 1,300 species, primarily in South America and Asia. A particular characteristic of bamboo is that it can grow 1 metre in just 24 hours, making it a preferred choice for the construction of furniture, parquet floors and various other items! With a high silica content, this plant is known for its beneficial effects on bones and joints (bamboo stem extract: 30 mg/day silica).
