Bamboo is consumed in Asia, where it is known for its healthful properties. The abundance of silica in bamboo causes a silica gel to form in the hollow stem of the plant. This gel is called tabashir. Solaray Bamboo Extract is standardized for organic silica and is intended to provide nutritive support for healthy connective tissue, bones, hair, skin, and nails.
The Guaranteed Potency (GP) herbs are for consumers who prefer extracts that identify certain marker compounds used in various studies. The herbs are tested to ensure a guaranteed potency of marker/active compounds and they are also Green Screened.
