A native remedy to South India and Bengal, Tabashir (Tabasheer) or Bamboo Manna (Bamboo Silica), an herbal silica, is a siliceous resin found in the nodes of the female bamboo tree. Bamboo is an edible grass that has been part of the diet of humans and animals alike for thousands of years. Bamboo Tabashir Silica has been used traditionally as a rich source of naturally occurring, organic silica.
Its silica content can be as high as 85% or more than 10 times the level found in the widely used Horsetail plant that contains about 5 to 7%. Besides silica, Tabashir silica contains iron, calcium, choline and betaine. These Tabashir capsules also contain Lithothamnion Calcareum, a calcified seaweed, a uniquely porous structure of seaweed skeletons which provides a highly absorbable source of calcium, and also contains significant levels of trace minerals extracted from the seawater.
This synergistic blending of mineral properties makes bamboo silica (Tabashir silica) an excellent and effective remineralizing agent for hair and nails, useful in cases of osteoarthritis, painful joints, fragility of the cartilage (osteoporosis), and in prevention of the consequences of arteriosclerosis. Also helpful in alkalizing the body. Tabashir Powder Made in India. Lithothamnion Calcareum Made in France. Capsulated and Bottled in USA.
