Bamboo and Soluble Fiber

In addition to silica Bamboo Leaf Tea contains 4% soluble fiber which equals 1g per cup of tea. This helps to maintain healthy blood sugar levels in the body as well as aiding the body in waste elimination.  Soluble fiber coats the lining of the digestive system.  This helps to ease tension in the stomach region by relaxing the system.   Slowing the digestive process also makes one feel full sooner.   By slowing the digestive system sugars are added more slowly to the blood stream.
