Medicinal benefits of tabasheer

The magic powder that makes you strong and flexible like bamboo! 😄

What is tabasheer?

When a bamboo is cut, the liquid contained in the plant naturally drains away.

Dried and micronized, it yields a powder called tabasheer, used in ayurvedic medicine.

Sometimes this sap has already solidified into white crystals inside the stem.

It contains :

  • Silica (up to 98%).
  • Calcium.
  • Amino acids.
  • Phosphorus.
  • Vitamin C.
  • Alkaloids.
  • Flavonoids.
