Traditionally, Bamboo leaves have been used in Chinese medicine to sooth and calm fevers for centuries and as a hangover cure in Korea. Today, its popularity is growing in Western culture due to its extremely high silica content said to promote healthy skin, nails and hair. This high silica content is what allows the bamboo plant to be the fastest growing plant on earth and be so flexible that they can withstand hurricane strength winds.
