Evolution Mine introduces Bamboo Leaf Tea - Bamboo Tincture made from bamboo grown organically in Florida.
Glycerine is a clear, odorless liquid made from vegetables in this case coconut oil, and it can be used to extract herbs in a non-alcohol format. Alcohol works great for some components of herbs and in general is a highly effective way to deliver herbal medicine. Glycerine is a bit subtler but I like using it with bamboo because it tends to extract water soluble elements and minerals a bit better than alcohol and silica is water soluble.
It has a sweet flavor but is not processed by the body like a sugar and so is safe for small children, diabetics, pregnant women, and others who have sensitivities to sugars. It has a demulcent effect and can be very useful for sore throats or coughs.
This glycerine extract can be taken orally under the tongue or added to drinks or smoothies. It will sweeten anything it is added to without taking the sugar hit 🙂
- improving cardiovascular health
- reducing inflammation especially due to arthritis
- increase hair growth and strength
- upper respiratory infections, sore throat, and coughs (best when added to raw honey)
Directions: Place 2-10 drops under the tongue and leave for 30 seconds or more. Alternatively add 2-10 drops into a beverage.

Bamboo benefits in tea:
Silica is the essence of bamboo. When one thinks of a bamboo we picture a tall and strong plant that bends and moves in the wind. This is silica. Strength and flexibility. We are born with a lot and overtime it diminishes. Vegetative silica is very high in grasses but not in the foods we eat and so generally we need to actively add it to our diets. Tea infusions are a perfect way to add silica into your diet in a format that your body can absorb. Some of the other benefits of silica are listed below.
improves skin elasticity
benefits teeth and gums
improves connective tissue and strengthens musculoskeletal system
plays a role in helping the body to eliminate aluminum
strengthens hair and nails and encourages new growth
thought to improve cardiovascular system
may help to reduce high blood pressure
essential for bone growth
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 regulate 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. People who suffer from IBS or other digestive issues can see great results from incorporating soluble fiber into their diet. Slowing the digestive process also makes one feel full sooner and so aids in weight loss. Drinking teas made from bamboo can reduce or eliminate snacking.
"I like to make a cup of Chocolate Mint Chip when I am craving sugar. I find it to be the perfect combination for satisfying that desire. Soluble fiber also helps to regulate blood sugar which is vital for diabetics. By slowing the digestive system sugars are added more slowly to the bloodstream. This helps the body to balance naturally the blood sugar levels. So drinking the tea prior to a meal can aid in the maintenance of blood sugar levels."
Bamboo teas as well as shoots are high in antioxidants and other vitamins and minerals that help maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Bamboo has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties and detoxification properties. It has been used medicinally in Asia for upper respiratory issues, digestive issues, and liver support.
Bamboo Leaf Tea does not contain caffeine so it can be enjoyed at anytime of the day hot or cold. Some of the blends that do contain caffeine are Green tea + Lemongrass, Chocolate Mint Chip, Chai, and Breakfast Black.
A typical cup of bamboo leaf tea contains 1 g of dietary fiber. Dietary fiber aids your body's natural cleansing systems. This can contribute to digestive health, as well as help your body clean your bloodstream of harmful LDL cholesterol.
Like other plant teas, the micronutrients in bamboo leaf tea may have an effect on some of your body systems. Polyphenols can reduce free radical cell damage, and may slow aging. Catechins interfere with your processing of dietary fat, which might help you lose weight and reduce your cholesterol production. In his book "The Superfoods Rx," Dr. Stephen Pratt reports that most teas contain high levels of both. Proponents of bamboo leaf tea state that it contains amounts of both similar to those in green tea -- however, no clinical data supports this claim as of 2011. Credit: Livestrong.com
