How To Make Bamboo Leaf Tea

Tea can be made from bamboo leaves and is very healthy and simple to prepare.  Bamboo leaves contain silica, which promotes healthy hair, skin, and nails.  Silica also plays an important role in bone density, is a building block of collagen, and prevents the absorption of aluminum in the digestive system.  Bamboo contains 10 times the silica of horsetail, so it’s much more effective as a remedy for stronger, healthier hair and nails.

This tea is very easy to make at home. You can also brew a large pot ahead of time so you have enough for 2-3 days. Here’s how you brew it:

  • Bring 8 oz of pure water to boil.
  • Pour over 1 bag of bamboo leaf tea or about 1 teaspoon of dried bamboo leaves in a cup.
  • Cover with a clean cloth.
  • Steep for at least 4-5 minutes. Sometimes I let mine brew for up to 10 minutes to get a stronger tea.
  • Add a little honey or stevia to sweeten, and a little lemon juice for flavor.
  • Enjoy!

You’ll want to drink at least one cup every day to notice a difference in your hair and nails, or 2-3 cups for maximum results.

It will take about 2-3 weeks to start noticing a different in your nails, and at least a month or so in your hair. So be sure to stick with this daily habit for 30-60 days.
