Beauty Secrets of Natural Bamboo Extract in Organic Skin Care

For some time I've been wanting to let our readers know about the many organic Beauty Secrets found in Organic Bamboo Extract!  This natural botanical extract is produced from the leaves and stalks of the Bamboo plant. Bamboo Extract is the richest known source of Silica; it contains over 70% organic Silica. Silica has a restorative benefit for many of the bodily tissues and is an essential nutrient as well. In particular, Silica plays a huge part in keeping the skin and hair healthy.  Recent studies have shown that daily supplements of Silica obtained from Natural Bamboo Extract can improve the health and condition of skin and hair, even alleviating the symptoms of eczema and psoriasis.

It's incredible that the skin is the largest organ in the body and is responsible for removing many of the environmental and other toxins we are exposed to.  The Silica in natural Bamboo extract provides  nutrients the skin needs in order for it to stay healthy. It actually improves skin health by aiding the body in absorption of essential minerals, like calcium, potassium, and magnesium.

Natural Bamboo extract also contains anti-irritant properties, and is soothing to skin when applied topically through skin care lotions, body scrubs or treatment creams.  Perhaps most importantly, this plant compound contains vital anti-oxidants, which fight off free radicals, work to minimize wrinkles and visual signs of aging and naturally produce a youthful glow.  Bamboo leaves have recently been recognized as a rich source of flavonoids used as antioxidants. The flavonoids can reduce inflammation, stimulate circulation, and inhibit allergic reactions.

Just to recap, Natural Bamboo Extract is known to:
  • Prevent premature aging and preserve the youthful radiance of the skin
  • Prevent wrinkles and other visible signs of aging
  • Reduce inflammation and improve common skin disorders associated with inflammation
  • Promote circulation
  • Help protect skin from free-radical attack

So, I'm a staunch believer in using Organic skin care products that contain Natural Bamboo's high Silica content, because they are very effective. This is due to Silica's ability to form a kind of "Cellular Cement," as it maintains the balance between elastin and collagen fibers.  This offers added anti-aging protection for the skin, and really helps to keep it looking smooth, supple and young. Voila'! (:

Dare to LIVE Fully!

"Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing." -Helen Keller

   Each day we are given new opportunities to offer our unique understanding to others. These opportunities promise deeper levels of awareness and the excitement which comes from an active life. We are simply asked only to trust that we will be given all that we require to be at our best- Today.

We can dare to fully LIVE today, to be grateful for all our blessings and for the new and perhaps challenging opportunities presented to us. In each of these experiences we can find invitations for new growth, to connect to others in caring ways and thus discover more about the people we have the potential to be.  It is important that we take note of every moment of these experiences, today.

   If we choose to isolate ourselves and withdraw from others, we choose to stagnate in our development as human beings. We gain a fuller life from interacting with others and new situations, whether they make us laugh, annoy us or even add stress to our lives. It is ironic that we only find deeper gifts and resources within ourselves when we feel most pushed to our limits.

   So, let's embrace LIFE and ALL that Today brings us- every opportunity for involvement with others, for new adventures and growth! Today will not come our way again- let's remember to appreciate all that it offers, to be involved in our daily activities, to feel deeply - to LIVE more fully.  (:
