See title. I am really wondering, it would make things alot easier. Bamboo extract is a popular supplement.

Isn't bamboo extract high in silica, which Ray Peat is not in favor of, if I read correctly. Supposedly, bamboo extract can have 70% silica content.

Just guessing here but I think the benefit of bamboo shoots, like carrots, is in its fibrous structure which absorbs bile acids and endotoxins. Not sure if silica would do the same.

+Bamboo is high in silica-
Might the form of silica (synthetic or natural) make the difference in whether or not it harms or heals? What about the touted "bio-available" forms of silica, like monomethylsilantriol and to a lesser extent orthosilicic acid? Are these the forms found in whole bamboo as well as the popular silica supplements like Bio-sil or Orgono?

I think there may be a persorption risk. Basically the glass like molecules can get into your bloodstream and clog up the capilaries

I thought that was the point of Peat's recommendation too.
For which purpose bamboo extract would be as pointless as carrot juice.
