Benefits of Bamboo Shoots
High amount of antioxidant properties
With a high amount of antioxidant properties, the shoots contribute towards averting the risk of colon cancer. Bamboo is good in minerals, especially manganese and copper. In addition, it has small amounts of some other essential minerals and electrolytes such as calcium, iron, and phosphorus. Manganese is used by the body as a co factor for the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase. Copper is required in the production of red blood cells. Iron is required for cellular respiration and red blood cell formation.
