Benefits of Bamboo Shoots
Research studies conducted on bamboo shoots have indicated that leaves of bamboo shoots consist of phytosterols such as flavone, amylase and chlorophyll. Out of these, chlorophyll showed properties of controlling mutations and cancer. Japanese scientists recently discovered that bamboo shoots contain anti cancer agents and making them a regular part of your diet effectively eliminates the free radicals that can produce dangerous carcinogens.
