Kay answers all your chinese medicine and qi gong questions below:

Q: Is bamboo extract at 400 mg a day safe to take every day? Is it a good sorce of silica that the body needs?


A: Silica is a micronutrient that occurs in many natural foods (see some of the earlier answers on this expert page) that unless one has been diagnosed by a medical doctor or nutritionist as being deficient in this mineral, by having blood work, it doesn't make sense to take supplements of this trace nutrient - so I lean toward the idea that there is no safe dosage to take in supplemental form if you are not truly deficient.
