Bamboo Isoflavones (Lactobacillus/Arundinaria Gigantea Leaf Ferment Filtrate) Arundinaria Gigantea or giant bamboo is native to the United States. It is a hardy and fast growing renewable resource. Bamboo is not only a rich source of natural silica it also contains isoflavones with ORAC values higher than that of vitamin C with cell proliferation stimulating capabilities. In order to enhance the extraction of the active components of this plant, bio-fermentation techniques have been utilized. The Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) test was used as a way to measure antioxidant activity. The RFU values for a 0.1% concentration of Bamboo Isoflavones exceeded that of 0.1% of vitamin C by over 1000 on the ORAC scale indicating that the isoflavones contained in the product have strong antioxidant and skin protective benefits. Bamboo Isoflavones function well as an all-around anti-aging ingredient not only capable of preventing damage to the skin due to oxidative stress but also stimulating cell proliferation to aid in repairing existing damage with the added benefit of strong antioxidant protection.
