Several studies have suggested that bamboo salt can be effective in cancer prevention and treatment. Below, we’ll take a deeper look at the anti-cancer properties of bamboo salt and what the research says about bamboo salt and cancer.

The benefits of bamboo salt for cancer

Based on the research, the benefits of bamboo salt that relate to the prevention and treatment of cancer include its ability to:

  • Prevent cell damage caused by radiation and chemotherapy
  • Inhibit tumor growth
  • Induce apoptosis

Bamboo salt’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties also contribute to its cancer-fighting capabilities.

What the studies say about bamboo salt's cancer-fighting properties

Bamboo salt's anti-tumor effect on sarcoma cells

In this study, researchers compared the anti-tumor effect of refined salt, which had been baked only once or three times, with bamboo salt, which had been roasted nine times on tumor-bearing mice. The bamboo salt cancer research team found that the nine-time baked salt had significantly higher anti-tumor activity than the other salts. The increase may be attributed to the fact that the longer the salt is baked, the greater its mineral content becomes, resulting in higher ORP and stronger anti-tumor effects.

Purple bamboo salt's preventative effects against buccal mucosa cancer

In addition, nine times roasted bamboo salt (also known as purple bamboo salt) has been shown to have a strong anti-cancer effect in vitro and exert preventive effects on buccal mucosa cancer in mice in vivo. In this study, researchers found that induced a stronger apoptotic effect than sea salt. They noted, "Overall, bamboo salt seems to have more potent anticancer and anti-inflammatory effects since it contains higher levels of minerals and more OH ions."

Bamboo salt's anti-cancer effects for melanoma skin cancer

Finally, in this study, researchers tested the therapeutic effects of bamboo salt on mice with melanoma skin cancer. After the bamboo salt was administered, these mice had reduced tumor growth and an improved survival rate, and the results suggest that bamboo salt may be "a potential substance for cancer therapy." 

Other health benefits of bamboo salt

Aside from cancer prevention and treatment, bamboo salt can boost your health in many other ways as well. For example, a diet containing bamboo salt helps to neutralize acidic food, turn it into alkaline foods with antioxidant power, and supplements various minerals.

By performing these functions, bamboo salt increases the natural healing power of the body and improves the metabolism that enables clean nutrients to be absorbed by cells and wastes to be excreted from the cells.
