From the perspective of Chinese Medicine, bamboo shoots are cool in nature, and they can clear heat and phlegm and promote urination and excretion. Individuals with heat-related symptoms or those with wind-heat flu and lung-heat cough can consume bamboo shoots to dispel heat and clear phlegm. Besides, bamboo shoots are high in fiber. Hence, it can aid constipation.
Please note that bamboo shoots are a type of wind stimulating food that can aggravate existing skin problems. Individuals with a sensitive skin and edema or those with hives should avoid consuming them. Perhaps, people developed the ‘bamboo shoots are toxic’ impression because the edible shoots could irritate the skin.
