1)抗过敏功能/Anti-allergic Function

根据研究人员表示,竹盐能抑制急性过敏反应。竹盐可以抑制组胺(Histamine)的分泌,口服或者注射竹盐明显改善因过敏而产生的肿胀。(Shin, Hey-Yong et.al., 2004)

2)避免肥胖/Anti-obesity Function

最近科学研究表示竹盐可以帮助减轻体重及降低血脂功能。这项研究表明竹盐对肥胖症有预防的作用。(Park, Kun-Young, et. al. 2013)

3)抗癌功能/Anti-cancer Function

竹盐比起精致盐及海盐拥有明显更优越的抗癌及抗基因变种的效果。(Hwang, Kyung-Mi, et al., 2007; Park, Kun-Young et. al., 2012).

4)预防口腔疾病/Dental Treatment and Preventive Care

使用竹盐水漱口比起使用自来水漱口的口腔病人拥有更坚硬的牙齿。此外使用竹盐漱口的口腔病人的矿物质流逝量远远低于没有使用者。(Choi, CH, et. al., 2012)
另一项研究表明含有竹盐成分的牙膏可以减少牙菌斑并且减轻牙龈发炎。(Min, B.S., et. al., 1995)

5)抗炎性功能/Anti-inflammatory Function

虽然盐本身是产生炎性物质。然而,竹盐有别于普通盐,它可以抗发炎。因此,竹盐对于预防及治疗发炎性疾病有举足轻重的角色。(Shin, Hye-Young, et. al., 2003)

6)预防肠炎沙门氏菌感染/Preventive Care for Salmonella Entertidis

一项实验室实验检验了20种不同的盐对抗肠炎沙门氏菌感染的效果(精致盐、烤盐、加工盐、进口盐、海盐及竹盐)。在20种不同的盐里,只有竹盐拥有抗肠炎沙门氏菌感染的效果。之后,科学家也发现竹盐拥有微量的抗菌成分能有效抑制细菌滋生。(Moon, JH, et. al., 2009)

7)治疗及预防念珠菌酵母感染/Treatment and Preventive Care for Candida Yeast Infection

在竹盐中含有特别的抗菌成分对于细菌、真菌及病毒感染有显著的治疗效果。此外,竹盐液类似海盐对酵母感染及其带来的副作用有抑制效果。竹盐可以有效抑制酵母菌感染。(Moon, JH, et. al., 2009)

8)减轻化疗后的副作用/Reducer of Chemotherapy Side-Effects

顺铂(Cisplatin)这种化疗成分能有效消除癌细胞。然而,它的副作用导致大量的听力细胞死亡。竹盐能抑制导致听力细胞死亡的蛋白质媒介。因此,竹盐避免了听力细胞的凋零从而保护了患者的听觉。(Jeong, Hyun-Ja, et. al., 2011)

9)预防失聪/Preventive Care for the Ear

竹盐含有的镁成分可以预防因噪音导致的失聪问题。(Jeong, Hyun-Ja, et. al., 2011).

10)预防心血管疾病/Cardioprotective Effects

竹盐能生产出硫化氢(如NO及CO一样,是一种gasotransmitter)。NO主要帮助松弛较大的血管,硫化氢主要帮助松弛比较微小的血管。硫化氢有保护心血管,抗炎性,抗高血压及改善胰岛灵敏度的作用。(Saroraya, Chanmuang, et. al., 2011)

11)改善糖尿病

竹盐可改善肌体的耐糖性及提高肌肉细胞摄入葡萄糖的速度。因此,竹盐是不可多得的降糖食品。(Saroraya, Chanmuang, et. al., 2011)

12)改善关节炎/Treatment for Arthritis

当配合指压及竹盐护理,竹盐有效舒缓因关节炎所引起的关节及肌肉疼痛。因为,竹盐的镁成分比Epsom salt及死海盐更高。(Xu, Kai-Sheng, 2009)

13)改善喉咙痛/Treatment for Sore Throat

竹盐是抗炎性物质,可以有效抑制导致喉咙疼痛的发炎。(Choi, CH, et. al., 2012)
