Bamboo salt

While I was shopping in the Korean market today, I saw "bamboo salt." Never heard of it or seen it before. I did a quick google & chow search. There are a few sites on google mentioning this salt has several medicinal usage to it. You can use it to brush your teeth, wash your face, have a pedi, etc. Chow's story on 10 unique salts thinks it can replace table salt, and not much more than that. Has anyone actually use this before? Does it taste different than sea salt or table salt?
