  • What's Horsetail Extract

This herb is also used to treat gastric ulcers and profuse (heavy) menstruation. Since it is one of the plants with the highest content of silica, it is used to slow down the process of osteoporosis (it is thought that silica strengthens bone), as well as to strengthen brittle fingernails. Externally, horsetail is applied as a skin antiseptic to treat minor infections, as well as to stop bleeding from minor cuts or wounds, even though this herb continues to be used for a variety of ailments.


Horsetail is very rich in organic silica, which provide approximately 2-3% elemental silicon. Potassium, aluminum, and manganese along with fifteen different types of bioflavonoids are also found in the herb.


The chemicals in horsetail may have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Plants related to horsetail contain chemicals that work like "water pills" (diuretics) and increase urine output.
