Horsetail P.E. (plant extract)
Botanical Source: Equisetum arvense
Available:Silica, By HPLC 7%
Horsetail is very rich in silicic acid and silicates, 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 presence of these bioflavonoids are believed to cause the diuretic action, while the silicon content is said to exert a connective tissue-strengthening and anti-arthritic action.
Some experts have suggested that the element silicon is a vital component for bone and cartilage formations This would indicate that horsetail may be beneficial in preventing osteoporosis.
Anecdotal reports suggest that horsetail may be of some use in the treatment of brittle nails.
The constituents are:
Alkaloids, including nicotine, palustrine and palustrinine
Flavonoids such as isoquercitrin and equicetrin
Sterols including cholesterol, isofucosterol, campesterol.
Misc: a saponin equisitonin, dimethylsulphone, thiaminase & aconitic acid.
Since it was recommended by the Roman physician Galen, several cultures have employed horsetail as a folk remedy for kidney and bladder troubles, arthritis, bleeding ulcers, and tuberculosis.
Additionally, the topical use of horsetail is said to stop the bleeding of wounds and promote rapid healing. The use of this herb as an abrasive cleanser to scour pots or shave wood illustrates the origin of horsetail's common names-scouring rush and shave grass.
