Horsetail is rich in silica and helps to fix calcium in the body
Hair: Studies demonstrate that the high ratio of silica found in horsetail aids in boosting hair growth, making it strong and lustrous and is also effective in aiding dandruff, hair loss and split ends. The unique and rich mixture of minerals and organic compounds in horsetail have been shown to strengthen hair follicles and overall scalp health.
Bones and Teeth: In Italy, a calcium blend used for decades to prevent fractures and enhance bone strength is being studied now to evaluate Horsetail's positive impact on bone density. Silica is one of the rarest minerals needed by our body and there are very few accessible sources of it in our diet, which is why you so often find it in supplement form. However, horsetail has naturally high concentrations of silica, which is a key element in protecting bone mineral density and integrity as we age. Dietary silica intake is linked to greater bone mineral density in menopausal women and men in some studies. If you are at high risk of Osteoporosis or already suffer from bone degradation, then adding horsetail to your diet may be an easy solution to slow the decline.
Nails: Horsetail is shown to contain minerals that assist with nail growth and development and aids in the elimination of white spots and weak and brittle fingernails.
Other Benefits: Horsetail is one of the best known herbs for removing heavy metals from the body. It also has an affinity for the urinary tract where it can be used to soothe inflammation, hemorrhaging, cystic ulceration, ulcers, cystitis and to treat infections. It is considered a specific remedy in cases of inflammation or benign enlargement of the prostate gland and is also used to quicken the removal of kidney stones.
