100% ORGANIC HORSETAIL EXTRACT
The horsetail plant (Equisetum arvense) belongs to the family of ferns and is known for its high antioxidant and mineral content. For our product we chose an organic horsetail extract - the only one on the market. In contrast to supplements with horsetail powder, our capsules contain a high-strength 5:1 extract, providing a more concentrated source of the various phytonutrients naturally present in the plant. In fact, one capsule contains 500 mg organic horsetail extract which is equivalent to 2500 mg dried horsetail. By using an organic extract and not one derived from conventional farming, we can ensure a high-quality, non-GMO, herbal supplement free from pesticides. Additionally, our product is lab-tested and free from any unwanted additives such as microcrystalline cellulose and magnesium stearate and suitable for vegans.
Horsetail is rich in silica. This mineral is required to produce collagen, an essential component of the skin, blood vessels, joints, and other connective tissues. That's why horsetail is a popular supplement for hair, skin and nail health, as well as bones and joints.
GOOD TO KNOW
- Horsetail plants can be used to polish metal and wood because of their rough, silicon-impregnated stems.
- Ancient Greeks and Romans used this plant as an herbal remedy to stop bleeding and speed up the wound healing process.
- Due to high dose of an enzyme (thiaminase), animals - such as horses - can experience poisoning after consuming large quantities of raw horsetail.
