Equisetum arvense

Equisetum arvense


Equisetum arvense (Horsetail) is an astringent, healing herb that is more related to the fern family than flowering plants.

The stems of horsetail are rich in bio-available silica, as well as magnesium, calcium and iron.

The presence of a saponin (equisetonin) and various flavonoids in horsetail's composition give it a mild diuretic action, and epithelial tissue regenerative and strengthening properties.
