Description

Milled Horsetail Herb contained in size '0' Vegetable Cellulose Capsules. Sold in Bags of 1000 Capsules.

Equisetum arvense, the field horsetail or common horsetail is a herbaceous perennial plant, native throughout the arctic and temperate regions of the northern hemisphere.

It has separate sterile non-reproductive and fertile spore-bearing stems, growing from a perennial underground rhizomatous stem system.

Horsetail is a member of the Equisetaceae family; the sole survivor of a line of plants going back three hundred million years. The name "horsetail", often used for the entire group, arose because the branched species somewhat resemble a horse's tail.

It is commonly confused with mare's tail, Hippuris vulgaris.

 

Medicinal Action and Uses

Anti-hemorrhagic – its astringent and anti-hemorrhagic effect explains the application of horsetail to such conditions as bleeding from the mouth, nose and vagina, its use to check diarrhoea, dysentery and bleeding from the bowel, and for slow-healing wounds, chilblains and conjunctivitis. It may be taken internally to stop bleeding from ulcers or curb heavy menstrual bleeding.

Anti-Inflammatory - 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.

Astringent - Its toning and astringent action make it of value in the treatment of incontinence and bed-wetting in children. It may be applied to such conditions as urethritis or cystitis with haematuria, reducing haemorrhage and healing wounds thanks to the high silica content.

Diuretic - It has an affinity for the urinary tract where it can be used to sooth inflammation, haemorrhaging, cystic ulceration, ulcers, cystitis and to treat infections. As a diuretic it is particularly suited to metabolic or hormonal oedema during the menopause.
